|before top coat - I kind of like the 3D effect of the details :D|
Sgt. Frog revolves around a platoon of frog-like aliens that continually try to take over Earth, but get side tracked doing things like chores and adopting kitty cats and stuff. I'm super happy with how these came out! I'm not totalllly happy with how Sergeant Keroro, the green dude on my index finger, turned out but I like to pretend he looks crazy/sad because someone recently took away his Gundam toys.
I did these all freehand, but of course dotting tools helped ;) For the wittle faces and their hats, I mostly used the brushes from the bottle and just painted my nails half and half - going back to touch up as needed with a small nail art brush. For the eyes I used my favorite dotting tool trick - the eraser end of a pencil! On my dream list of made up things I wish were real for nail art is a set of dotting tools with HUGE dots. I would love love that, at least until I master the idea of doing polka dots with a paint brush (mine are always so hairy looking?).
If you'd like to know any of the particular polish colors, just give me a holler! I actually used all normal polishes this time instead of mixing my own shades :) Now don't forget to check out our sweet $200 gift card giveaway if you haven't entered yet (ends 9/15) an check out all the other Digit-al Dozen ladies below!
