Sam & Willy's Manicure
Howdy everyone! Tonight was the holiday dinner for my workplace. We really only have 4 employees so it's a small get together, but it's always a good time. In honor of our after hours evening, I decided to do a Sam & Willy's manicure. If you live in the Chicago area and haven't been by yet, Sam & Willy's is definitely worth a trip. We carry tons of cute dog and cat stuff as well as a great selection of healthy pet foods, including raw and grain-free diets. Ok, that's it for the plug, on to the nails!
I'm pretty proud of how this one turned out. The base color is 3 coats of Wet 'n' Wild in French White Creme. The portraits are done with black striping polish and various acrylic paints. For the letters, I just used a Sharpie. The only drawback to that is that sometimes the ink runs when applying a top coat. I think maybe I just need to let it dry longer before I use my Seche Vite but I was in a hurry last night to finish this one up.
Here's a close of Sam's portrait on my thumbnail:
