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:

And one of Willy on my pinky:
