Because we’ve been experiencing some cold and wet wintery days in Cape Town this past week, and houndstooth reminds me of winter coats & jackets… I decided to try my first houndstooth creation this week 😉

And although the houndsthooth pattern is traditionally black & white:


I decided to be colourful:


I started with my clear base coat, and then 2 coats of L.A. Girl color ADDICT nail colour – Urge.


When that was completely dry, I painted criss-cross lines over the green on each nail, using Tip top Nailchic – Surfer Girl.


Next I used a fine nail art brush to complete the finer details, again using L.A. Girl color ADDICT nail colour – Urge, and carefully finished off with a clear top coat.


Doing this design “freehand” requires a steady hand, and a lot of patience… so don’t come back and say that I didn’t warn you… lol

Have a great weekend everyone! Looks like we’re gonna have another cold and wet one here in Cape Town, South Africa… so wrap up warm!! xx
