Itty Bitty Paw Prints
This is my own design, using my own polish that I bought with my own money. 🙂
This design was requested by another friend of mine. 😉
I know that “IHaveACupcake” on youtube has a similar design that’s just as fun and easy. Check her out!
This design is super easy to do! All you need is a few of your favorite colors and a dotting tool (which you can make yourself!).
Put down a base coat and your favorite color (I used a magenta type of polish).
Put a few drops of your contrasting polish on a piece of paper or on a plate or an old lid of something- you get the idea- something you don’t mind ruining. You’re going to be dipping your dotting tool in this for creating the paw prints. I used a pearly white on my left and black on my right for the paw prints.
Putting on the paw prints are really easy. Now personally I like paw prints that look a little more realistic so I put three dots close together in a triangular shape using my largest dotting tool. If you feel like that’s too much work you can just do one larger DOT for the center pad of the “paw”.
Then after that use a smaller dotting tool and make the “toes”. As you can see from the picture I made the two in the center kind of close together and then the last two on the sides. Be careful to not go to far down the sides or away from the middle because then it will start to look like you just put a bunch of random dots on…. but that could still be cool! 😀
You can put as many paw prints as you want or very few if you prefer. For example my little finger doesn’t have as much space as my other fingers so I did just one paw print on it. Kind of reminds me of my old high school team logo, not the same colors though 😦
What I used:
- Base Coat: OPI Naile Envy
- Magenta: China Glaze “108 Degrees”
- Pearly White: Sinful Colors “Tokyo Pearl”
- Black: Sally Hansen “Black Out”
- Top Coat: Seche Vite
I’m hoping that soon I will start making some videos to make it easier to understand what I’m talking about most of the time. I’m sure a lot of people are a lot like myself when it come to learning new things- you have to see it! Also I’ll be posting picture’s of my tool supplies and a link to a youtuber that has a tutorial on how to make your own dotting tools. I’m also hoping to start adding to the tips and tricks section pretty soon! So please feel free to contact me with any suggestions or requests! Good luck and have fun!
