NOTD : Houndstooth

Well hello there everybody ! So today I've got an AMAZING design on my nails which I'm super proud of ! What with all the houndstooth fashion craze and all the houndstooth nail designs going round at the moment, I decided I ought to give it a go for myself, and I have to say, I'm really really really pleased with the results !

So I've wanted to do houndstooth for ages now, and when Katy from Nailed It announced a couple of days ago that she was doing a nail art contest which only allowed you to use two bottles of polish, I started racking my brain trying to decide what design to do, when I realised that houndstooth would be the perfect pattern for using two different bottles of polish !

For this design the only two polishes I used (excluding base and top coat) were OPI Suzi and the 7 Düsseldorfs for the base colour and then for the black pattern I used Americal Apparel Hassid. May I add that I did this all freehand, including just painting plain squares instead of doing all the striping business, it seemed too much like hard work going over everything twice with my base colour and since I trimmed my nail art brush a bit it's a lot easier just to paint the squares !

And that's it for today everyone ! So it turned out this post hasn't been posted much earlier than the one yesterday, but oh well, these nails took forever to do and for a good cause as well (my satisfaction and the nail art contest, of course) ! Maybe tomorrow I'll post slightly earlier if I can, we'll see !

See you all then guys !

And also, there's only a few hours left in my giveaway ! Get in there while you can !
