Sorry guys! Still running a bit behind with this challenge as I haven't felt all that motivated to do my nails other than painting them, but I am determined to keep this up! Challenges like these are amazing for stimulating creativity especially when you have other people participating with you. Week 9 of the BCD Nail Challenge was "Nude" so I decided to choose the "most nude" of all the Sanrio characters to base my next manicure on! Rilakkuma is the stuffed bear from the Sanrio-X world and is just one of the cutest and most cozy-looking characters.

Though this nail art ended up a little messier than I would have liked (it was NOT a good painting night!), it was still fairly straightforward to create. I painted my ring finger with Butter London - Crumpet, the perfect nude, followed by Butter London - Tea & Toast, a deep creamy tan.

For the snout, I used white acrylic paint and black nail polish to create the smile, followed by dotting on the eyes with a large dotting tool. I waited quite a number of minutes for everything to dry as dots can smear readily with top coat. One coat of top coat and you have a cozy teddy bear on your nails!
