NAILS | It's the Year of the..Tigger?

I had so much fun drawing the tiger on my Lunar New Year nails for #CBBxManiMonday that I went hunting for more tiger nail art! I stumbled the CUTEST Tigger design from Dahlia Nails from a couple awhile back, but let's face it, Tigger and the whole Winnie the Pooh crew are always going to be awesome much like the Sesame Street family!

I apologize for the Cheeto-esque cuticle on Tigger, but there was a mishap and I actually had to paint OVER my mistake as I hate removing the whole nail completely so there are like 6 layers of polish on poor Tigger! I used SH Insta-Dri in Sunset Orange* as my base and then hand-painted the black stripes with acrylic paint. For Tigger's face I used the nude polish "Antique" from CND Vinylux* and acrylic paint for the details. What I think really makes this manicure cool is that they are matte! I was going to go with high polish, but I tested it out on my thumb and I liked the effect that Jo from Dahlia Nails had going on so I'm glad I did it!

I am counting down to the weekend because I am on staycation next week where I plan on getting lots of house things done! Have a great day everyone!
