Giraffe Manicure

Yesterday I was reading blogs I follow as usual and I saw this cute tutorial for Giraffe Manicure at Katrina's Nail Blog. She really did an amazing job!sembah Thank you for the tutorial, it's really helpful!

I was really impressed with it, because it's so cute and adorable, but I didn't think I'll do it too, well not yesterday. I had in plan to remove Rich & Famous, but then I give a giraffe a try, but I wasn't sure if I could do it. I really don't have a hand for any nail art, so I just love konad for upgrading my manicures. ihikhik

I choose different color for base and for dots, but I did a quite similar giraffe as Katrina, but my giraffe isn't so adorable like her. All I've used is on this picture.

Base color: China Glaze - Rich & Famous
Dots on giraffe: Essence LE Into the Wild - Desert Fox
Dots: Essence LE Sun Delicious: Sunny Side Up
TC: Seche Vite Dry Fast TC

I don't have a dotting tool, so I had to improvise. I tried with toothpick, pencil,... but it didn't work. But then I try a ballpoint and it worked!!! Dots aren't so round but for the for the first time of doing this I was quite satisfied.

So, here is the picture of my version of Giraffe Manicure.sengihnampakgigi

What do you think - Fail or success?? Maybe it would be better with other colors and not pink. It's really not difficult so if I can make it, everyone can!kenyit If anyone will do this manicure, please let me know I would really love to see them.

Happy Sunday!

  2. So cute! You did a good job!
    My first dotting tool was a bobby pin ^_^ worked very well, try it!, or you can use a needle pin those whit the round heads, or anything with a rounded form.
    Sometimes random objects work better than the dotting tools ;).

  3. Succes! Very cute with these colors!
