Houndstooth motif skittle - #52WPNMC

Hi lovelies!

For once I'm not posting my Pick n Mix nails right at the end of the week! What has come over me? I think I was just busting to do my nails after wearing the same thing for three days (I know!) thanks to a silly cut on my finger keeping me away from the polish remover. Please avert your eyes from my sad, but healing, middle finger.

I am equally excited and sad about this weeks prompts. Excited because Houndstooth (!!) and sad because Red, Orange and Yellow - one of my least favourite colour combinations.

Even though I don't love the colour scheme I do love the houndstooth motif I ended up with. I don't have the time or inclination to freehand a whole nail of houndstooth, and I don't own a stamping plate with houndstooth! The shame!

This is not to say I entirely freehanded the motifs though. I considered it, them remembered I have Emily de Molly plate EDM03 which has some basic shapes. I stamped squares in the corner of each nail with a white from Nail Stamping Queen, then freehanded the extra detail. So easy with a crisp square to work off.
