This Little Piggy Went To The Market…

In Nails, OPI, Sinful Colors by Jacki25 Comments

I recently joined the Facebook group Polish-Aholics Anonymous and this is my first “monday theme mani.” The theme was animals and instead of doing the normal animal print, I wanted to do something more out of the ordinary. My friend Heidi showed me a picture of these pig nails and I knew this was what I would do for the theme! Thanks, Heidi! This idea came from Rins at Simply Rins, here, and I tried to duplicate it.

 Another iPhone picture because it takes better pictures at night in my poor-lit house than my real camera. I really need to build a light box!

I used:
Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
Base Color: Zoya Caitlin
Pig Head: Sinful Colors Star Fish
Pig Ears and Nose: OPI Feelin’ Hot Hot Hot!
Details: Sinful Colors Black On Black
Top Coat: Seche Vite(even though I am breaking up with SV, I don’t have a replacement yet and this was too many layers for a non-quick dry)

Believe it or not, the hardest part for me were the nostrils. LOL. What do you think? My 3 year old daughter and I enjoyed doing the little piggy nursery rhyme after she saw my nails, hence the title. I even ended up telling her the story of the Three Little Pigs before bed last night. lol

So what do you think? Thanks for reading!

    @Sarah, thanks! I am not as creative as you and I usually need to look around at ideas before I can do my take on an idea(or duplicate). Just practice practice practice and your hands will get steadier 🙂
