National Dog Day Nail Art

Good evening, dear readers! It has been a rough week thus far here in the Jedi household. I have been having a difficult recovery from my C section a month ago, and after spending most of Tuesday and part of today in doctor offices, I'm going to have to surgery again soon to have my gallbladder removed. I'm not particularly thrilled about it, but if it means I'm no longer going to be in pain, sign me up! I'm exhausted after yesterday and today's gallbladder attacks, but after missing writing up my Turtle Tuesday post yesterday, I really wanted to get a post up today.

Today is National Dog Day! I created a nail art look earlier, and I felt today was the best day to share it in honor of our furry friends. Let's check it out!
I had so much fun creating this manicure! It's not something I probably would have thought to do normally, but it was a lot of fun to do!
I used transfer foils from Born Pretty Store for my base to get this fun flashy look. There were some areas that did not transfer well for me (you can see the bare spots on my nails), but I still liked it even like this. I then used bone herringbone vinyls from Up Your Nail- Disturbed Vinyls with Zoya Genesis for this awesome bone pattern.
I used Girly Bits Cosmetics Squirrel Sample #2 and the same transfer foils I used on the other nails for this colourful look.

Did you have dog-inspired nails for National Dog Day? What did you do? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time dear readers, have a wonderful night!
XO!

    1. Haha, thank you! I didn't have any issues like this after my first Csection, but I guess I have to check off the box this time. :P

  5. Wow these are so beautiful! I'll have to check out those foils. And I hope you feel better soon. Being a human cutting board has to getting really old...

    1. The foils were fun to play with! They aren't quite as me-friendly as I would like, but I'm determined to make them work for me. LOL!

  7. I'm sorry that you are having a hard time recovering from the c-section, and I hope that you will feel better soon. I can totally relate because after giving birth to my son my stitches popped and got infected. I pray that your gallbladder surgery goes well. Cute nails!
