My entry for the Rebecca Likes Nails nail art contest!

Rebeccalikesnails.blogspot.com is hosting a very cool nail art contest! She wants contestants to create a manicure using one or more of her favorite nail art techniques/themes .. gradients, animal print, dots, bows, and Hello Kitty! How fun is that? I bet there are going to be a million adorable entries with a theme like this one!
My entry incorporates three of the themes.. Dots, bows, and Hello Kitty.

My entry is totally hand painted using a tiny art brush and some toothpicks. The polishes I used were L'Oreal Club Prive for the base, a mix of Urban Outfitters Afterhours and Wet n' Wild Tropicalia for the glitter dots, Wet n' Wild Tropicalia alone for the dots on the bows and Hello Kitty's bow, Essie Licorice for the black lines, Sally Girl White for the white parts, and NYC Lemon Cream for HK's little yellow nose! Everything is topped with a coat of Seche Vite. I had a ton of fun doing this manicure, and I am really looking forward to perusing the other entries!
Thank you so much for reading!
All the best,

Disclosure: I purchased all of these polishes myself :o)


  1. Great artwork! I haven't yet attempted a design on my nails, but it's nails like yours that inspire me! I'm very impressed. Tell me, did you do both hands? If so, I'm double impressed. My left hand is so much less dexterous than my right and so my right hand nails always end up looking like a 5 year old did them. Come to think of it, 5 year olds probably do a better job! Good luck in the contest!

  2. Thank you so much! I did do both hands, but trust me... this one came out better! Give nail art a try, practice makes perfect.. I'm sure you'll do great. I've become much more ambidextrous (with lots of tasks) through years of painting my own nails.

  3. this is adorable! thanks for the great entry :)

  4. Thanks so much, and thanks for holding the contest! Loved the theme!
