Hello Kitty With Monsters Tutorial

 First off, I apologize for the horrid cuticles, the weather here has not been kind and snowboarding doesn't help either. Second, this isn't as in depth as I usually do my tutorials but if you have been around and have seen my other HK tutorials it is pretty similar to those. Plus, I sort of forgot to take pictures of everything but I am sure you will be able to follow along. 
 When I saw the monster designs for some of the new Hello Kitty stuff I knew I had to do nail art to match. My base is OPI Skull & Glossbones. Start off by making the basic shapes with black acrylic paint. I am only doing Hello Kitty's face on my ring fingers and the rest will be the plain monsters. 


 After you have the shapes, start filling in. I always do the white for HK's head first and work out from there. The monsters with the pointed horns are green and the crab looking ones are red and blue but you could do them any color you like.


 Finish filling in and adding details like the eyes, mouths, rosy cheeks, and HK's bow.



 Add top coat and you are done.



 Pictures of my right hand, not so great but I loved this one so much I wore it over a week! I did add some gold holographic glitter the next day but didn't get pictures of it with that.


 I do a lot of Hello Kitty designs so would you like to see every step of how I do them all or would you just prefer the pictures since most of them are done the same way?
