V-Day Pink/Red Sponged Tiger Print

 Yeah, another tiger print, you should know by now. This one is pink to red fade with glitter. I had to do one for Valentines day because I've had it in my head a while and figured it would be perfect for it. 
 Start out with a white base. It doesn't have to be perfect, most of it will be covered up later anyway. 


 Sponge on pink acrylic paint leaving a little bit of white near the cuticle. Don't worry about being too neat, you can clean up around the nail later.


 With red acrylic paint do the same thing leaving a bit of pink showing.


 At this point I went ahead and cleaned up the acrylic paint but you can always wait until after top coat if you like. I added a red and silver glitter, Gettin' Miss Piggy With It, over the pink and red.


 Make your tiger print with black acrylic paint, you can see my tutorial on that here. Add top coat and your finished.



 Do you have you Valentines day manicure planned out? What will you be wearing?

  7. Very nice! As usual! I've just got a red jelly on my nails. I might add some white hearts but I'm not going anywhere on Valentine's Day. I hope you have a great one!
