Grimm’s Fairy Tales: {Puss in Boots} Nail Art Tutorial

Hello my Beauties,

hope you’re ready for the weekend, beause I definitely am. It has been a tiring & busy week over all, so i’m really looking forward to get some sleep done. 
Today i would like you to meet Viviana and her great nail polish & art related blog: Nailart-addict

For the Grimm’s Fairy Tale series here on my blog, Viviana came up with a {Puss in Boots} design, so hope you enjoy. I bet everyone knows this wonderful tale from the seventeenth century, about a cat who uses trickery and deceit to gain power, wealth, and the hand of a princess in marriage for his penniless and low-born master. 

Hi all, how are you doing… are you ready for a little fairy tale? I am Viviana from the Netherlands a bit of a crazy blogger with an addiction for Nailart… does it ring a bell? 😉

When Luchessa asked me a while ago to do a guest post I was really trilled. I felt honored and a little bit nervous at the same time. But as I start thinking about it I really got in to the mood. A fairytale figure … hmm what shall I do… And soon Puss in Boots crossed my mind.

Now I needed an inspiration source an example. So I looked on Google and found a color plate. Yes perfect for me. Because I only wanted the shape of Puss in Boots so I could add my own part e to it.

Normally I paint all my nails with an image, but as I have a tremendous tremor at the moment I did one nail. And made a picture of each single step so you can see how Puss in Boots came to life on my nail.

I used acrylic paints for Puss in Boots instead of nail polish. The advantage of acrylic paint is that you can always easy correct mistakes.

When I finished I applied a layer of topcoat to seal and smoothen Puss in Boots.

I hope you enjoyed Puss in Boots. Remember to live your dream.



So what do you think, my Beauties? Isn’t that just the funniest mustache? Totally cute. I really liked the big cat eyes – they turned out so very expressive. Please visit Vivianas Blog for more nail polish swatches and designs or chat with her on Twitter.
