Curious Puppy Prints...

I often get the urge to try a gradient with similar colors within a collection. Just as often it doesn't work out as I imagined since the colors are too similar. Such was the case with Color Club Incognito and Give Me a Hint. Give Me a Hint turned out to be too light and sheer to create a nice gradient. Rather than give up and start over, I added Barielle Tight Knit into the mix to darken up the tip of the gradient.

The puppy and the paw prints were stamped using Barielle Unraveled Rust and Shany plate SH08. The puppy was just what I need to cheer me up. He is so cute. What shall we name him? ;)

I would love know what you think of this!
Do you ever create a silly manicure just to cheer yourself up?

Thanks for looking!
Anutka :)


  1. This is so cute! I love these colors.

  2. Awwww... I love this, so cute!! I'm not very creative, but I do wear fun colors to cheer myself up.

  3. awwww i LOVE this mani! what a cute puppy!! :)

  4. This is so playful and cute. I have a question for you - is there a trick to being able to line up where you transfer your stamping image? When I try it's never centered on my nail!

  5. Классный маникюр!) Особенно понравился песик - такой милый:)))

  6. Oh my gosh this is perfectly cute! the gradient is delicious!!!!

    I have done some lift-me up manicures. I like how this is fun and playful and yet has that "i can wear this out and wear it proud" look to it :D

  7. Bruno! He's adorable and the nail colors are quite pretty, nice job. Your nails don't look "ruff" at all ;)

  8. This is so cute! I love the subtle earth-toned gradient with the puppy. Great idea!

  9. That's adorable!! I love the gradient, it's perfect. And I needed some cheering up today, so thank you for coming up something this cute! :)

    @Amoki, I'm not sure of a sure way. Sometime I redo the nails when they don't align right. I often have the stamp facing me so I can see the edge of my nail when I align...
