The Digit-al Dozen Does Animal Week - Trouble with Tribbles


And I'm back with an awesome week of animals for The Digit-al Dozen! Sa-weet! For my week I decided to create manis around fantasy/made-up/make believe animals! (Then they don't have to be so realistic, which my artistic ability doesn't really allow!)  Hee-hee! And there are a few this week that are my best nail art ever! (Today's? Not so much! Hahahaha!)  :)

Today we have a classic animal/creature from the original Star Trek, Tribbles. These cute furry little guys are know for increasing in number very rapidly.


A picture of Captain Kirk and a pile of Tribbles.


For my base for three nails I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (two coats). On my ring finger I used OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know as my base. With the second coat I dipped my finger into brown flocking powder to create the Tribble fur. For the tan and brown spots I used acrylic paints and the brown flocking powder.


Don't forget to check out the other ladies and their animal nails!
