Something Special for a dog who was special! ❤

Hello! So this is a very different post and something that I have never done before and that is some nail art/nail designs.  When it comes to painting my nails I am very impatient and very messy. I am not very artistic or even good at art/drawing/painting but I decided to give it a try because today is a sad day for me and my mum and dad because today's date February 15th our lovely dog Lucy died on this date in 2011. Lucy was not just a pet, she was part of the family, part of my life and she was my best friend/baby! Cancer took her from us but she was a strong dog and hung on for as long as she could. I like to think of it that an angel joined the heaven 3 years ago on this date because Lucy was an angel. Anyway I wanted to do something special for her so I decided to have a go at some nail design. My mum has an amazing talent at nail art so she was over the moon when I was having a try at it. It sparked something off in me when I was doing these nails, I got hooked and wanted to keep doing some nail designs so my mum is teaching me and I will be doing some nail art/design posts. Here is what nail design I did for Lucy...

They are very girly and very cute! For my first ever go I thought it looks very nice! here is what I used...

Firstly I used Maybelline forever strong pro polish in the colour Porcelain Pink on all of the nails. I did a couple of coats because I didn't want the pink to look washed out or to light. 
After that dried I then put the Barry M nail paint limited edition in the colour E 334 over the pink on the four nails ( not the thumb) 
On the thumb I draw a paw print with a black marker pen and then put the Barry M glitter on the tip. 
I then finished with a clear top coat and that is how I did it. Very simple and easy but looks very cute and girly!

So there is the nails I done in memory of my lovely dog Lucy Simpson, I miss her so much but I know she is in a happier and free of pain place, watching and looking down on me!
