Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Gunmetal, Essie Red Nouveau, Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen White

Red Checkered Tablecloths:
  • 2 coats Red Nouveau. Let Dry
  • Vertical and Horizontal lines with White Nail Art Pen. Let Dry.
  • Fill in every other square with White Nail Art Pen. Let Dry.
  •  Dab Tokyo Pearl over White Squares. Let Dry.
  •  Clear Top coat.

O.P.I. What's With The Cattitude?, Ogre The Top Blue

Blue Plates:

  • With medium size dotting tool, make dots with Ogre The Top Blue. Start in the center of nail with first dot, then apply dots all around to make a full, round shape. Let Dry.
  •  With White nail pen, and Gunmetal, (using a small dotting tool) make shading and open circles in plates to mimic depth.
  • Use What's With The Cattitude, Gunmetal, and dotting tool to make 5¢ on nails.

It's really hard to make something look 3-D when it's curved around a nail, and I'm not artistic.
The Fimo Slices that spurred this nail art. Sausages and Eggs Fimo Slices.

Fimo Slices:
  • Once everything is dry, apply clear top coat. 
  • Dab clear top coat on area for fimo slice. 
  • Dip dotter into dab on nail, then tap dotter onto fimo slice.
  • Place fimo slice on nail. Cover with clear top coat.
  • If Fimo curls, add more clear top coat and hold down with dotter or finger.
