Then and Now: Week 10

They're back! The then and now posts have returned! Have you missed them? I know from reading the giveaway comments that a few of you have. These nails were done about 2 weeks ago, maybe even longer, but the past couple of saturdays I've just been too busy to post them, but they should return to being weekly now. This is a design that I remember doing, and remember removing straight away to try another design (which I'm sure will make an appearance at some point), something I'd never done before and something I never did again until I starting painting more regularly (aka now) because I didn't much like 'wasting' nail varnish. As you'll see, the design was also pretty rubbish so it was no big loss to the world that they didn't last very long!

I'm sure many of you will know that this design isn't original, but as with all of these posts, I can't remember where I got the original inspiration from, so for now I cannot give credit, but if you know who originally created these then please let me know. The original picture is after the jump!

As you can tell, I was a true natural at nail art, and I really knew how to make my photos look great! (I hope you can hear my sarcasm right here). 

In the original post, and now, I used Barry M - Matt white as the base, the only white I'd ever used until I chanced upon a bottle of Essie - Blanc in TKmaxx a few weeks ago. The black was probably previously Barry M - Black, but I can't tell you any more than that, except that it was all done with dotting tools, as were all my previous designs. This time the black was China Glaze - Liquid Leather for the spots (is that what they're called?) and the cow was done with acrylic paint, all topped off with a coat (or possibly two I cant remember) of Seche Vite. 

As you can see, I completely changed the cow, mainly because it previously looked nothing like a cow!

What do you think? Let me know in the comments, I always love hearing what you have to say!
