Cute piglet nail art

How to make "Piglet" with acrylic l&p and paint *l&p=liquid and powder*

As I was bathing my two kids, I took a washcloth from the shelf and looked at it, and I had the bright idea to make it into a nail art design.

So first, take any pink acrylic colored powder that you have that comes close to Piglet's body and start forming your free edge.
I used a neon pink powder and a neon glitter that I mixed with clear powder.
The one on the left is the neon pink powder, and the one on the right is the neon glitter.

Then encapsulate with clear acrylic, and when that is fully dry, file and buff your nail to the desired shape.
With black acrylic paint and a dotting tool, I formed Piglet's eyes, eyebrows and mouth.
With China Glaze's "Pool Party" I made his little cheecks.

Then I mixed a purple acrylic paint with white, to make lighter shade of purple for the stripes on Piglet's belly.
I let that dry completely and put a coat of NSI Glaze 'n Go on it and let it cure for about 2-3 minutes.

Next time I'll try and remember to take pictures in between so I can give you a better step by step, but I think you know what I'm talking about when you see the video.
