Nail art - Paw prints in the sand

I think this is probably my favourite out of the nail art looks I've created so far and I was disappointed when I had to remove this for filming.  I currently have blue nails to match a dress I'm wearing for a fancy dinner on Saturday night but once I've removed the blue I'll definitely be trying this one out again.  

The inspiration for this came from a couple of pictures of cats paws I've recently posted on Instagram (you can find my Instagram account here).  My boyfriend's dad's cat has amazing paws with different coloured pads, which I might try and recreate next time if I have the right kind of pink.  Looking at my paw pics on Instagram I've just realised that cats paws have four outer pads rather than three, oops!

I wanted a quite neutral colour for the base colour for this design but as I'm really not a fan of nude shades in lipstick or nail varnish the closest I had was OPI's Sand In My Suit, which then gave me the inspiration for the name of this design.  I applied two coats of Sand In My Suit and then as usual sealed the base colour with a layer of Seche Vite before decorating.  I then used one of my largest size dotting tool's and Bad Apple's Bad Bad and made three overlapping dots to make the main paw pad and then a slightly smaller dotting tool for dots for the outer paw pads.  I then sealed the whole design with another coat of Seche Vite.

What do you think of my latest design?
