ABC Nail Challenge: Letter X

Today's letter for the ABC Nail Challenge has had me racking my brain since we started this challenge and last week it came to me in a flash 'X' Marks the Spot! Now the vision I had in my head looked like one of those old treasure maps that you would see in moves with the little dashed black line leading to an X. I tried my best to transfer my vision to my nails. Not the best but I kinda like it. For my base I used NYC Mulberry Street, black cream for the dashes and Hot Hot Heat from Sinful Colors for my X. The little rhinestone I got in a set from Avon.

I love to take pictures so I thought I would share a picture of a cute little visitor that keeps coming around my house. A cute little groundhog :)

Be sure to stop by and see what all the ladies did for the letter X!

  4. LOLOL. It really DOES look like a map! Very clever, Amy. You nailed that X!

    Sounds like the groundhog may have adopted you. You might have to start thinking of a suitable name.

  7. The map idea is so original! Maybe it doesn't fully convince you because the base colour is too light? I figure a map to be a dark brown or something like mud-colour!

    1. I think that may be what it is. May have to give this look another try with a darker base :)
