Freehand Gingerbread Men and Polka Dot Nails

Allo polish Pals!
How are you doing today? Do you have any fancy weekend plans?
Today I have a manicure that I never ever want to see again. I did this manicure 4 times over. Every time it just wasn't right, it is so far from the original idea behind it but I am glad to say I like this version enough to post. If you are really curious you can see version 1 and version 2. Pretty ugleh. I don't even know where version 3 went...Ha...ha... Being this stringent with just about everything gets really tiring sometimes.

For this manicure I began with three very thin coats of Catrice's 'The Bride Takes It All' and once dry I added some polka dots using Barry M's 'Gold Foil' and then added my Catrice 'Gel Effect' top coat which dries super fast and smoothly. Once all this was dry I began to paint my gingerbread men with acrylic paint and my favorite brushes. I finished off with my Barry M 'Matte' top coat.

I don't even know what happened to the third version, Haha! I guess it was thrown to the photo abyss, the black hole were all the rejects go..

Its a little scruffy but as I said... I'm so glad to put this manicure behind me. I know that seems stupid since it looks so simple!

Have you had foodie nails before, what food was it? What do you think of my gingerbread men?
Have a lovely day!
