Digit-al Dozen, Books; Day 3

This is quite a change from the last post!  From blood and gore to sweet and fluffy!

My mani is based upon a book of nursery rhymes that I used to read to my three kids when they were little including the rhyme Mary Had a Little Lamb.  Unfortunately, my kids aren't that little anymore and its been a while since I read from the book so I couldn't locate it readily so I'm using this image from Usborne Books at Home.

Started with a base of two coats of Zoya Shelby (pink) and one of the OPI Liquid Sands, Solitaire; no topcoat.

Stamped using Cheeky Jumbo 9, Wild at Heart and Chez Xmas 001 (accent) using black Konad special polish.

Added a few random dots.

Topped with SV.

In hindsight, once I did the topcoat, I wish I didn't topcoat OPI Solitaire to keep it more grainy-like/rough to mimic the look of the texture of wool, but hindsight is wonderful, and I'll keep it in mind if I ever decide to do a sheep/lamb mani again!  (I'm guessing this mani would be good for Little Bo Peep, too!)

Here's the other ladies Day 3 mani's!

Thanks for looking!
