Dog nail transfers from Hello Harriet

March 6, 2016Hels

Combining two of my favourite things – nail art and dogs with these Hello Harriet dog nail transfers…

One thing I love doing is painting my nails – I used to spend hours doing really intricate designs, but unfortunately I don’t have as much time to do that anymore. Since finding out I’m pregnant, I’ve also been a bit anxious about using nail varnish too much as the fumes aren’t great, but after a bit of research, I’ve found that so long as the nail varnish doesn’t contain dibutyl phthalate, and you don’t do them too often, it’s okay.

Another thing I love, is my dog, Freddie the Frenchie, and when my lovely friend Hannah (AKA utensils0) sent me a link with some adorable dog nail transfers from Hello Harriet that included a French bulldog image, I had to try them out.

One of my favourite nail varnishes is my Formula X in ‘Thrilling’ polish and it doesn’t contain dibutyl phthalate – yay! I used this as the base colour as I wanted a light, neutral colour to show the dogs off.
