Sheep Nails for Nail Art Sunday - swatches and mini tutorial

Today's theme for this Nail Art Sunday is "Promises". A quite difficult theme but fortunately Lela allows most nail arts if you have a good motivation for your choice of motive ;)
So for this week I have chosen to do sheep nails! :) As you can see I've done one black sheep amongst the white ones and, as we all know, the black sheep is bad at keeping it's promises... ;)

I've used the following polishes:
(from left to right)
China Glaze Recycle
Rimmel Portobello Road
Barry M Matte White
Illamasqua Boosh
Ciaté Headliner as base polish (not included in the picture above)

You also need a thin brush and dotting tools.

How to do these Sheep Nails:
Apply the base polish.
Do the legs of the sheep with a thin brush.
Do a ring of big white dots and fill it with white polish.
Do the eyes with the dotting tools.
Do the ears and the nose with a thin brush.
Seal the mani with a top coat. Done! :)

What do you think of my sheep nails? :)
Is my motivation for today's theme approved...? ;)
