On my pinkie you see Takkie the dog, next to it there's Jip, then we have Siepie the cat and last there's Janneke. Maybe you've seen them already because not only is the book Jip & Janneke translated in a few foreign languages, also the Dutch company Hema has released a limited edition collection of these four figures - you might have seen the nail polish that was a part from this collection.
See, matchy matchy isn't it? This make up bag is one thing I scored out of the cute Hema collection. Jip & Janneke is one of my happy childhood memories and I truly love Fiep's drawings and Annie's stories. If you ever stumble across this book you should definitely have a peek in it!
For this manicure I used Diamond Cosmetics I'm Raven About You as my base colour and H&M Love at First Sight for the characters. I drew them by hand with a striper brush. In the picture above I've mattified it with China Glaze Matte Magic. Also, since I've been getting questions about the treatments I use: my base is NailTek Foundation II and I use the China Glaze Fast Forward top coat.
