Checkered French Tips

My nail design for today is based on a shoe I had when I was a kid. It was a checkered ballerina shoe with 2 cherries in the front. Unfortunately I have no pictures of the shoe, just vague memories. But here's my attempt of recreating the design:


For the base I used 2 coats of OPI No Bees Please. Then I used scotch tape for the white tips and applied one coat of Misa Heaven White. I stamped with China Glaze Up All Night and added the fimo cherries. 

I'm still kinda clumsy with stamping, but from a distance you don't really see the imperfections. ;-)
