I have so many exciting things coming up over the next couple of weeks... Nail art I'm super pumped to share with you, a look at my first stamping mat, a review of Born Pretty's clear stamper, a review of a tea subscription box... Lots of awesome things!
Today we have a look at a nail art design I original identified as a "nail fail" and which I didn't intend to ever actually share with you... But taking another look at it I decided it wasn't nearly as bad as I had convinced myself it was, and that it was actually pretty cute!
Okay! So how did I get this look? Well, I started off with a base of OPI Small + Cute = ♥ (don't you just love that name?!) and then did a quick dry brush with OPI Charmmy & Sugar, and when that was dry I stamped my cute coordinating kitties with Konad White Stamping Polish and MoYou London Enchanted Plate 13. A layer of top coat and some gems and it was done!
Let's look at some close-ups of those stamped kitties now!
|I have named this one Trevor and imagine he has fallen off the garden wall. Damnit, Trevor!|
|And this is Muffy. Because she looks like a Muffy to me. Cat names don't need justifications!|
The reason I feel like this mani was a bit of a fail was because my stamping designs and colors don't really allow the images to pop, the dry brush with the glitter is a bit too much and takes away from the design, and I really think the pink gems were a bit of a mistake... But it's still a cute mistake, so that's okay. :) Kitties make everything better, and who doesn't like kitties?!
Let me know what you think! Thanks for visiting! xx
