Hiya guys! How's it going? I'm back today with another nail art challenge mani! If you guys aren't part of any nail art challenges, I really suggest you find some. It's so much fun to share your creations, make some friends, and most of all push yourself into doing new things. There is a huge challenge coming up next month created by the fabulous Chalkboard Nails, definitely check it out if it's something you're interested in. Anyway I almost skipped over this challenge, but I told myself even if I did something simple I had to do it. This week's prompt in the Freehand Nail Art Challenge is 'Animal' and I choose to create a kitty cat mani.
What do you think?
I wish I could of done a more realistic type of kitty mani, but I honestly didn't have too much time on my hands. Extremely detailed nail art takes me over two hours at the very least. To be perfectly honest, I didn't think I would have been able to do it well either. Even though I have been doing nails and improving, I still lack a lot of confidence when it comes to detailed manis. Hence why I have fallen behind in the Disney heroes vs villains challenge. Anyway enough with the pity party over here, let's talk about this mani meow. See what I did there? Yeah? No? Okay whatever, here's another shot:
As soon as I decided that I wanted to do kitty nails I knew I had to use a mustard yellow base color. Luckily for me I remembered I had Catrina by Julep, which I swatched a few months ago. Woot. It's the perfect shade for this mani! All other details were hand-painted with acrylic paints and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
I hope you all like my little kitty cats and here's hoping I do well in the next and final challenge for the month (for this group).
