Throwback Thursday - Kitty Cat Water Decals Mani

16 comments

Hiya guys! So I thought I'd start a Throwback Thursday segment where I go back and recreate a mani from the past. It can be any time from like two years to two months ago. Anything goes! The catch is I will be creating a video tutorial to go along with the recreation. So back in the first week of November I created this mani for my dear friend Heather from Heather's Hues as part of a birthday collaboration. Back when I created this mani I was very sick and so I couldn't make a video. Since the mani got so many compliments and I realized I had leftover decals I decided it'd be a good time for a redo.


Confession time, in real life I actually am much more of a dog person than a cat. But when it comes to nail world I always tend to gravitate towards cat decals every time. I think it's something about the anime-ish kind of style that appeals to me. Maybe I just haven't found the right doggie ones, any suggestions on that? Well let's get to the how-to!


Time for a total Rose moment... I actually don't know where these are from. I have looked through order historys and email threads galore and nada! I'm thinking either these were a gift from a company or I purchased them from somewhere. Of course, I didn't want to post about something no longer attainable so I did some searching and found these on eBay! They're coming from overseas so that means it'll take a long time to arrive in the states, but for under a dollar a package I think it's worth it.


For this mani I decided that these kitties needed to be in space in a really acid-trip kind of way, haha. I know I was inspired by a mani I saw a really long time ago, but I don't remember who it was. If you do please let me know, I'd love to give credit where it is due.

Now here's a break down on what I used to accomplish this mani:
  • Zoya: Serenity
  • Lime Crime: Lavendairy, Milky Ways, Parfait Day
  • Cat decals from somewhere... maybe eBay
  • Ellagee Lickity Split Latex Mani Mask
  • Top Coat: Matte from Butter London

And there is a video on how to create this mani! Yes, let's put all the cats in a pastel galaxy together!

Please don't forget to give me a thumbs up and subscribe!

It's no secret that I absolutely adore working with decals. Most of my decals tend to come from Born Pretty Store, but I will also be showing some from Lady Queen in the upcoming week. I just think decals can make really jazz up a simple technique. In this case I love how this mani turned out! It's cute, fun, and most importantly pretty easy to accomplish.


I hope you guys like it as much as I do. Thanks for reading and I'll see you all tomorrow with more nail designs to share.
