Hello everyone! Well, here we are at the end of the month, so you know the drill by now - I've got my Nail Challenge Collaborative looks for you - better late than never, as usual! :)
This month's theme was animals and I was super excited about that! The only problem was narrowing down which 4 animals I wanted to recreate, there were so many ideas floating around in my head.
I decided to start off this theme with something simple, an animal that is very close to my heart - black cats! I am a proud crazy cat lady and I have a beautiful black kitty named Trixie, so I was excited to recreate her likeness on my nails! :)
I saw a mani like his on a Google search, but it was MUCH more realistic and I wasn't sure I could do that, so I chose to make my little peeking kittens a bit more cartoonish. I think they turned out really cute! I had the hardest time trying to find a color that matched Trixie's eyes, so I ended up going with OPI Just Spotted the Lizard, because even though Trixie's eyes are gold, they have green rings in the middle, so I figured Just Spotted the Lizard was a fun mix of the two!
I painted on the black cat tips over base coated nails, but the accent color I chose almost matched my naked nail color, so you can't tell lol! I used Loreal Doutzen's Nude for the accent, which is one of the polishes I got the other week at Rite Aid on clearance for 1.49! I loved these neutral shades, they're perfect for work.
What do you think of my black cat nails? I thought they were super cute, and reminded me of Trixie every time I looked at them at work! :)
