It's the 13th today, but not a Friday, but lets just pretend it is because I have the perfect Friday 13th mani for you today - lots of black cats crossing your path.
I got a new Lily Anna stamping plate a few weeks ago (Lily Anna 11) and it has a row of cute little cats silhouettes in various positions - walking, sitting, and facing different directions. The images really reminded me of cat images I printed out as decals a few years ago for a Halloween mani, albeit much bigger images and they inspired me to do another kitty mani.
I started with a pale gradient base using Picture Polish swagger, sky and mellow yellow. I then stamped the kitties on to my nails. I then realised they looked a bit funny just floating there in space so I had to add some ground for them to stand and sit on - which then lead me to creating a framed mani.
I've seen some framed manis on Instagram and those girls manage to have the thinnest and neatest lines around the frame. I don't know how they do it. I've tried fine long striping brushes and short fine detail brushes, but I can't seem to work out how to get them smooth and neat, so you'll just have to put up with these wonky and wobbly ones :).
I'm sure you'll also notice my misplacement of one little kitty on my middle finger. He's just too high up in the air. Shall we just pretend he is mid-pounce or something?
Here is the Lily Anna plate 11, you can see the collection of little kitties along the bottom. Lily Anna Plates are available from Messy Mansion and they ship world wide.
