Cats in print, inspired by Start Spreading the Mews ModCloth dress

Hey everyone.  I had every intention of post this mani last night, but completely unlike me, I fell asleep on the sofa whilst I was cuddling the kids before bed.  My husband put the kids to bed, and woke me enough to go to bed too.  I was fast asleep in bed by 8.30pm - on a Saturday night!  And what's more, I slept through until 8.30am too!  12 glorious hours of uninterrupted sleep. It was so awesome!  But of course it meant I didn't post any nails to my blog, or paint any new design at night.  A small price to pay for such awesome sleep!

Ok, lets look at these cute nails I did to match another ModCloth dress.  This gorgeous dress is call Start Spreading the Mews and it's covered in news print.  But what makes this so cute is that all the news articles and photos are of cats.

For the mani, I used the Lorem Ipsum text from Vivid Lacquer plate VL004.  I paired that stamping up with some cats from Konad Plate M91.  I love black and white nails, and this combo of cats and print is especially cute.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. That's just too cute and totally appropriate too.

  2. Wow that's a good sleep! I'm envious of such a good sleep lol!

    Great dress and what wonderful nails to go with it :-)

  3. Cute mani. I love the simplicity of black and white and the cats are adorable with the newsprint.

  4. That dress is fabulous!! I saw it on someone just the other day. and those nails are a perfect match! Love it!

  5. This is adorable hun! Congrats on the rest too :) Sometimes an uninterrupted sleep is worth so much more than words can ever tell!

  6. I love that VL plate! Your manicure turned out awesome... and it reminded me that I need to finally buy that dress! I've had it in my Modcloth cart forever, but I keep putting it off, haha!

  7. This is really goregous =). I'd really love to make myself a manicure like this, but first I have to buy newspaper print image plate somewhere =)
