Get Your Kitty On

Get Your Kitty On 01


A favourite manicure of many is the tiger print. It comes in several forms: stamps, decals, manually painted, and so forth. Now, I could have painted the tiger stripes by hand – and I admit, it would have been a fun challenge – but I had purchased a Konad plate featuring the print, so I figured:

May as well use it.

A while back I bought some el-cheapo polishes – my experience with the first of the polishes, a beautiful deep red, was great, but prone to smudging. This colour, however, was perfect. It went on smoothly, and has this almost iridescent shine to it.

But I wanted some extra depth to the colour, so I added a narrow(ish) strip of a light, translucent gold (Revlon’s Gold Get ‘Em) down the middle. I don’t think you can really see it in the pics, but it gives the illusion of depth. The sides of the nails are slightly darker, giving it light and shadow.

And then we come to the final touch: the black stripes. As previously mentioned, I simply utilised the Konad stamp with the tiger stripes. I had a little trouble with the lining up on the first finger (my thumb), and on some of the longer nails on my right hand.

I probably should have attempted this nail art while my nails were shorter, but ah well. Still looks awesome to me.
