what's with the cattitude? + tape mani

Good afternooooooon, followers. All 870 of you (and more I'm sure who don't follow via GFC.) I can't believe so many people have joined my blog. I love each and every one of you! Thank you!
1000 will be coming up soon, I guess I have to start planning another giveaway! Haha.
In the meantime though, have you entered my current giveaway? It ends tomorrow night!!
And remember, all people who like my facebook get another entry ;)

On to today's post.
I've been doing so many swatches lately for my project that I have been neglecting my nail art posts. To be honest, I haven't had much inspiration lately and I am guilty of just wearing plain colors with no art almost all the time this past month.
I'm going to try to get back into the habit of nail art though, because I really hate that I've lost the drive to do it.

So the art I'm going to show you today is simple but I really liked wearing it.
Sadly the pictures don't really do it justice!


The pretty middle polish just didn't want to show up nicely so I took some photos from strange angles and with strange lights to try and capture it.


To create this "funky french" I added a piece of tape to a day-old manicure of OPI's What's With The Cattitude? and then painted on the second color, which is Essence's Choose Me!


And then I very carefully freehanded the black tip with Wet N Wild Black Creme.


This was so fun to wear, and I didn't want to take it off.
I really like this tip, it's like... a check mark, or something. I don't know what to call it.


And that's What's With The Cattitude? on it's own.
I wanted this polish for a long time and finally found it, only to realize that it is an exact dupe of China Glaze's Bahamian Blues.

So I really didn't need WWTC, especially considering BB is almost a one coater and WWTC takes 3.

Not to mention that WWTC was one of only THREE polishes I have bought for myself in June, so it was a bummer that one of the few polishes I let myself buy ended up being unnecessary.
Oh well. My Bahamian Blues is a mini so I guess I can deal with having a dupe :P

I was going to go work out after I finished this post but my lunch kinda made me feel sick, so I'm going to do some nail art instead. :)
Have a lovely day! See you tomorrow with some European polish swatch spam!

  9. I'm so jealous of your originality! The best I can ever do is copy what someone else has done! Lol

  11. Oooh great design!! Love the colours together. You probably didn't really need WWTC, but sometimes it's worth buying opi just for their brush! Love the application with it! :)
