Kitten Themed Mani

I did this mani a few day ago using (mainly) the new SdP image plates** I got recently. I did a dog theme mani a while back here; and thought I'd try a cat themed mani as there were some cute cat images on these plates. Here's what I came up with.

I wasn't aware when I first did this mani that this is Chococat from Hello Kitty until a few gals pointed it out from MUA. I just thought I was using the cute cat image! LOL!

Here's mani in progress, base coat polish starting from thumb and then left to right is Illamasqua Boosh (one coat), OPI Bride's Bouquet (2 coats) and CND Raspberry Parfait (2 coats) is the pink accent polish.

Then stamped with Big SdP D, SdP 2 and 32, using Konad black and white special polishes.

Lastly, added a few random dots here and there using the same polishes as the base. Topped with SV.

I got a lot of compliments on this from ladies who thought it was super cute...the ladies at the bank, the DMV when I went to renew my license plate and the grocery store. A couple gals thought my mani was from stickers and so spent a few minutes showing them the basics of stamping as I happen to have a IP in my purse that I had picked up from some other gals. (I'm sure they think I'm crazy, but I had to share!)

I've been wearing this mani since Tuesday night and its still going strong! I do want to point out that some of these stamping images are a little blurry which is my fault. I did this mani in the wee hours of the morning after a 12 hour day and just wasn't that careful putting the stamp down and kinda smudged them as I was stamping. I was so blurry eyed at the time, I just thought my eyes were blurry not the stamping but in fact, they are a little blurred. I've used the same Big SdP stamp before and it was perfect; this was me and my tiredness. In real life, its not as obvious; only when taking macro shots of your nails!

Have a great weekend and thanks for looking!!
