Shocked Black Cat Nails

This has been a long time coming, naturally! I was inspired by Simply Rins – and I didn’t do her design justice at ALL! I really tried but drawing on my tiny nails is so hard. I wanted to take a picture of these anyway because I know if I keep practicing, it will only get better next time.

Shocked Black Cats

First I painted on the base coat and put a regular top coat – that was my first mistake. Since this Salon Perfect glitter “Shocked” is a mix of pink and blue micro-glitters, it has a really textured surface that isn’t good for nail art at all. When I do this again I will make sure I use a thick coat of Seche Vite before drawing.

Shocked Black Cats

To draw the cats I first used a detail brush to make two little triangles for the ears. Then I grabbed a medium sized dotting tool and drew ovals for the heads. I switched back to the detail brush to draw the whiskers and the neck then waited for that to dry.

Last I drew the eyes – first I used the same medium dotting tool and made two green dots on each cat head. After that dried I attempted to make a little kitty pupil with the detail brush dipped in black one last time.

Salon Perfect Neon Collision Polishes

Okay, so I really wish I hadn’t looked up the polish line for this base polish I used here, because now I MUST HAVE THEM ALL! These polishes are 100% micro-dot glitters in a clear base. I currently have only two of them, Kaboom and Shocked. I have always looked suspecting that there were others, but never saw them. I found these at Walmart, but I hardly see them anymore.

The complete line:

  • Bang – Orange and yellow (more golden)
  • Exploaded – Orange and yellow (more pinkish)
  • Jolt – Yellow and orange (more yellow)
  • Kaboom – Teal and lime green (more teal)
  • Shocked – Pink and blue (used here)
  • Zapped – Lime green and blue (more lime)

    • Hi Bella!

      Thank you so, so much for this comment. I actually wasn’t posting much because of all those issues, but also I was working on a brand new website for a few months for my roller derby league, and it took up ALL my extra time. I’m back now and so excited for all my plans for the future of this blog.

      Thank you so much for your support!
