I was looking for inspiration the other day. You can get ideas from pretty much anything. My inspiration for this mani was my cat. She is a pest most of the time, but she sure is cute. Seriously, she is one of the sweetest looking cats I’ve ever seen, but don’t let her fool you. She doesn’t shy away from a fight. Just last week she scratched and bit the neighbor kid when he crawled under our car after her. Poor kid.
She is a calico and for this design, I mimicked her colors. I haven’t done a splatter for a while. I probably should’ve taped off my fingers. I forgot how messy they get. I found this to be harder to clean up than a water marble.
I started with a white base, just like kitty. Then with my straw, splatted on China Glaze Liquid Leather. To get my butterscotchy orange color, I mixed four different polishes; two oranges and two browns. I added some Sinful Colors Snow me White, then went through with the black again. I think the black was the reason clean up was such a pain. Getting black polish out of your cuticles can be difficult.
I wasn’t in love with this manicure until I put a top coat on it. A glossy top coat can make all the difference in the world. I’m loving this one and might just wear it for a few days.
