I initially coated my nails with a plain simple colour and then topped that with a shiny topcoat but as the week went on I found that this was too plain and so I wanted to add a little something to a couple of nails to add detail. And so I chose to create a simple cat motif that was achievable with a couple of brushes and a small dotting tool.
I started by painting a semi circle shape on the end of my nail, I did this with the white nail polish brush itself, but can also be done with a striper brush. I just found when I attempted this too much polish was on the end of my nail. I then took the small paint brush and added white polish to it and created two triangles on top of the semi circle.
These triangles were then filled in with the white polish and a smaller triangle was painted with the pink polish, using the small dotting tool.
Next on to the eyes, these can be done in any colour you want really. I chose blue to go with the base polish I had done earlier that week. With this polish I put some onto a small paint brush and pushed the point down onto the nail, gently, to create a circle shape. This isn't a perfect way to do it so a dotting tool or something bigger would be better, but I didn't have anything the right diameter. So I ended up with two different sized eyes, but hey, it just makes the cat cuter, right?
