Lucky for me, I didn't need to be a tiger expert to wear some tiger nails.
Let's start with a swatch of my base. This is Color Club's Sparkle and Soar, a super sparkly orange glass fleck polish with a strong gold shimmer (3 coats).
After seeing Foxy Mary's World's tiger nails I wanted to do something similar. She has a YouTube video showing how she made decals for all her nails. While hers are definitely beautiful, I was too short on time to make that many decals so I only decaled my accent nail.
I also used Dashica Infinity plate -12, with Mundo de Unas black polish for stamping. On all but my accent nail, I just sponged/painted a bit white polish on the ends and then stamped on the stripes.
As a bonus, I used this image a couple months ago over Pretty Serious Morning Java to match a scarf I was wearing in a costume for one of my ultimate frisbee games. I thought I could share it here too.
I suppose this post is the most suiting to my blog name. It was definitely inspired by someone else's beautiful artwork and tigers are cats with claws. It's funny that my name has a cat reference since I'm not a cat person (I've never met one I'm not allergic to) but I like the coincidence here.
Enjoy your Sunday!
'Til next time...
