The Digit-al Does Inspires Each Other, Day 5: Kitties and Puppies with Beauty Big Bang XL-008

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)


Today's the last day of The Digit-al Dozen's inspire-each-other week, and I'm bummed--this has been so much fun, not only to do my own recreations, but to see how the other ladies have inspired one another. I'm sorry to see it end.

So, I decided to go out with a bang! You'll see what I mean...

First, let's talk about who inspired me for this mani. I absolutely fell in love with this manicure by Nails Like Lace:

I fully intend to buy that plate, but for now I don't have it...luckily, I have another one with very cute cat images on it...Beauty Big Bang XL-008. Here's the video review I did of the plate:

And here's a still shot:

I did three quick sample looks in the video:

(Please excuse the fuzz on the third swatch stick--I hit it with my acetone-covered cotton by accident. It was not my best moment.)

I also did two full manis...first let's take a look at the one inspired by Nails Like Lace. As you know, I have both cats and a dog, so I decided to modify the mani a little bit to include dogs. Since my cats completely own my dog, I thought I'd use a dog pattern in the background, with little kitties popping out on top of it. I started with a base of Spellbound Nails Marauder's Map, and then stamped with Kaleidoscope St-01 Black. I did my kitties with reversed stamping; I used Messy Mansion Summer Heat and Bisque, Moyra Sp-08 Silver, and Kaleidoscope St-02 White. Here's how it turned out:

So it's a little bit different, but I think I captured the spirit of the inspiration...what do you think?

For my second manicure, I started with a skittle of Zoya Karen and Sally Hansen Get Mod and Blacky O. Then I stamped my images with Hit The Bottle Polish Moonshine, Taupe-lessly Devoted and Make Mine A Mudslide (also available at Lantern & Wren):

What do you think? Those kitty paws just kill me!
