Recently I’ve been addicted to the kitty collecting game called Neko Atsume. I just completed my cat book album with the elusive Frosty
All of the cats in the game are very cute, with names like Sunny, Mrs Fortune, Lady Meow Meow (apparently is supposed to resemble Anna Wintour), Guy Furry (Guy Fury? hah!) etc. The art is adorable and I just had to have them on my nails.
From my thumb to pinkie: Tubbs, Willie, Guy Furry, Mrs Fortune, and Sunny in a cake box.
Sorry for the hiatus! Rathy and I had to put Petite on hold for a little bit to catch up in our personal lives. We’re hoping to start posting more regularly again. :-) Thank you for bearing with us!
Here is a simple nail art look inspired by the Scentbird product! :-)
Scentbird recently sent us a complimentary perfume from their perfume subscription service. For $14.95 a month, Scentbird sends a packaged sample of perfume of your choosing or one recommended by their system. The size is perfect travel size (though I’m not positive if it’s under 3 fl oz, the packaging seems about the same size as some of my travel-sized shampoo containers and those are under 3 fl oz.) It’s an interesting idea for those that want to try new scents without having to buy the whole bottle. Personally I really like the perfume bottle designs, sometimes that might be the only reason I get a bottle of perfume :x
Monroe is a lovely deep burgundy scatter holo jelly. It is opaque in 2-3 coats, and dries shiny and flat! The swatch photos below are without a layer of top coat! This is not a glitter polish either, so it’s super easy to remove as well.
This is the second look of our wedding nail art set for Julep!
When I think of something new, I think of something that is more bold and non-traditional for a wedding manicure. I came across a really classy modern wedding cake and it reminded me of just that. I decided to recreate design as a manicure.
I painted each layer of the cake design on a different nail using a black, white, and gold color scheme. On my thumb is a hand-painted gold rose/floral pattern on white, on my index and pinky fingers is a black lattice pattern accented by a gold dot, a simple gold dotticure on my middle finger, and a single gold rose over white on my ring finger. This a little louder than the delicate look Rathy created for Something Old, but if you’re feeling like trying something new, maybe this is the look for you. :-)
I have another wedding nail art inspiration that will take a simple French manicure into something pretty and delicate for your wedding day.
One of the “Something Old” that came to mind was something that a friend included in her wedding. It was a piece of lace from her mother’s gown that she had incorporated into her own. So I decided to create my own lace nail art. It turned out so lovely that I think I could wear this on any occasion!
