Hello Kitty Part Deux

Experimenting with my Hello Kitty designs again.  This time Miss Kitty took on a purple theme.  I added some lavender rhinestones...but they didn't turn out as "blingy" as I had hoped...I may have to invest in crystals instead of these cheapie fake gemstones.

After all is said and done, I think I prefer the last HK I did with the pink tip (scroll down a couple posts)  Let me know which one you like better.

You may have already heard, but Sephora has a nail polish line by OPI.  It's quite quality.  I loved this shade called "Under my Trenchcoat."  It's a hybrid color that some have nick named "greige" (grey/beige...get it?)   I think it's THE must have color for this fall for everything: clothes, shoes, bags and NAILS! 

On Sunday I had my first foray offering my "handywork" to the public at Dun Up Boutique.  I did Sabina's nails with this polish.  Really, really tried hard to get the remnants of red off of her cuticules from her previous manicure (compliments of her 5 year old)...but it stuck like glue.  I used a couple of floral-lace patterns to make it sweet & feminine.

Me...putting in mad work.

What's Black, White and Pink All Over?

These hot nails, of course!  The name of this new pink Orly polish is escaping me right now.  In person it's like a neon fuschia.  Lovely.  I went to town with different patterns in black & white.  My favorite is the white tiger stripes with the black tip on her ring finger.  I'll be back with crisper images...and the name of that Orly polish!

Clean up those edges, girl!

Miss Kitty, How do I love thee?

Hello Kitty.  I love you.  You've made me smile since I was 5 years old.  This is my ode to you.

The Inspiration

White. Yelllow. Blue. How do you do?

This reminds me of  "tacky then, but cool now" 80's art.  Don Johnson would have totally dug this pattern painted on the walls of his Miami penthouse circa 1984.  Tubbs would have been jealous.

After several bottles of wine and a belly full of ricotta stuffed pasta, this was the result on Miss Shakira's hands (no, not the yodeling bellydancer).  But she is a badass wardrobe stylist.  For booking information, check her website out here.
