Day Three TDoHNC: Stray Cat Strut

"I got cat class and I got cat style..." 

It's day three already! So, today's nails are a bit unconventional. They are partially inspired by a post by Mr. Candiipants and also my desire to do a shaped nail. I achieved this look by adding a tip to my nail. 

I started by painting each of my nails a different color: 
Revlon 320 Graceful 
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 460 Wet Cement
Finger Paints Paper Mache
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 670 Midnight in NY
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 150 Sun Kissed

I added details using Stripe Rite in white and Finger Paints striper in Ch-ART-coal Black. 

I used either Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 340 Mint Sorbet or 360 Mellow Yellow on their eyes and filled in the nose and ears with Mary Kay VV22 Pink Sand/ Sable Rose. 

Overall I had a lot of fun doing these nails. You'll be seeing another shaped nail design very soon- they are a bit addictive. Please check out the blogs of the other amazing and talented participants. They are totally rocking this challenge!
