Summer Stripe Kitty

Hey all! After seeing this amazing guest post on Sekhmet's Purple Castle by the super talented Carol from Colores de Carol, I knew I could put off Hello Kitty nails no longer. Acquiring an adorable light shimmery pink really didn't hurt either. I know this french tip kitty has been done but I wanted to try it, I have yet to get my hands on the stamping image with Hello Kitty so I had no choice really. I smudged the crap out of it with top coat even though I waited what felt like forever but I still loved how it came out. Take a look!





Polishes used:

  • Sally Hansen Salon Manicure base coat / Seche Vite top coat
  • Pure Ice Pink Ice
  • Sinful Colors Hazard
  • Maybelline Color Show Go Go Green
  • Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby
  • Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow
  • Kiss Nail Art stripers in white, black, silver glitter

I started off with 3 generous coats of Pure Ice Pink Ice and it was so cute and shimmery that it just screamed for a Hello Kitty of some sort. I also had an urge to make stripes so I picked some summery shades to go with it and striped away. Go Go Green is probably my current favorite green that I own, it is such a gorgeous  bright kelly green (and being a Kelly how could I possibly not love it?). I should really swatch it on it's own for you all because it's just an all around great polish as is Pink Ice. 

I apologize for the super late post today, I've been feeling like crap. As such I will now return to my nest of blankets on the couch for the rest of the evening with my bottle of water. Hope you all had a better Monday, thanks for reading!

  5. This is so cute! I don't think I'll ever stop loving Hello Kitty & Co. Although my favorite is a toss up between Badtz Maru and Chococat. ^_^

    1. Same, I actually have a Chococat bowl that I forbid anyone else to eat from. And I may possibly be in possession of a Badtz Maru drinking glass that holds my toothbrush lol.
