Freehand Rain Cat With 3D Gel Drops

Allo polish Pals!

How are you all doing today? I hope you had an awesome weekend?
I am enjoying my day off before a full week of work, I've got loads of hours this week as our store will be doing Black Friday sales and late night Christmas shopping begins on Thursday – exciting!

So far I've not been able to do much freehand in between shifts – simply because the time I do try I am putting too much pressure on myself to do something good. I am sure I'll get back into it but either way I've still so many posts to share with you guys.

Today I've got a combination of 3D gel and freehand, this little cat looks like he's waiting for the rain to stop. My own cat baby has been spending a lot of time inside sleeping as it gets colder outside.








Again.. excuse the older nail shape. I think you'll be seeing it in a few more posts, eurgh.
For this manicure I began with my OPI 'Nail Envy' although I am actually using my ORLY Top2Bottom a lot now, I didn't have it when I did this manicure. I then applied two coats of China Glaze's 'White On White' to my index, middle and ring finger. On my thumb and pinkie I used ORLY's 'Sky Blue'.

Once my thumb and pinkie were dry I then used a dotting tool and some gel top coat, I dotted various blobs across the nails and cured – voilà, rain drops!

On top of the white nails I used my acrylic paints and my Dance 20 bush from WhatsUpNails to create my cat and window scene. I sealed this all in with two coats of top coat.

Have you used gel to create 3D elements before? What do you guys think of my rainy cat scene?

Have a fantastic day my friends, thank you so much for visiting. I'll catch you again on Wednesday.

 



Love,
Ithi

  12. This is so cute! I love the rain drop effects. The cat is cute too. My cat has been mad at Mother Nature lately because it's either too cold or has been rainy & has to stay inside more often.
