A Week of Old Favorites: Day 2 ~Glitter Kitties

Whelp, this design looked so simple.  I thought oh I'll nail this in like 10 minutes and then do a couple more for fun.  Nope.  Not as easy as it looks.

For Day 2 of my little walk down mani-memory lane I chose a look from August of 2015, when I was big on negative space, sponged glitter and dotting tool designs.  I modified it slightly as I don't really include my thumb in photos anymore (unlike the classic 'claw' pose most nail art enthusiasts use in the beginning).

I mean. you can still at least tell I was going for cats right?  Also was not helpful that at least 3 of my dotting tools have disappeared over the years, so I had to get creative and use the end of brushes!
It was a great excuse to take this Sassy Pants Polish Glitter- Temptation for a spin though!

Not Every Recreation is better than the original! 

I am really hoping to do better with the Day 3 design, it is such a cute design!  Wish me luck! ~Kelly
