I painted my kitty on my nails!

The theme for Nail Art Ideas Linkup this week is Animals & Pets.  So I couldn’t resist painting my own pet onto my nails.  fergie cat collageMy cat’s name is Fergie and she’s a dilute tortoiseshell kitty with cool grey and peachy colors in her fur.  Her name was actually FOGGY when I adopted her, but I changed it to Fergie and she didn’t even notice.  Nowadays she’s so Fergalicious I can’t imagine her any other way!  🙂  She’s such a fluffy little livewire!  She’s super vocal- meow meow meow all the time, and she can be quite temperamental at times!  So we basically treat her like a big baby and spoil her rotten as to not upset our special little girl!  Fergie gets the royal treatment.  (you guessed right- I don’t have kids yet LOL)

If I’m gonna paint my nails in her likeness and the root of her name is FOGGY then I might as well use my new bottle of OPI Haven’t the Foggiest.  Foggiest… Foggy… Fergie.  Makes sense!

This is the first time I’m trying this polish.  I wore it for four days on its own and I hafta say- I am LOVIN IT!!!!!!  If you like silvers or metallic shades, then you need this one!  It’s super-opaque and applied like a dream.  It has a cool brushed chrome finish and it’s not brush strokey.  After enjoying Haven’t the Foggiest for several days with no chips- I then painted my kitty Fergie on top.  I did a cartoon version of her.  Let’s check it out!

The idea to paint my kitty in a cute cartoon style came from a pinterest pin that led me to this article.  The article doesn’t link back to the nail artist that came up with it but I really like her nail art! I used it as inspiration and freehanded my design.  I also threw in some paw prints… just cause they’re adorbz. I like the way that my Fergie head came out.  I think I captured her attitude in an endearing kinda way!

Wanna hear what Fergie did to me yesterday?  She came over to sleep near me.  I started watching a long youtube video of a guy that just kept talking and talking.  Then Justin came in the room so I started talking a lot and laughing, telling him about the funny video.  I was being kind of loud and well, apparently, Fergie was getting annoyed with me.  So she stood up from her nap, faced me, and meowed “AAGGGGHHHHHH” right at my face!  It was like she was sayin, “SHUUUUUUTTUUUUUP!”  It was hilarious!  I dunno, maybe you had to be there?  But that was the first time I ever got yelled at by a cat!  It just cracks me and Justin up!

If you’re feeling inspired to paint your pet on your nails- you really should do it! 🙂  If not for fun, then for posterity!  Then post your pics somewhere online and link them here:  NAIL LINKUP.  If you’ve never used the inlinkz thing before and you have questions, then just email me!   I hope to see your pet or animal-themed nails!

Paw Print Nail Art

fergie_pawsWinter Storm Nemo just swept through New England!  The snow started falling here in NY on Friday afternoon… and by Saturday morning we accumulated at least 12 inches of the white stuff!  Other states like Connecticut and Massachusetts got hit even worse.  The news reported that some people were even stuck in their vehicles on highways overnight until the roads became passable!  Luckily, we’re just fine here in the Hudson Valley.  It’s like a beautiful snowscape outside ….. and I kinda love it!

My kitty cat Fergie got curious about the snow too.  She ventured out onto the front porch and left behind the cutest little paw prints ever!  When I saw those little tootsie marks I realized that I’ve never tried paw print nail art before!  So I decided to test out some techniques today and I wound up with two different designs….
