Hello Kitty French Tip!

Hi Guys! I tried to do a Hello Kitty French Tip. I'm a big Hello Kitty fan so I was excited when a friend requested this design. I tried my best but my Hello Kitty is not an exact replica of the real thing. Scroll down to view the picture tutorial :D

French Tip your nails a soft pink. Tip your ring finger with white.
I extended the length of the French Tip longer than my natural tip to have more space to work with.
If you don't have long nails, fake it!

Use a dotting tool to add dots to the pink tips

You can use a toothpick or match as a dotting tool substitute 

Loving the white on pink :)

Add a yellow dot on the white tip for Hello Kitty's nose

Use a dotting tool to add two black dots for the eyes
Add the whiskers with a thin brush

My bow is deformed. I can't even explain what I did here haha. Try to make a circle and two triangles for the bow.

Not bad, right? Thanks for looking!

'Itty, Bitty, & Gritty' by China Glaze Texture

Hello friend! Texture polishes have been a current fad recently so I picked up "Itty, Bitty, Gritty' by China Glaze. I used my cousin as a  hand model for this post. Unfortunately, my cousin and I aren't a fan of this trend. Although this shade is a lovely coral/orange/pink, the texture really threw us off. It reminded me of ceiling popcorn and it reminded my model of sandpaper and reptiles. This polish would be great if you're look for something eccentric and different. Scroll down to judge for yourself :D
