Bear by the Mani-tail

So this manicure won’t truly help you catch a bear but I did find that my kit cat Teddy Bear’s tail made for a nice contrast in showing off my latest creation…

Bear by the Tail

Whatever you do, don’t pull.

After applying a base coat, I covered my nails with a swipe of Sally Hansen’s White On.  Once semi-dry, I tipped the ends of my claws in OPI’s DS Radiance (this is apparently considered a ‘designer’ polish and runs about $11 – mine was a gift. So any silver will do!) and used Milani Nail Art in Black Sketch to complete the mini masterpiece.  The grand finale was a coat of Seche Vite’s Dry Fast Top Nail Coat (best ever in my amateur book) to make this mani last almost a week.


Triple Threat

Then I enjoyed using my painted talons as a matching accessory to my wine glasses.


Perfect mates, yes?

    Uh oh, using Ted’s tail as a photo prop and speculating on painting his claws?!? You are tempting fate you know that right? 🙂

    • I’m not only tempting fate but the overall quality of my face as it now stands. He swiped at my nose when I got home from work today…must have known what I was up to. Now I have a psychic kitty. Just one more reason to have a reality TV show!

  4. Love it! Always a good choice to match your nails to your drinks!

  5. Yes, perfect! Very cute.

  6. I always expect you to lose a finger in a Bear related attack. At least the nail will be perfectly painted when they try and reattach it.

Holla at me!
