Grey polish, black cat

Happy Friday the 13th everyone! Yes, it’s upon us again, one of those unofficial holidays that we always remember. I couldn’t miss the chance to post a black cat nail design :)

At first I was going to do a simple swatch of Essence Got a Secret, but then I realized what day is today and added a cute black kitten on my accent finger (a water decay). The kitten looked puzzled and a bit scared so I painted a spider web over it to develop the idea of Friday, 13 a little further.

I’m not a big fan of posting macro pics of nail designs, but I feel like you’d want to see the kitten closer, right? Here it is:

You can see the difference between perfect water decay lines and my not so perfect free hand painted web … this is why I don’t like closeups of nail designs  :D

Overall, for the manicure I needed:

  • Essence Got a Secret #56 – a light grey base color (2 coats)
  • Kitten water decay
  • Sally Hansen 24 Black Out – black nail polish to paint the web
  • Orly Glosser – clear topcoater to fix and even the design

On a side note, this Essence nail polish is amazing. It’s the lightest grey shade I have and I love it a lot. I’ve already worn it several times, and used about half of its 5 ml bottle. I’ll repurchase it for sure. The only bad thing about it – I heard somewhere that the color is discontinued. I hope it’s not true…
