Something very sad happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I lost my pet of 18 years, Tink. We got her when I was only 4 years old and she has been the best pet I could've asked for. I am grateful, however, that she had a long, happy life and that she is now no longer in pain. As a tribute to her I have done a cat nail art design (with tutorial).
First I used OPI My Pointe Exactly as a base colour - a lovely sheer-grey jelly.

I then added grey circles to the tips of my nails, using OPI French Quarter For Your Thoughts.
I then added little grey ears with French Quarter and pink centres, using OPI Pink-ing Of You.
Then, using Sally Hansen Yellow Kitty, I added ovals as eyes. I then added the pupils with OPI Black Onyx.
I then added the mouth and whiskers with Black Onyx and the nose with Pink-ing Of You. I finished with a top coat of Seche Vite.
They turned out really cute but a little sad looking because of the way I painted the mouths :(
Losing a pet is something I had never been through before (apart from the odd fish I haven't managed to keep alive and a puppy we had when I was younger that had to be given away because we didn't have enough time for him). I miss her so much. This post goes out to Tink, may she rest in peace. Much love <3
