Morning Ladies! Happy Wednesday!
Since it's officially Halloween season, I have my first Halloween mani to share with you today! Recently Maggie from KKCenterHK sent me some products to review. One of the products that I chose was a really cute cat stencil. I dig black cat manis (obviously, this is only the 3rd I've posted on this blog!), and this cat stencil was purr-fect for a Halloween manicure.
These stencils are very different from your run-of-the-mill sticker style stencil. They are a red silicon type material that really molds nicely to the shape of the nail, creating a crisp, clean image. They actually molded almost perfectly to my nails, which is a feat since I have a very pronounced C-Curve. I wasn't expecting to like these, since I've used other Nail Stencils with horrible results, but these babies really work well.
I decided to pair them with Wet N Wild Don't Be Cheesy, a really awesome yellow/Orange, as my base color, and used Finger Paints Black Expressionism for the stencils on my Thumb and index fingers. Then I added some bats on my middle finger and pinky using Bundle Monster plate BM213 and Konad Black. I LOVE how this came out!
Here's a macro shot of the stencil on my index finger:
I am loving these like woah! Cats and bats - my Halloween faves! I have to admit, I really do not want to take these off tonight.
Don't Be Cheesy is a surprise fave as well. This color kind of reminds me of the cheese you get on Movie Theater Nachos. Not a color I would normally have chosen, but I am really digging it! It also had a perfect formula and easy peasy application. Bonus!
These are the stencils I used for the cats:
Aren't these just adorable? At first I thought they would be stickers, but nope. Silicon type stencils. They have a half moon shaped curve at the bottom, which leads me to believe they are designed to placed facing you, but I am a rebel (haha) and used them facing away so other people don't have to try to flip their heads upside down to see them. They were easily placed, conformed to the nail nicely, and peeled off easily. Quick and easy to use - that makes Kimber a Happy Panda! These retail for $2.67 and can be found at KKCenterHK Online Store, Product Number NPM-M041, or click the picture above!
