Digit-al Dozen December Birthday Mani

Greetings and Nailutations!

Today I am celebrating 3 birthdays in the Digit-al Dozen that were celebrated in the month of December.  First is my girl Kerry from Painted Fingertips, we both have an orange cat, we both love wine and we both love nerdy things!  Second is Cathy of More Nail Polish, who is a nerd in a technical field like me!  Nerds unite!  :)  The last birthday is mine of course!  I selected this month's image and it contains everything I love (other than nails) - cats and music!

Let's get to the details.

Products used:
Jenna Hipp - Pinky Promise
Heather's Hues - Heart of the Matter
Everything else was a striper from random brands

I started with a base of Pinky Promise.  I created the outline of the hearts and let that dry as well as the outline of the cat.  I filled it in with white and added details to mimic the inspiration.  Everything is topped with Heart of the Matter.

I love how it turned out and I hope that Kerry and Cathy had fabulous birthdays (even though Kerry was stranded in Atlanta due to the power being out at the airport!).  I celebrated with a nice dinner with my husband and then later that weekend we did a quick 3 day weekend to Vegas.

Be sure to check out the other manis inspired by the photo selected below!

Happy Polishing,
