Hello Kitty!: Color Club Nomadic in Nude & Foil Me Once

Hello ladies,

I decided to create a manicure devoted to perhaps the world's most popular feline: Hello Kitty. This is a playful and girly look. I wanted to put together an all over nail design that resembles wallpaper with our most beloved kitty aesthetic.

Beginning with Nomadic in Nude as the base, I used a size zero sable brush from the art supply store to paint the pink diagonal stripe. I sealed Nomadic in Nude with quick dry topcoat before creating the line with Foil Me Once. As the Foiled Collection polishes dry fast on their own, I was able to apply the Hello Kitty decals after striping all ten nails.

I used tweezers to position the decals. Since the adhesive is strong, I would advise planning your manicure before adding the Hello Kitty decoration. I secured pink and translucent gems, hearts, and bows along with pearls to embellish the diagonal lines of color.

I have worn Nomadic in Nude on four different occasions since the Back to Boho Collection arrived last month. The polish is a very pale beige with a grey undertone. Ladies with porcelain skin will find this shade in the range of a mannequin hands color, with the grey tint keeping it from being a true flesh tone (unless you are a zombie). 

In over two years of blogging, Nomadic in Nude has been one of the most remarked upon shades when I have been out enjoying the day. Application was perfect. If you are looking for a fashion forward neutral, I highly recommend Nomadic in Nude. 

I hope you enjoyed my Hello Kitty nail art and the sweet design brough some cheer to your day!
