Sometimes you should just leave things alone

Two days ago I posted a 'returning' white to grey gradient mani which I turned into a chevron returning reciprocal gradient the day after. If that wasn't confusing enough, I decided to add some dots. What happened though, really, was that I thought the chevron mani looked like my kitty Menchie because of the grey and white zig zags, like her fur. But it wouldn't be like Menchie without some pink (the colour of her collar).

So, I confused an already confusing mani and ruined it. I blame the kitty.

Polishes used:
- Essie 'Power clutch'
- Sephora Formula X 'Extraordinary'
- Orly 'Pointe blanche'
- Charlotte Russe (no name... I just realized that 'Pastel SP09 NAI' is indicated on this pink polish AND on an aqua polish I raved about last month... oops. My heart is now broken; neither of these polishes have a name!)
- Ceramic Glaze 'Tropical guava'
- Nyx 'Cancun pink'
- Rimmel 'Be a star'
