Native War Paints Drops of Sunshine featuring Born Pretty Cats- Press sample

I hope you guys are having a wonderful weekend so far! We're going to take a short break from all of the autumn and Halloween themed manis for a moment. I wanted to take some time away to try a new nail art technique and to give my thoughts on the Born Pretty Cute Cat Design plate. Let's start off with a swatch of my base shade.

Native War Paints- Drops of Sunshine

nail polish swatch

Formula: Nice consistency
Finish: Neon yellow creme with orange shimmer
Coverage: 3 thin coats
Notes: I entirely regret that I was unable to capture the gorgeous shimmer in this polish. It's absolutely stunning, so you will just have to take my word on it.

Born Pretty Cute Cat Design Plate

I used two images from this plate for my look. The first image I used were the cute pawprints along the edge of the plate. The second image was the lucky cat in the middle of the plate. I initially tried to stamp using the spotted lucky cat (right next to it) but I found it difficult to get a clean image with that design. I think that my issues stemmed from the fact that the stamping polish I chose had a thin formula. I don't believe it had anything to do with the plate.

I don't know if you guys can tell, but I decided to push myself out of my nail art comfort zone with this mani. I've never attempted a radial gradient, but I thought I would give it a go. Let me tell you, it's far more difficult than I thought it would be. If you guys have any tips for how to complete a successful radial gradient please leave me a comment below. I could definitely use some help!
