Tan Nails - and Tan Kittens!

For the past few days, I've been wearing Zoya Minka from Zoya's new Touch Collection.  During these last couple of days I have also been petsitting for three adorable little kittens!

Zoya Minka

Can I just say that I am in LOVE with this color?  The nude shade (with hints of pink) matches my skin so well and gives my nails such a natural, professional look (not to mention it makes my fingers look long and lean).  I used two coats for excellent coverage and although I've been wearing it since Sunday morning without a top coat, my nails are still chip-free.


Now for the kittens!
My parents' neighbors found these kittens about a month ago; their mom is a feral (we are getting her spayed as part of the trap-neuter-release program).  Two of the kittens are girls and one is a boy.  Most orange or tan cats are males, and orange/tan females are very rare because in order for a female cat to be orange or tan, her mother needs to be a calico and her father needs to be orange.  Isn't that interesting?  

How adorable are they?  Kittens are just so cute!  This is the tan girl:

This is the little orange girl (she is the most shy):

Here is the tan boy:


Hope everyone is having a nice Wednesday!

That polish is perfect for your skin tone. Looks lovely!

Awww...those kittens are adorable! I like the last photo especially. You can tell that he's thinking about chasing his tail. Love when they do that. :)

Thank you Gina!! I have always wanted a cat with blue eyes - your Siamese sound gorgeous!!

Thanks Annie!! We are always promoting trap-neuter-release in our area because there are a lot of super sweet ferals that are so friendly and such nice cats, and they deserve to be able to live the life they want outdoors :)

Thanks SwatchandLearn!! haha, they do LOVE chasing their tails - it is so funny to watch!!

Kirsten, it is the PERFECT shade for me - I am loving it! It just feels so natural and elegant. I am very fair, and it works really well for me (I could even be a bit tanner and it would match perfectly!). And thanks about the kitties!!

Cris, haha I know, they are so cute!! I loved looking through all of the pictures!!

Polishedtothenines, you remember mannequin hands too? That's so funny - I remember when ALU did that in Feb 2010 :) I kept thinking mannequin hands when I was trying these! :)Thanks about the kitties too!!

Thanks Toyomi!!

Thank you Kimberly!! They are such a joy, aren't they? Baby animals are SO CUTE - it is so sweet seeing them experiencing new things and how much fun they have playing together :)

I am usually a dog person, (little puppies) however, all animals are just so happy and care free; these little darlings are just like that, so playful and you just want to, pick-them up.

Your hands and nails are so beautiful and what a way to lead off this and end with these beautiful kittens. I also remember Michelle's of ALU.com "Mannequin hands, LOL" She is the best!
