|O.P.I. What's With The Cattitude?, Ogre The Top Blue|
- With medium size dotting tool, make dots with Ogre The Top Blue. Start in the center of nail with first dot, then apply dots all around to make a full, round shape. Let Dry.
- With White nail pen, and Gunmetal, (using a small dotting tool) make shading and open circles in plates to mimic depth.
- Use What's With The Cattitude, Gunmetal, and dotting tool to make 5¢ on nails.
It's really hard to make something look 3-D when it's curved around a nail, and I'm not artistic.

- Once everything is dry, apply clear top coat.
- Dab clear top coat on area for fimo slice.
- Dip dotter into dab on nail, then tap dotter onto fimo slice.
