What is a ikat? Is it a hipster feline who's so lovingly given himself the pet name iKat as an homage to his iPhone?

Is it the latest model of slotted furniture from the Ikea warehouse?

Do frenemies "ikat" one another?

Nope. None of those. It's a pattern sweeping the nation.

Light green base is Light Green (Love & Beauty/Forever 21). The pattern's a mix of Steady as She Rose (OPI) and Milky Ways (Lime Crime).


  1. Bwahaha, I love the possibly definition for ikat! I've tried this pattern a couple of times, but it ended up looking like bleeding eyeballs. Not cute!

  2. I lol'd :) looks cool, I may have to try this pattern.

  3. OHMG, there is the light green I have been looking for, I'm in love....
    The enitre mani is gorgeous, but I'm sorry that green is sooo distracting LOL

  4. What a beautiful light green! <3

  5. Damn, this looks lovely! I hope I can do it really soon (and hope not to forget it!)
    Thanks for showing this =)

  6. Ah, this looks amazing! I've got a 20% off voucher for O.P.I. nail polishes and I was wondering if you had any particular favourites? I want to choose one but there are so many!

    1. LUCKY! My favorites include Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It (red), Skull & Glossbones (taupe), The "It" Color (yellow), My Boyfriend Scales Walls (slightly greyish tinted white) and You Callin' Me a Lyre? (a very very sheer pink, perfect for french manicures). I hope that helps!
