OPI What's with the Cattitude, Comparisons

OPI What's with the Cattitude

OPI Pastel Blue Nail Polish

Happy Mother's Day! Hope you all had a beautiful and relaxing day. Ever since the release of Finger Paints Blissfully Blue, I've been attracted to pastel blues lately. What's with the Cattitude hails from OPI's Shrek Forever After and it's a really fabulous sky blue that's not so milky.

Like most of the pastels from Shrek, application was tricky - but I was determined this make work. The first two coats were thin, streaky and a bit uneven. To avoid baldness and bare spots, try to use the 3 swipe method on these and avoid dragging your brush to much. On my last coat, I usually grab a heavier amount of polish in hopes of an even application. Remember to let each coat dry completely before reapplying.

Check out a Pastel Blue Comparison below.

What's with the Cattitude misses the pastel boat by just a hair. As you can see, it's not as milky as Havana Dreams or Take me to your Chateau and much bluer than Blissfully Blue.

Did pick up any goodies from The Shrek Collection? What do you think of this sky blue pastel? Have a wonderful night!

With the name of this on I was really expecting an Orange Tabby color. I was dissapointed. The color does not relate to the name at all. :(

Thanks for that comp... so helpful! I was considering picking up $OPI Havana Dreams, but now that I see how close it is to CC Take Me to Your Chateau I think I'll be fine without it!

Hi Keerthi,
You're very welcome! Yes, I agree! Plus Take Me To Your Chateau is soo much easier to apply than Havana Dreams, which is thin, sheer like.

Great tips on applying the nail polish, thanks. I love the colour, I think it's really bold but I don't think it would suit me at all, I prefer greens to blues.

Ooh, wow! Love OPI's What's With the Cattitude? on you. I have that (along with FingerPaints Blissfully Blue) and this one was, surprisingly enough, easy for me to apply. Now, while I do love this sky blue, I was kinda expecting a neutral orange loaded with goldish-yellow chunky glitter to distinguish itself from all those orange base/gold shimmers I've been seeing A LOT of lately.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
