Day 14 of the 30 Day Mani Challenge: Animal Print

Okay, since I really don't like animal prints on anything other than animals and I don't like to wear bright colors, I decided to use all my brightest nail polishes and stamp all of the animal print patterns at once. Why not, right?

I actually really liked the final result. It took me FOREVER and it was tedious but when I was finished I was rather surprised on how much I actually liked it. I even wore it for a few days (most of my manicures are lucky to make it a full 36 hours before I get the itch to do the next one).

To Get This Look: I've numbered each nail on the above photo so I can list the base polish, polish I used to stamp with, and image plate (in that order) for each nail.
  1. SH Insta-Dri "Lightening" (base), Wet N Wild "Black Creme" (stamp), m61 (image plate)
  2. SH Insta-Dri "Lickety-Split Lime", Revlon TopSpeed "Grape", m78
  3. Maybelline ExpressFinish "Go Go Grape", Revlon TopSpeed "Electric", BM221
  4. Wet N Wild "Sunny Side Up", SH Insta-Dri "Brisk Blue", BM211
  5. Maybelline ExpressFinish "Timely Turquoise", Konad Light Pink Special Polish, BM223
  6. SH XpressFinish "Twisted Pink", Wet N Wild "Black Creme",  SH25
  7. Sidenote: I decided that animal footprints technically fall under the "animal print" category heh heh. Maybelline ExpressFinish "Go Go Green", Revlon TopSpeed "Espresso", SH08
  8. Sinful "Pull Over", SH Insta-Dru "Rapid Red", m78
  9. SH XtremeWear "Blue Me Away", SH Insta-Dri "Whirlwind White", BM211
  10. SH XtremeWear "Caribbean Coral", Revlon TopSpeed "Electric", BM223

There ya go. Lot's of time for something I thought I'd hate but ended up liking. I hope the other challenge I'm dreading turns out so good (I'm scared of water-marbling...).
