I am so stoked on today's challenge! The task today is animal print nails. I've literally had this mani in my head for like a year. This was inspired by my ratty, old pair of flip flops lol and aided by [THIS] tutorial. Today I am also attending the Srasota Pride festival so what better way to represent than with some fierce, colorful nails?!
So for this look I started with Three coats each of How I Met Your Magenta(Pinkie and Index), Art Deco Yellow(Ring and Thumb) and Kung Fu Blue(Middle). I've included a pic of all my colors at the bottom of the post. For the "middle sponging" I used Papaya Punch, Tree Hugger and Funky Dunkey. For the very tips of the nails I just went back with the same base colors. Then I added a coat of INM Northern Lights and let it dry. I then stamped using Konad plate M78(I literally bought this plate just so I could do this mani wahy back when...) with Konad Black Special polish and topped it all off with Two coats of SV. I am UBER happy with how this turned out and I cannot stop staring at my nails. I think it's the best sponging I've ever done.
Here are all my colors.
Here is a pic of the inspiration flip flops lol. I live in FL... So it's a requirement that I own like 27 pairs of flip flops, right?... Well I kind of do... And yet for some reason... I always find myself wearing this crappy, old $2.00 pair I got from Target, lol.
Here is a picture of my base colors by themselves. They are all Three coats of color and here they have already been topped off with Seche Vite.
I hope you all have a lovely Saturday and don't forget to check out Sam and Rie's blogs to see their Animal Print nails!
SRQ Pride fest here I come!
