31 Day Challenge 2014: *13*

Yesterday, it was negative space and stripes. Today's prompt... ANIMAL PRINT, and I'm seriously loving how this manicure turned out!

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats OPI Skull & Glossbones
Spoiled I Only Eat Salads
SinfulColors My Buoyfriend
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Nail art is normally not my thing. However, this challenge has really warmed me up to the idea. I'm not gonna lie... I looked around yesterday for a stamping kit to do this manicure, and couldn't find one. So, I actually had to use a dotting tool to create this... and it turned out really well!

The inspiration for my animal print nails came from my favorite TV show... Pretty Little Liars. Specifically a sweater worn by Mona Vanderwaal in the 100th episode...

Today's nails are definitely an ode to Miss Vanderwaal. I'm sad that she's "gone," but glad to hear that she'll still be on the show via flashbacks. I can't WAIT to see what's next!

I'm really proud of how this design turned out. The funny thing is, I wasn't so sure about it right after I finished. However, after a good night's sleep and a fresh perspective in the morning... I realized that I was totally over thinking it. Which happens sometimes... even with nails. :)

13 Days down... 18 to go... Tomorrow's nails (that I'm off to paint as we speak) are FLOWERS.
