31 DAY CHALLENGE -- Day 13: Animal Print

Hey everyone! Today is Day 13 of the challenge, which means ANIMAL PRINT NAILS! I tried out two different manis and couldn't decide between them.. so you get another double feature today! Woohoo! Both of these are super duper fun!

First up: Tiger Nails! I took an opportunity to reuse Rimmel's Tequila Sunrise from Day 2 and then grabbed my LA Colors Art Deco Black Striper for the.. umm.. stripes. Chris had a huge tiger obsession when we first started dating.. literally everything in his bed and bathrooms was tiger themed. It was.. intense. Thankfully, he's kind of outgrown it.. but I could tell he was secretly pleased to see some tiger print on my nails! ;)

I'm bummed that I was impatient and my top coat smeared the stripes, but it's waaaayyy more obvious in the pictures than it was in person. If I had to pick a favorite out of the two.. I think it'd definitely be this one!

Next but certainly not least is Glitterbomb Leopard Print! I started off with 3 (or was it 4?) coats of OPI's Crown Me Already and put on a layer of top coat to smooth everything out. Then I used a Sharpie to make the outline of the spots and Color Club's Warhol for the accent.

These really popped and looked amazing in person.. but they were so hard to photograph!

I hope you enjoyed both of these manis! Which one is your fave? :D


  1. Those tiger nails rock! Orange really suits you.

  2. Why thank you, my dear! I have to admit.. I was REALLY bummed to have to take those tiger nails off. But I'll do them again later!
