31 Inspired Days of Nail Art – Day 17: Animal Print Nails

As usual, here I am posting super late. I am such a spaz. I was pretty busy today so at least I have an excuse. Since I was short on time and lacking any really creative ideas, I decided to resort to stamping. I know, I know…I kind of cheated. But hey, at least I got the right challange design unlike other people. *cough* Nicole *cough* hehe.

I decided to finally use one of the glitters that so many people raved about when the China Glaze On Safari Collection came out. Now, which one to use? I Herd That or I’m Not Lion? I decided to give I Herd That a Whirl…

This glitter is absolute perfection. I am not kidding. It’s easy to apply, it covers nicely with only 2 coats and it just SPARKLES like a mofo. I love it and can’t believe that I have waited so long to use it.

I used Konad plate M57 for this design along with Konad’s Black special polish. I think it came out pretty well. I am definitely happy with the simplicity of this mani. I Herd that is definitely the star here, and I can’t wait to use I’m Not Lion!!!

Since I have you here, don’t forget to check out my blog sale. I am doing a huge purge of polish. Most of my polishes have only been swatched once, and I really want to find a new home for them since I know I won’t use them much. You can see all the polishes I have for sale here.

Don’t forget to check out the other animal print manis for today’s challenge…or a floral mani if you’re Nicole. Let me know what you think and talk to you later!

  1. I love these!! They are so pretty! I love that glitter and the black over top just looks so pretty. It’s like the sparkliest cheetah ever! 🙂 Also- now that you said I’m doing floral I added my link. I didn’t want to earlier cuz I thought people would be like WHATTTTT? And think I was just some crazy person adding my random link in! Haha.

    1. Thank you! I think I should continue to stick to simplicity. Every time I try something creative, my nails end up looking like they belong on a diseased hooker. So what are you going to do with your animal print nails?

    1. I still haven’t used that one. I should find a way to use it soon! We have the flower theme today so maybe I will try it out. I still have no idea what to do!

  2. Clowning on Nicole – hahaha! Your nails “looking like they belong on a diseased hooker” – hahaha!
    I will add in some additional triumphant praise and say that I also LOVE THESE! They look fantastic!
    I have I Herd That and I’m Not Lion in the untrieds, too. Actually, I think I may have all of that collection in my untrieds. WTH is my problem?!?!

    1. Thank you! I can’t believe I waited so long to try I Herd That because it’s amazing. I think that the strong contrast is what makes this mani such a winner. When I did it, I was thinking they were so boring and predictable and then everyone went nuts about them. I was kinda surprised. lol
