Funky Zoo ;) Zebra/ Leopard Prints

This is my own design. I used my own nail polish that I paid with my own money. 😉 ( Or my husband’s $ XD)

 

 

 

This design that I came up with was suggested by a good friend of my. My little muse screamed ANIMAL PRINT! So I was like yea why not?!

I got a little sloppy with my ring finger so I decided that a little Japanese inspired nail deco would fit in great.

 

 

 

Polish I Used:

  • Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
  • Pink: Sinful Colors “Social Ladder”
  • Purple: Sinful Colors “Verbena”
  • Pink Spots: Sinful Colors “Cream Pink”
  • Pink Stripes: L.A. Colors Art Deco “Baby Pink”
  • Black Outlines: Jazz It Up Nail Art Brush/Pen

Now with the black I used only the brush end because on this particular brush/pen combo the pen flow is very hard to control! Like all my other designs you can mix it up! If you like more of leopard prints you can skip the stripes all together, or vice versa. You can also do this in any colors you like. I just happen to think that the pink and purple where awesome together. 😀  Also if you don’t have the gems, or just don’t prefer them, you don’t have to use them at all.  Nothing is set in stone! XD

P.S. I would not recommend using my nails to do the spots and stripes! It’s much easier to find a picture on the internet of a leopard or zebra (or tiger..?) and looking at it’s coat for a better visual.

 

✯-☆-★ Fresh Beat ★-☆-✯

This is my own design, using my own polish that I bought with my own money. 😉

I used a vibrant pink on all the tips of the nails. I painted a black crackle polish over the pink on just my thumbs and ring fingers. Then I lined the very top part of the painted tip in a magenta.

Sorry about the little finger!I didn’t remember to fix the nick on it, oh well! LOL

Polishes Used:

  • Base Coat- OPI’s Nail Envy
  • Pink- Salley Hansen HD “Digital”
  • Black Crackle- China Glaze’s Crackle Glaze “Black Mesh”
  • Magenta- L.A. Colors Art Deco “Magenta”
  • Top Coat- Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Feel free to be creative and use other colors if you like. Have fun ! And you don’t have to use the same brand to achieve this same look.

Cherry Nails


This design was one made by Dollface22772 on Youtube Titled “Cherries Jubilee”.

This is my own variation of it. I didn’t have any of the cherry fimo slices so I had painted the cherries using a dotting tool. Also instead of using a pink crackle polish, I painted over the white edge on one corner with a red polish. Then covered it with a white crackle polish.

Polishes I Used:

  • Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
  • Top Coat: Seche Vite
  • White: Salley Hansen Xtreme Wear “White On”
  • White Crackle: Chine Glaze Crackle Glaze “Lightning Bolt”
  • White Stripe: Sinful Colors “Bad Chick”
  • Red Stripe: Sinful Colors “Be my Valentine”
  • Green Stems: L.A. Colors Art Deco “Bright Green”

 

 

 


♫ Dance Fever ♫

This is my own design. I used my own nail polish that I bought with my own money. 🙂

This design I came up with is so much fun! Every time I see it I feel like dancing 😉

I try to always use a base coat on my nails.

Starting with the little finger I used a pink to cover the whole nail. I then used a light pink and black to make some stripes.

On the ringer finger I painted the whole nail black and used my favorite glitter polish and did a gradient design.

The middle finger is covered first with a black, I then went over it with a purple/green/grey(?). It reminds me of that kind of car color that looks different from whatever angle/light your in. The camera didn’t quite capture any of the green in it.

The index finger is painted with a sort of brownish color and also a gradient effect in the same glitter polish as the ring finger.

The thumb is done in a black and a silver crackle over top of it.

Polishes I Used:

  • Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
  • Top Coat: Seche Vite
  • Pink Polish:Sally Hansen HD “Digital”
  • Pink Stripes: L.A. Colors Art Deco “Baby Pink”
  • Black Stripes: Jazz It Up Nail Art Pen and Striping Brush “Black”
  • Black Polish: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear “Black Out”
  • Glitter Polish: Sinful Colors “Frenzy”
  • Purple/Green: Wet n Wild “Gray’s Anatomy”
  • Brownish: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength “Tyin’ The Knot”
  • Silver crackle: Salley Hansen Crackle Overcoat “Fractured Foil”

This design takes some time to do. If you’re in a hurry I wouldn’t suggest this design, because it took me at least an hour to finish! :O
