Day 13: Animal Print

Today's been one of the few days in the past week that I haven't had to agonize over what I was going to wear - this time, I knew it would be leopard print - in my opinion, it's the easiest animal print to do, and I was short on time as usual. I decided fairly quickly on using grey, black, and gold, and voila!

I'm really happy with the color combination I chose - I think it looks very classy. I used Lex Seattle Sunshine, Orly Luxe, and Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme, along with Aly's dotting tool (again...I should really get that back to you, Aly!). I'm always a big fan of leopard print nails, though I'm not a leopard print person in other areas of life. I suppose there are a lot of things I'd wear on my nails and not on my body! Another reason I'm a fan of leopard print nails is that it's a pretty easy pattern to do. I'd venture to say that it's the only "real" nail art design I've done that I didn't have to redo a nail (or two, or ten) on the first time I tried it. So, if you'd like to try nail art but are afraid you wouldn't be good at it, I'd definitely encourage you to start with leopard print, as it's a great way to ease into nail art. 

The other lovely ladies doing the challenge this month (I'm so glad I remembered to do this...for the first time in several days...):

I hope your weeks get off to a great start tomorrow morning!


  1. Love the colours you chose to use!!

  2. What a fun mani! I am never satisfied with any nail art that I try, but I think I may give this a shot :-) 

  3. You should! I promise, leopard print is really easy, and there are loads of tutorials out there.

  4. Loving the colors, Zara!!
