31DC2013 Day 13 - Animal Print

I'm back from vacation and trying to catch up with emails and various other bloggy stuff including comments, so please bear with me. Today I would like to show you my manicure for Day 13 of the 31 Day Nail Challenge. The challenge is animal print. I have been wanting to try a manicure inspired by the beautiful patterns of poison dart frogs for a while now so I jumped at the opportunity to do it today. The hardest part was picking out which beautiful pattern to try...

For this manicure, I used a base of Ruby Wing Electric Firefly and free handed the pattern using black acrylic paint. Electric Firefly is a beautiful color changing lacquer that is neon yellow indoors and a mustard orange in the sun. Unfortunately it was cloudy and raining when I was working on this yesterday and I didn't get the opportunity to photograph it in the sun. I do love the idea of a color changing frog pattern though so hopefully I'll be trying this again on a sunny day...

Here is the yellow-banded dart frog that modeled for my manicure...

I'd love to know what you think of this manicure!

Thanks for looking!

  1. Wow! Your mani looks really cool! I love how you based yours on the frog's pattern! :)

  2. Oh, I think I hate frogs... but the manicure is perfect! :-)

  3. Beautiful! I love the inspiration, and this looks just great!

  4. That's so cute!! I also did a frog for my animal print day!

  5. Your mani looks exactly like the frog, very well done!

  6. Thank you very much ladies! I'm glad you like the frog print interpretation (even if you don't like frogs). I think their patterns are so beautiful. Next time maybe I'll even get to show it changing colors :)


I love getting comments and reading what you have to say! So don't be shy... comment! :D
