FingerFood Theme Buffet: Week 1 - Animal Print

Hello lovelies!

I'm back again with a 2nd post! I really need to start writing these posts ahead of time and by that I mean not at 6:15am the day the post needs to go up...It's cool. Whoops. What is sleep? Anyways today starts the FingerFood Theme Buffet! 

Here are my Week 1 nails!

Can you guess what animal this is? (:

Here's what I used:

The animal I chose was a Sea Slug! More specifically this one! I couldn't decide an animal print to paint, last time I had an animal print prompt I painted a deer (here). I've never actually painted a leopard, zebra, or tiger print manicure. But I was inspired by Chalkboard Nails' sea slug post that she did (here). She was definitely on to something with this find, who knew sea slugs could be so pretty! (:

I personally loved how funky looking these nails were and I want to revisit this design with different colors. The neon freaked my camera out a bit and I smudged my middle finger but I'm happy with these nails! (:

Here are the upcoming themes:

  2. I remember Chalkboard Nails slug mani, loved that one! Yours is great too! I was pondering sea creatures for the FingerFood's theme week, but I went with something different (coming online tomorrow though)
