Animal Print & Floral

Sometimes I get these crazy ideas and then things happen way to late at night. I've got 3 major things happening on 3 of the post dates for the Untried Polish Challenge. So I was all "I'm going to be productive and get a few posts done early." I did that and then suddenly, it was 11:00pm and I had nothing to post for today. AUGH!! And I had used up all my inspiration. So I was just going to paint my nails a plain color and call it. Just a swatch day. But then I remembered this video and I was all "how hard can it be?" 

MISTAKE!!! It really isn't that hard, just time consuming. Luckily, I finished it up and got these pretty pictures for you before passing out. 


Unlike in the video, I chose to do roses just on my ring and thumb as accents. This was my first time doing the roses, and I like the colors, but I should have picked colors that contrast more. They're hard to see in the photos, but the detailing looks nice in real life. 


Color break down is as follows. I think this design takes the most polishes used award, so far. 
Base - OPI Glints of Glinda
Tips - OPI Glitzerland
Leopard Spots - China Glaze Kalahari Kiss (light) & China Glaze Mahogany Magic (dark)
Leaves - China Glaze Gaga for Green & Maybelline Color Show Tenacious Teal
Roses - Butter London Snog (Pink) &  Butter London Pillar Box Red

What do you think of this design? To much or just right?

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee
