#31DC2015: Animal Print

Do you ever have one of those successful mani's that make you absolutely giddy with how awesome it is? That's me with today's prompt for the #31DC2015. Today is Animal Print and I'm basing my look off of the Blue Pangan Poison Arrow Frog.  I started off with a base of Lime Crime Once in a Blue Mousse. This is a bright pastel blue that is applied easily in 2 coats. 




I then taped off and latexed off my fingers (I still made a huge mess, big surprise!) and used the Alcohol Water Marbling technique with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure All Fired Up to create the patterns.




And there you have it. I think this is my favorite design from the challenge so far. Tomorrow is flower nails. Can't wait!


Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

  1. It looks just like the frog! I cannot master this alcohol water technique to save my life, I think I need to try something other than hairspray.
