30 Day Challenge Day Thirteen - ANIMAL PRINT!

I don't really stamp. My few attempts with the $10 drugstore kit weren't great. So...once again I took the easy way out! LOL! The only animal print I thought I had a chance at free-handing is leopard so that's what I went for.

For this mani I used a base of Nails Inc. Hampstead Gardens and Oakley Street sponged together, leopard dots with Nails Inc. Holland Park Avenue and the black is Glitter Gal Serpent Black, which I WON from Kim at Overall Beauty! It's a little messy but at arms length you can't tell so I'm actually pretty happy with this one!

  1. Love, love, love! This is not the easy way out - stamping is the easy way out!

  2. Love! I don't stamp either. The uncertainty of getting a good image can be frustrating. More control when you do freehand :)

  3. oooooh from personal experience I know this is NOT the easy way out!!
    I think it turned out real great!
    only thing I simply cannot understand is - how did you manage to make so many spots on each nail? I LOVE LOVE LOVE it this way!! And when I tried it, after 5-6 spots my nail looked so busy... :-(

  4. Great free handing. Really very impressive. If I tried this I'd be wearing much of the bloody polish on my skin:)

  5. Gorgeous as always Sheila! I freehanded mine too :P

  6. Lovely! I have never even felt the need to try stamping :P

  7. you are so much better at art than you think you are xx
