31 Day Nail Challenge: Week 13 - Animal Print

I have a confession to make... I don't like animal print. I just don't like it. I love animals, but not animal print. I guess it's because to me it makes me think of animal skins.. as in.. dead animals. Actually it really makes me sad.

I went for leopard print because I love leopards and I thought if I used bright colours so it didn't look too much like a leopard skin then I wouldn't feel so bad about it.. but I dunno. I don't hate it, but I don't like it much either. I makes me think of poachers =(

I like the colour combination, it's nice =) I used Models Own Champagne for the background, No7 Stand Back for the blue dots and China Glaze Traffic Jam for the pink dots. The black was done with my Rio nail art pen. Sorry about the colouration of the photos, my lamp makes everything yellow and there is no daylight left.

Here are some sleepy leopards to make everything better!

There. That's more like it. Here are Gemx's nails =)

"I haven't had a lot of time this week so I've had to go for a really basic look. I have also been taking part in an experiment that requires me to have my hands scanned and I've not been allowed to wear nail polish for this! Very irritating! :/ This is just a base coat (Sally Hansen Hard As Nails) and my Topshop black pen liner. I prefer using an eyeliner to nail art pens and brushes for something like this. I can't seem to manage one of those thin nail art brushes without making a mess with it :) I will try harder next week when my experiments are all done! :)"

Gem's nails look in such good condition! I like the mix of stripes and spots.. and these look kinda polka dotty, not so much fur trade.. which is a good thing. I like putting designs over French manis and these look great on the bare nail. The design is nice.. it still makes me think of the poor animals though. I just don't deal with animal print very well. My brother said that I should have done paw prints so now I'm kicking myself that I didn't think of that myself. D'oh. Never mind.

I'm going to head over and look at Alli's animal print nails if you would care to join me =)

I am *so* glad it wasn't just me who really wasn't feeling this weeks challenge! I don't mind animal print too much, but I never wear it and certainly didn't want it on my nails. I was surprised that they came out ok, but yeah... I won't be doing it again any time soon!
