Day 13: Animal Print - Misa Grey Matters

It's day 13 and time for animal print nails, but first I want to remind you to participate in my giveaway and also my Facebook giveaway.

I'm not really a big fan of animal print in anything, so I have never done animal print nails. I was first thinking of doing something different and trying to find some cool animal print (like some frog or lizard with cool colors) but then I decided that I should really try to do the 'traditional' leopard print manicure, because I wouldn't probably try it ever if not now with this challenge. So I checked out Pampered & Polished leopard print mani tutorial and tried to do one myself.

And here it is.. I think I managed to catch the look even though this is not nearly perfect or as neat as I've seen other people do. But this was my first try and I'm really not good with free hand nail art either, so keeping that in mind I think I did pretty good. At least it looked kind of cool from distance, lol. However, I don't see myself wearing this look very often, I guess animal prints aren't just my thing.

The base color for this manicure was Misa Grey Matters from their Surreal Escape Winter 2011 collection and the black is e.l.f. Black and for the dots I used Color Club Ultra-Astral. I knew I needed to have Grey Matters as soon as I saw Scrangie's swatch of it. And she was soooo right, it looks so cool, like bird eggs, just like she said.
