It’s link up time again!!!! Yeeeehahhh! Love this link up every month, and guess what?! It’s been twelve beautiful months of doing the Paint All The Nails Link-Ups! You can check out all of mine from the last year here. I’ve definitely had some good ones, and some not-so-good ones.
As you can probably guess from the title, our theme this month is animal print. I did some super cute animal print nails that I hope you’ll like too!
I know this is not the norm, but I just had to photograph and show you the polish I used as my base coat for my nail art. Cirque Hatch is just divine! You’ve likely seen it swatched everywhere around the polish blogosphere, but I finally got my hands on it recently, and am so happy with it! Check it out!
How pretty is it? That was two coats of Hatch and one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.
I decided to do some simple stamping with a little pop of colour to create my animal print.
I used AiyooHehe Plate 076 from their Plaids And Florals release and chose the zebra image, keeping some of the floral in part of the design.
I used a regular black stamping polish, topcoated to seal it in, then grabbed some red leadlighting polish from Powder Perfect, Medieval, and painted in the flowers. It looked a little plain still so I lightly dabbed some sparkles on the center of the flowers using Cupcake Polish Bitter Almonds. This little addition made such a huge difference and I loved how it turned out!
What do you think? I hope you like this.
I’m super excited to go and see what everyone else did, so make sure you go a click through to check out everyone’s work. The talent of these ladies always floors me!
