Twinsie Tuesday - Animal Inspired

It's Twinsie Tuesdayyy! Today's theme is an animal inspired mani. I love animals more than almost anything, so this had my mind going for a few days. Everything I thought of involved nail art, and I'm not fond of nail art. I kept putting it off until I saw a pair of socks I bought at Target and I was inspired to do a leopard mani....nail art and all.

I did two coats of Essie Playa Del Platinum and topped it off with Seche Vite. The leopard spots are Essie Tart Deco, Splash of Grenadine and Bermuda Shorts. I outlined the 'spots' in Sinful Colors Black and topped it with Seche Vite. I didn't wait long enough, and the top coat caused dragging (as you can clearly see). I tried to go back and fix it on the two nails where it dragged the worst, and it happen again. Do I get an 'A' for effort? lol

Ugh...smudges



My sock inspiration. I <3 <3 <3 Target!
Since I was out of the country last week and had no internet access, I didn't get a chance to announce a new blogger that we have added to the Twinsie Tuesday line up. Meet Elizabeth from Did My Nails, who has an awesome blog and killer nails! She has amazing nail art skills! Don't forget to stop by and see what the other Twinsies chose for their animal inspired manis as well.
