Hello lovelies!
Quick post again today because it’s late….and I spent my Friday night doing homework, yeah, lame, I know…
So, onto the nails!

And I guess I did striped nails two days in a row? Whoops.

Here’s what I used:
Today’s theme for the 31 Day Challenge is animal print, which honestly, I don’t like because I feel like it’s so typical. I think every challenge has an animal print day and I have a hard time finding something that is different. But I found something for today! These nails were inspired by a Map Puffer Fish

These nails started with two coats of Zoya’s Codie and a layer of HK Girl. Then using the bigger of the two striping brushes and the yellow acrylic paint, I freehanded on the stripes randomly. When that had dried, I used the white acrylic paint and the smaller striping brush to paint inside the yellow stripe. You could probably do this with nail polish but I find that acrylic paint is more opaque so it covers over darker colors better and it’s easier to control. These were finished with a layer of HK Girl.

For a weird looking fish, these turned out to be pretty cool nails! I wish I hadn’t done these in the beginning of my nail art spree yesterday because I would have liked to actually wear these for a bit. That’s another downfall of daily challenges, you can never wear what you paint for very long and by long, I mean like 12+ hours because I still change my nail polish everyday even when not doing long challenges…..yeahhhhh….
Thanks for reading guys!
