It's been a seriously long time since I've done any animal prints, and since I couldn't decide, I opted to do two, yes TWO different ones. Because I'm crazy like that. Haha!



Cheetah:
I started with two coats of Rooney and when that was dry, got out a medium dotting too and made some blobs with Boundary of Memory. After that dried, I got out a smaller dotting tool, and surrounded each of the glitter blobs, with smaller, slightly curved blobs. Yes, in case you're wondering, blobs are where it's at. Haha!

Zebra:
After two coats of Paper Mache for a base, I got a long, skinny nail art brush and made the stripes with Black Expressionism. I find the Finger Paints polish is better than black Stripe Rite, because it goes on smoothly and doesn't need a second coat. To add some sparkle, I traced a few of the black lines with silver glitter Stripe Rite. 


What were you rocking this week? Link up and show off! And I hope you have an awesome weekend!

Yay indecision! ;)
I find I have little control over my StripeRite polishes. Maybe I need to hold the handle by the stem or something, but they always come out too wispy, varied thickness, and not in a straight line.

You rock the Paper Mache! And the other polishes. ;)
