31 Day Challenge - Day 13: Animal Print Nails

Wednesday, September 18, 2013
Day 13 of the #31DC2013 was Animal Print Nails.

I cheated a bit and used a Python effect top coat by Bourjois for this look.  I actually purchased it a long time ago, and have only ever swatched it on one or two nails.  I always had a hard time finding the perfect base to use under it, but I figured the animal print theme would be the perfect time to try it again.

I used two coats of Color Club Cosmic Fate (one of my favorite holos in the collection!), then I applied one coat of the Python Top Coat.  I really love how Cosmic Fate just glows through the cracks in the top coat, and the Python Top Coat really looks like leather (in person especially).  It's a very cool effect.

My accent nail is two coats of Chanel Rouge Moire, and of course I added a tiny gold stud (which is totally unnecessary, but I'm a bit obsessed).  Chanel Rouge Moire is the most perfect fall nail polish; it's absolutely gorgeous.  I did not want to remove it.

Overall, I was very happy with this look!

Thank you for reading!



  1. This is awesome and a great idea for this theme! It really gives the effect of scales, and this is the kind of "cheat" I would totally do, lol!
