Today I I'd get back to the 31 Day Challenge so... I am up to day 13 which is an animal print mani. I haven't ever done an animal print one before so this was fun. I chose to do snake skin print. For this mani I used 2 coats Wet n Wild Black Creme topped with one moderate coat of Color Club Nouveau Vintage.

I haven't tried Nouveau Vintage on its own yet but over black it looks like an olive green shimmer with some brown undertones. I then proceed to stamp over it using BM-215 and China Glaze Passion, Delight , and Robotika. Topped it all off with 1 coat of Wet n Wild Clear Nail Protector. It was very hard to photograph where you can really see the base color and the stamp detail.

I placed one drop of each of the three China Glaze at the top of my stamping image and then pulled my scrapper straight down so my image was filled with the 3 color in a kind of stripe pattern. I really like how it turned out. Even the imperfect stamping adds a sort of shedding snake quality. I'll definitely be playing with this pattern again.

Much Love, The Dragon Lady
