Teal Tuesday: Animal Print

Whenever animal print was announced as the winner for today's Teal Tuesday theme, I got a really great idea that I was excited about...and then promptly forgot it haha. Luckily, I eventually remembered it :) This mani was inspired by one of my favorite pairs of earrings.

It's a peacock! While teal isn't really the main color here, the teal-ish color on the earring inspired me, so that totally counts...right? Sorry about the black specks. It was really late and I didn't get the chance to clean up.

Colors used: Zoya Apple, L.A. Colors Circuits, OPI Brisbane Bronze, OPI Fly, Ulta Dance Teal Dawn, Julep Marisa. The teal spot is Fly for the opacity+Dance Teal Dawn for some shimmer. I drew the designs with some different sized paint brushes.

I was having difficulties taking pictures of this because it was so shiny. I decided to add a coat of NYC Matte topcoat. It also kinda makes the effect similar to the earring.

I am head over heals for this mani! I love it a lot and don't want to take it off!
