Twin Blog Post: Tiger Print



     Hi everyone, I'm back from my short break with a special post for you today. Its time for the monthly twin blog post challenge. This time around is a little different. Since we have an odd number of members in the Face book group I was teamed up with not one but two fabulous bloggers. I guess you could call this a triplet blog post.

     This months theme is Animal Print. Hannah from The Dalai Lamas Nails, Tina from  Light of the Moon Nails and I were given Tiger Print. We all decided to go a non traditional route as far as colors go and to not do exact matches of each other. I can't wait to see what they came up with!

     It took me a bit to decide on my final concept for this manicure. The ideas that kept popping into my head were far beyond my meager nail art skills. I also wasn't sure if I wanted to do something really bright or keep it on the subtle side. I opted to land somewhere in between, but leaning more towards the subtle.

Tiger-Stripe-Nail-Art-Non-Traditional

     I used Cult Nails Faded for my base color. This is by far my favorite grey polish. My original idea was to go with only the silver stripes and have a blinged out tiger but I worried that it wouldn't photograph well. I was hoping for a lighter hand with the blue to have it look like a shadow under the silver but as you can see that didn't work out as planned. I do like how this turned out though.


     Would you have guessed it was Tiger Print if I hadn't told you? After doing this manicure I've got the itch to try it with traditional colors too. I might have to make a post about that in the near future. Now how about we take a look at with the other ladies have come up with for this month.

    1. Thanks Lisa. It actually turned out better than I thought it would. Sometimes those striper polishes have a mind of their own for me.

  2. I love how this turned out! The colors you've used almost remind me of a snow tiger that has blue eyes (or maybe that's a snow leopard?!).

  3. You succeeded in having shadows, it just ended up that the silver was the shadow rather than the blue. I really like the colors you chose!

    1. Thanks Tina. Im surprised how much I like these colors together considering the blue was an after thought.
