31dc2013 Animal Print Nails

I'm so sorry for the unexpected break :( Things were happening in my real life that I needed to take care of.  Obviously, I didn't finish the challenge on time, so hopefully I'll be able to finish it sometime throughout the month of October. This is my manicure for the Animal Print day of the challenge. I see a lot of cheetah print and zebra stripes nails, so I wanted to do something original and after looking on google images, I found the Monarch Caterpillar and thought it'd translate well into nail art.

The gray color is OPI Nein! Nein! Ok Fine! I used acrylic paint for the stripes, then used a coat of OPI Matte Top Coat for the finish.  These were actually a bit challenging for me to do because I'm so used to doing extremely fine lines and these are so thick and messy! Here's a picture of the caterpillar.

Now, my nails.

I hope I did an okay job capturing the caterpillar! Again, I'm so sorry for the unexpected break. It's nice to be posting again :)
