31DC2012 Day 13: Animal Print

I wanted to do something different than the usual animal print nails. I started looking up photos of lizards and found this guy.

Isn't he pretty?

I used a gradient technique and then a added black spots using a dotting tool. To make it resemble the lizard skin, I added lighter colored dots all over. Make sense? Probably not, I'm terrible at explaining things.

I really love this but it's not fitting my current autumn mood. I used OPI Who the Shreck are You?, OPI Fly, China Glaze Liquid Leather, and China Glaze Snow.

  3. I LOVE these. The color combo, the pattern, everything about them rules.

    I love this... first of all the lizard is so beautiful and second of all you have nailed (haha) the pattern of his skin perfectly :)

  5. Wow, very cool. You have a terrific imagination! This is one mani that deserves a video tutorial!!!!
