Into the Wild

Oh Monday, you come quicker than a Cheetah on crack. Bleck. It's funny how I've been in synch with the Polishaholics Anon Facebook group's theme twice in a row. I've decided to do random manis that have matched up with their weekly choice. This week is one of my absolute favorites, animal print!!!

This mani was inspired by Bath & Body Works  new scent, Into the Wild. I had a small tester of the lotion and loved it. Grandma gave me the real perfume for my B-Day and the bottle is fun, fun, fun! I started with a BC and two coats of Zoya Kiki. This hot pink is to die for, gorgeous bright pink with a purpley pink microshimmer. I them sponged two coats of China Glaze Electric Pineapple on the top half. Since I put this yellowish green over the pink it looked more orange than I had wanted. Finally I stamped the cheetah design from plate m57 with China Glaze dark purple holo Virtual Violet. I sealed with Orly Sec N Dry. 

Here is my inspiration...are you always looking for things you own to inspire manis?


  1. I love this mani!! A great color combo and a great print!

    I too look towards things I own or see while shopping as inspiration for my nails. IKEA is a huge inspiration for me... their bedding, rugs, and the children's section especially. I'm going to IKEA tomorrow so I'm looking forward to more nail inspiration while I'm there :)

  2. this is super cute i love it :) the colours are awesome
