40 Great Nail Art Ideas – animal

animal is a hard prompt – the first things that pop into my mind are the myriad of “animal print” manicures that i’ve seen. they’re fairly simple, which is why they’ve been done so many times. but they’ve also been done so many times!

so i tried to think of something unusual. when i had this prompt during my 31-day challenge i modeled my nails after a green rose chafer beetle. that was fun and different. and i wanted to be fun and different again.

then it hit me – use your spirit animal! which is a unicorn. they bleed glitter and fart rainbows. and impale their enemies with a giant sparkly shaft on their faces. what more could anyone ask for?

i started with a shimmery white basecoat and topped it off with iridescent flakies. my accent nail is a beautiful sparkly unicorn braid.

i’m a little sad about the pictures – it was tough getting a shot of these nails. the sparkles and flakies on the white base almost always showed up as solid white. :( and it’s been cloudy since i painted them so can’t try any sunshine photography…
