There's A Zoo On My Nails!

Good morning, readers! I had too much fun and had such great feedback from my Giraffe Nails post that I decided to add to the animal idea and do different zoo animals on each finger! My daughter, Hailey, LOVED them!! They are kind of like "animal skittles"(thanks, Heidi, for the term lol) and I like how they turned out. My husband told me I should do my right hand nails with the food for the zoo animals to coordinate with my left hand. So you will see my right hand as well in this post!

My left hand zoo animal nails:

Thumb: Elephant, Index: Monkey, Middle: Giraffe, Ring: Panda, Pinky: Lion



 My right hand animal food nails:
Thumb: Peanuts, Index: Bananas, Middle: Tree branch, Ring: Bamboo, Pinky: Steak(don't make fun of my "heart" looking steak hahaha)



 On to the paired up nails:

Peanuts for the Elephant


Bananas for the Monkey

Tree branch for the Giraffe

Bamboo for the Panda

Steak for the Lion(figured it was less gruesome than a cute little Gazelle)

  40. YOU'RE the one who did these nails! I've seen them circling around we heart it since forever ago, and never ending up tracking them back to the nail artist. These are amazing. When I was semi-new to the nail world I copied them - hope you don't mind! Yours are so much better lol, I didn't have most of the colours at the time and mixed all the colours, and had no dotting tools... but here's what I ended up with:

    I'm kind of embarrassed... that's such an old post and they're so very average, but I like seeing people try my manis so I thought you might too :)
