26 GNAI - Spring Animals

Wednesday, 12 April 2017

This is a post I have been meaning to catch up on since the 17th March and today I finally found the time to do it.


I currently have 3 outstanding 26 Great Nail Art Idea prompts to do (now 2) and so am pretty pleased to have this one ticked off my to do list.



When I saw the prompt Spring Animals, my heart sank. Honestly - I really didn't feel like doing them. Thankfully that mood has since passed. Does anyone else get like that with these challenges?

My Old 2015 Spring Animal Mani

As it's Easter I decided it was the perfect opportunity to recreate a spring animal/easter animal mani I created back in 2015 (see above). I much prefer the simplfied look of my updated version and I really don't like the index and pinky nails of my old version, however the beak of the chick and the buck teeth of the bunny in the older version are adorable (even if they are badly executed).



I used mostly Annika polishes for this design, all but 1 of which is from their Vintage Tea Party collection and a grey Primark polish from the Insta Girl collection.


So there we are, as I'm nearly a month late I can not include my mani in the InLinkz, however make sure you check out the other Spring Animal manis in that the bloggers who managed to do theirs on time created.

    1. Oh my, you're so organised. I write them in my diary weeks in advance and then forget about them! I'm so bad. I'm pleased you like them, it's nice to do something a little funny every now and then xx

  2. These are so adorable! I love their little googly eyes and I can imagine playing with them all day long. Seriously cute- the little flowers on the pinky/pointer just are so light and fun!

  3. These are so cute vic. Sweet little spring friends. I love the flowers. I really lile negative space nails and I think they compliment the cute animals for a fun Easter look. I hope you have Easter egg nails coming up... I'm looking forwards to seeing what other nail art you come up with.xx
