26 Great Nail Art Ideas: Animal Print in the Wrong Colors

Greetings and Nailutations,

Today I am posting a fun mani for a prompt with 26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Animals Print In The Wrong Colors.  I also wanted to pair it with some neons for All About The Stamp 80's Neon Challenge.  Combine those two ideas and you get....BOOM - in your face neon leopard nails!

Let's get to the details.

Products used:
Polish 'M - Harlequin (press sample)
Bliss Polish - Bebe En La Playa
Clear Jelly Stamper - Big Bling Stamper (press sample)
China Glaze - Fairy Dust
Lantern & Wren - Mani Defender (press sample)
Moonflower Polish - Noche (acquired from Lantern & Wren)
Glisten and Glow - Top Coat
It Girl Nail Art - IG112 Plate (press sample)

Pointer/middle fingers have 2 coats of Bebe En La Playa and ring/pinky have 2 coats of Harlequin.  I used IG112 for the leopard pattern and Noche along with the Bing Bling Stamper to create a fun pattern.  I had to top that with some Fairy Dust and then added a top coat.

The 80's were my childhood (well and the 90's).  I have fun photos of neon clothes as a kid.  Did you rock neon pattern in the 80's?  Were you even alive in the 80's?

Happy Polishing,
Kristi aka BeginNails


  1. What a cool design. Not sure I'd wear it for more than a day but it would be attention getting for that day.

  2. Neon animal print is the way to go! I'm a 90's kid, but I didn't rock the neons. My Mum was the baby-pink-powder-blue kinda girly dresser so those were my shades at the time LOL.

  3. Animal prints are awesome for nails but neon leopard, yes!!

  4. I didn't have very many neon items but the ones I had were not my doing haha

  5. I only ever like animal print when it's in the wrong colours.

  6. Can never go wrong with leopard!!

  7. Love this! I'm not huge into animal prints but neon and glitter are wins for me. I am a '90s kid -- born in '85, my earliest memories are from around '89 -- and these definitely would have matched my style at the time (vintage hand-me-downs, ha!).


Thank you for your comment. :)
