Summer Challenge Day 13: Animal Print


Summer Challenge Day 13: Animal Print

I hope you’re up for awesomeness today. I’ll try one of my new Japanese pretties, namely one of the PA polishes.

The bottles aren’t very big, and since I don’t know if I’ll ever get the chance to get my hands on this brand again, I decided to layer it. I chose a dark blue Essence polish, “Hard to resist”, which covered perfectly in one coat – but I applied another layer, just to give the PA the best conditions.

“Hard to resist” is a beautiful dark blue and very shimmery polish. The formula is great and drying time is fantastic. I love Essence polishes!

Two coats – no top coat yet:


I love the deepness this polish has got!

Now for the next layer – the PA with the number AA23. It looked pretty thick in the bottle, so I am sure that you can make this opaque in two coats. I’m still glad I’ve got proper underwear for it though! Application was easy, the silver bits spread out almost effortlessly, leaving the nail blue, silver and very sparkly!

Here’s one coat over “Hard to resist”, covered with one coat of Poshé topcoat:

PA AA23
 Isn’t that just gorgeous! I love it!!

But hey – we’re here for the animal print, you might say! And yes, you are indeed. I chose to use Mash plate number 39 and stamped twice – first with Barry M’s lilac foil, and then with Essence “Stamp me! Silver” stampy polish.

And here’s your animal print: Unicorns on blue and silver:


What do you think? Is that PA polish a win or what? Is it cheating to use a unicorn as the animal for animal printed nails?


You should also check out these other Danish girls’ blogs to see what they came up with for nails with animal prints on them:


Stay tuned the day after tomorrow - same bat time, same bat channel – for nails with flowers!
