I love animal prints. However, as we near Halloween, I'm beginning to question the seasonal appropriateness of cheetah and zebra print. Thus was born the wolf fur manicure.
Here's what I used:
- Sally Hansen Black Out - Fur Texture
To get the look I started with a grey base. I decided to use Sally Hansen Eel Skin. Next, starting from the bottom, I carefully brushed on my first layer of the fur texture. To do this I used a thin brush and applied the polish only lightly. I wanted it to look a bit rough.
After allowing the first layer of texture to set, I applied another layer using a different color. I overlapped the layers slightly. I repeated these steps, alternating between colors until the entire nail was covered.
I didn't stick to any set pattern of application. I just went with what I thought would contrast well with the layer below it. I found the inclusion of Essie No Place Like Chrome to be indispensable. The silver really made the design pop and offered excellent contrast between the colors.
So, what do you think? Is wolf the new cheetah?
