#33DC Day 15: Animals

Today's theme got me into thinking. I am really bad in creating faces and animals, so this was tough. I tried creating some animal prints, but I wasn't happy with that. I created some cute hippos...


For this manicure, I used Lakme 9 to 5 Coffee Break as a base on my nails.


I freehand the outline for hippos and then filled it with different shades using a small dotting tool. 
After the shades dried I added the required details with a small detailing brush. For the detailing (eyes,face and mouth) I used acrylic paints. After the detailing I redid the outline.


Shades Used

Pink: Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink
Green: Zoya Wednesday
Yellow: Maybelline Sweet Sunshine
Blue: China Glaze Hanging in the balance


I love the pointer nail; the pink hippo turned out real cute! To finish off the nails I top coated them with Seche Vite.

Thanks for stopping by. Stay beautiful...
