#MTVnailChallenge: 3. Yellow & Animal Print

Good morning loves! Knowing you guys, you are probably all super rocking so I'm not even going to ask! So let's just get right into it, shall we?

Firstly, we have three people that have joined us in the #MTVnailChallenge! *gasp* We are taking over the world people! Kicking ass and painting nails! Yeah! So just giving a shout out and a warm fuzzie “Welcome!” to Megan from Mama Zombie Mumbles, Tyler from Polished Tickles & Beauty and Jade from Passion For Polish. Please go check these ladies out to see what they have come up with so far!

3 . Yellow & Animal Print

Nail Polishes used:

  • Tip Top Nail Chic Lemon Fuel
  • Tip Top Nail Chic Sun Kissed
  • Tip Top Nail Addict Coffee Bean

Tools Used:

  • Thin nail art brush

I kind of struggled to come up with an idea for this theme! I didn't want to do any more leopard print or tiger/zebra print for now because I've done both quite recently, even though I could've brought in some sick color combinations with leopard print and yellow (Can you say “pastel”?!) so I decided to go for a simple giraffe mani!

I started out by laying down 2 coats of Tip Top Lemon Fuel. When this was dry I just added 1 coat of Tip Top Sun Kissed over the base to make it pop nicely! I went in with Tip Top Coffee Bean and my thin nail art brush, which is dying on me by the way *sobs* and made the outline for the giraffe prints. Then I just filled them in using the same brush and Tip Top Coffee Bean. To make it look a bit neater, I just went in again with the thin nail art brush and Tip Top Sun Kissed between some of lines.

I don't mind how this came out but in my mind it could've been a whole lot better and neater! But practise makes perfect! So off to the drawing board (or nail beds) we go again!

Please go have a looksie at all the other girls attempts today! You will not be sorry, their work is always spot on and gorgeous!

Lots of mad love...


  1. I absolutely love this! How gorgeous is that 'coffee bean'!! The shimmer!!!

    Interesting that you and V both had giraffe. I feel all left out and stuff!! :P

    1. Thank you M! Coffee Bean is a pretty one! Need to find more ways to use her! Lol

      Dude, I promise I had no idea! But don't feel left out! We love you! :D

  2. Awww gorgeous Thea. Love the giraffe print.

    1. Thank you Lynn! :D Saw your Coffee Bean swatch and was looking for a way to use it ASAP! So this was the perfect excuse for me!

  3. Pretty. Perfection leaves no room for improvement, so nothing wrong with anything here. Love it. You have motivated me to play around with my own nails. Love you. A

    1. Also very true! And life would be super boring if everything was perfect! Thank you A! Love you too! xx

  4. This is awesome!! I love how people are straying away from leopard and zebra and doing all sorts of different manis! (I'm actually referring to the manis I've seen for the 31 days challenge when they asked for animal print). That being said, I probably would've copped out and done a leopard print myself.

    Great job!

    1. I know! I like it when people think out of the box and the options are actually pretty endless if you're not limited with your colors! Nah, you would've done something awesome!

      Thank you sweety!

  5. Giraffe FTW!!!!
    Love this T!

    1. Gaaaah, GIRAFFE! Yours kicked ass though V! But thank you for the love! :P
