Day 13 - Animal Print?

Welcome, welcome. This post debuts a new, rounded nail shape for me which is really sort of special because I've only been a square or squoval person my whole life! Now, on to the paint part - animal print! To be honest, I'm not really sure what animal these look like. I was hoping for zebra, but it might read more as tiger? This was my first time trying out zebra, so I think it's okay. Every time I try to use MUS Greta as an accent, it's all I can look at, so I matte-ified her but then she looked too boring, so I put some more on....eh. Now it looks weird.
Oh well! Enough words, here's some pictures:

These were inspired by this manicure by Deez Nailz and my accent nail was inspired by all the "outline" manicures I've been seeing on my tumblr dashboard lately, like these.

base: WnW Ebony Hates Chris x2
matte: Essie Matte About You
stripes: black nail art pent
accent nail: Make Up Store Greta
