Pastel Animal Print + Lime Crime Crema de Limon

I tried animal print for the first time. I think it turned out OK, but it's not as cool as some I've seen on the net. I used a base of Lime Crime Crema de Limon, spots of Lime Crime Parfait Day, and accent of Lime Crime Once in a Blue Mousse.

I thought maybe some glitter would be fun, so I added H&M Aqua Splash over the blue. The glitter came out a little sparse so I wasn't super thrilled with it, but I also wasn't about to keep painting on layers, so here's what I got for ya!

Here is the base color alone. I had a little trouble with the formula, but I have that with most yellows. This went on better than most and is a nice, bright true yellow that doesn't lean orange. Most of the swatches I've seen are really pastel, but this one was bright for me. Can there be such a thing as a bright pastel?

  2. I know exactly what you mean by bright pastel! I picked up Lime Crime's Patelchio (say that three times fast!) and it is shockingly bright yet soft. I was surprised as well!

  5. Ah it's so pretty! I'm such a fail at anything animal print on nails. I can paint the animal but no way can I do the print! It doesn't even make sense :P I love your manicure. I wish my nails looked like this now :(
