I think Fall 2013 is turning into my favorite season for fashion!  … Probably ’cause it’s all about Animal Prints!!! WoooHooo!!!

As you know, many high end fashion labels have “lower end” lines designed to appeal to the every day customer.  Making it more affordable to wear those fancy brand names we all know and love!  Valentino has done it with RED, MICHAEL Michael Kors, MARC by Marc Jacobs and here’s Moschino Cheap and Chic a more affordable line of clothes by Moschino where ANYTHING GOES!

Here’s a fun mix & match, outfit for fall.  A chunky animal print knit with side arm zippers paired with a sporty, short hot pink skirt accented with 3 metal pins!  I’m loving this look!  It’s flirty and fun… I could definitely see myself wearing this runway look around town. 😉

Step 1

Start off with solid nails.  White & red for the accent nail

step 1- Moschino CheapChic

Step 2
Daub spots of grey on your white nails using the brush from your lacquer.  You don’t need to be perfect because you’ll be covering up part of the spots with black.


Step 3
Use your Nail Art Duo Pen and create a few irregular “C” shapes on and around the gray spots.
(My nail art duo pen recently broke on me, & I haven’t had time to go out and buy a new one, so I used a striping brush instead.  I’d have to say.. if I had the pen it would have been a lot quicker)

Step 4
Seal in your design and all nails including your hot pink nail with 1 coat of your favorite dry fast top coat.  I used Seche Vite.


Add Your Bling!
Step 5
Once your nails are dry now it’s time to bling out your accent nail!

Add 3 dots of Elmer’s clear glue onto your red nail.  Using tweezers or a rhinestone picker grab and place each rhinestone onto your nail.

step 3

Voilla!  There you have it!  Animal Print & Bling!! Such a great combination!
