Freehand Giraffe Print

So these were pretty easy to do, just took a lot of drying time. I wanted to do something with neutral tones and after having purchased some polishes from (e.l.f.), I went with these giraffe nails! I was originally going to try to the wood-grain stamp from my Winstonia nail plates, but after a few tests with it, my polishes didn't really stamp well with it. I guess the formula isn't suited for it. Normally my silvers are best for stamping.

 Pictured is two coats of Kalahari Kiss by China Glaze, with freehand giraffe spots painted on with a dotting tool using e.l.f.'s Chocolate.
 Also including my right hand because it turned out so well! Also, my top coat (Out the Door) is never this shiny. Maybe it's because I used a lot more than I usually do? I didn't want it to smudge my giraffe spots, so I used more than I usually would...but it turned out a lot more shiny for these!
