Summer Challenge--A Day at the Zoo!

Hi Readers!  I wanted to do something different and funky for a day at the zoo theme so I hauled out my suedes again and went for some matte stamping as well.  I'm sure if I like this one but it is what it is!  I started with a gradient of OPI We'll Always Have Paris suede and Lincoln Park After Dark suede.  It's really lovely
I love the dark tips!
To give it that "zoo" theme I stamped over it with a zebra print
I messed up a bit on the pinkie but since I don't wear a mani for more than a day usually I let it slide lol!  That and taking off just the top layer on a suede is hard!

This is definitely a "wild" look!

What are you thoughts about this matte gradient and matte stamping?? Like it, love it, or loathe it??

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!


  1. Really love the gradient and the matte. Not sure I like the stamping, but that's more probably because I'm not a big fan of animal print. Lol.

  2. I love the look but I think it would drive me crazy to go without topcoat! I usually SV and then do a matte clear coat after.

    What's your secret for taking off just the top layer if it's not a suede?

  3. Ashleigh I didn't hate it but I sure didn't love it lol!
