Giraffe or Turtle?! You tell me!

Hey guys! Here today with what I consider a bit of a confusing post :P

I recently got the new set of Bundle Monster plates in the mail, so I've started to play with them a bit. I'm still a newb when it comes to stamping, but it really is fun. I guess it's just like everything else, practice makes perfect!

I had never done a giraffe print, because let's face it, it's not the easiest thing to do by hand, so when I saw there was a giraffe and the negative of it on BM-313 I was excited!

I started with two coats of Color Club Almost Famous, then I used Sinful Colors Mercury Rising (ugh I'm still mad at them!! and this was done before the whole stealing from our community thing) for the stamp (BM-313). So my idea was to do every other nail with negative image, that way it was the same but different all at the same time.

So why the name of the post? When I posted pics of this in one of the polish groups I'm in on FB a few of the girls said the ones with more brown look like a turtle shell! So of course once I read that I couldn't unsee it from my nails! But honestly it's true, it does! It got me thinking that I might actually do a turtle shell mani now with different colors :P

So what do you guys see?

Second picture isn't color accurate as I'm still having some issues with my camera **grr**

What do you guys think?

Until next time! Happy painting!

Pin It!


  1. It looks great either way but your right the lighter color looks like giraffe to me and the darker looks like a turtle :)

  2. great stamping job! I think the ones on the pointer and ring finger look more like a turtle shell, and the ones on middle finger and pinky look more like giraffe...altho giraffe markings aren't usually that uniform... looks cool anyway!

  3. I think the darker ones look more like giraffe print. With some greens this would be an awesone tortoise shell mani tho :)

  4. well, it depends on the color you use. If are oranges it's a giraffe,if are greens it's a turtle :P


I love to get feedback! Your comments are important to me, and I read every one :)
