Quit monkeying around!

Good morning!

Ok back story time ;) Last night I was home unusually early so for once I actually had some time to do some good old fashioned nail art! Happy dance!! My problem? I had no idea what to do -_- So I took to Twitter (if you guys don't follow me on there do it ;) @pinkandpolish) and asked for some suggestions. The lovely Swishie Nails tweeted me back and suggested a monkey! So I set off to google to get some inspiration and found THIS picture and went to work!

Oh and if you haven't visited Swishie Nails you totally have to!! She is SO sweet and her blog is fantastic! So go show it some love ;)

Next on the agenda... I would like to inform you before you see my nails that I had to file them down quite a bit the other night :( *sigh* I just couldn't keep staring at that broken corner! LOL So I present my new shorties and monkeys! :) 


Colors used:
- China Glaze Agro
- Wet n Wild I Got A New Com-Pewter
- Zoya Mitzi
- Black Acrylic Paint
- White Acrylic Paint
- Brown Acrylic Paint
- Tan Acrylic Paint
- Yellow Acrylic Paint













Love them! I used the saran wrap technique on all of my nails to get the different greens and "jungle" look. And I did the monkeys freehand. It feels good to do some freehand nail art again I really wish I had time to do more lol!

So what do you guys think?

Thanks for reading and make sure you enter my awesome giveaway HERE :)
