Using NYC Colors nail polish in Pink Promenade Creme (109) and Empire State Blue (140) and a bit of L.A Colors Art Deco Nail Art Lacquer in black I was successfully able to recreate animal print nails. Even though I still really want a nail pen, this shows that you are able to recreate the same effects with fine tipped nail polish (a.k.a the L.A. Colors Art Deco.)
I am a fan of L. A. Colors when it comes to nail polish stuff. They have a variety of colors that come on easy and smooth. Recently... as in today, I tried the Art Deco Nail Art Lacquer by L. A. Colors, which is basically a very fine tip nail polish or lacquer made for nail design.
When it comes to nail design, I am not the best by far, which is why I would not be able to do any complicated nail designs with this. It's a bit too fine tipped, I had to cut the very tip because it was basically two brush strands. After I cut it, it worked okay. Don't just take my word on this, I've seen other people who have designed some really cool stuff on their nails using this stuff. I personally want a nail design pen.
I was trying to go for animal print... BUT I got dots. I still like it.

I love the trend of accenting one of your nails. It creative, cute and bold. I think it's best if the accent nail is a color different; as in an opposite color (like blue and orange, pink and green... you get me?), rather than a texture different (i.e. glitter or print).
I also like the idea of accenting the accent nail even more by putting a cute funky ring on it.
