The One With the Leopard Accent

Good morning polished world!  Happy Friday!  I'm so beyond thrilled that it is Friday because this has been the longest week ever.  It all started when I came down ith an awful cold.  At first I thought it was allergies, then a sinus infection, but now I'm pretty sure it's a cold.  It has knocked me down to the point where I have felt too sick to even paint my nails.  I had the same manicure on for five days.  That's how you for sure know that I'm sick.  I'm hoping today that I feel a bit better but so far it's not looking like it will be that way.  Ugh.

So, I have this back log of posts just in case I do get sick and can't keep up on blogging.  I think right now I'm up to five posts and honestly I couldn't be happier because I didn't feel like I had to push myself to paint to keep up with blogging.  I've ignored my social networks but what can you do.

Anyways, today I'm sharing with you a manicure I did about two weeks ago.  I wanted to do something simple because it was late at night.  What's simpler than a leopard accent with some glitter and creams?

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • China Glaze - Let's Jam
  • FingerPaints - Paper Mache
  • FingerPaints - Umber-ella
I love China Glaze Let's Jam.  At first I wasn't going to get this polish because I figured I had similar purple polishes in my collection.  I'm so happy that I decided to get it because it is so unique!  It's a pretty purple with a shimmer of blue which picks up in the picture below.  In the sunlight it is gorgeous.  I need to use this for pedicures!

FingerPaints Umber-ella is such a unique polish.  It is part of the new core line for 2016 and I've had this beauty since February and totally forgot about it.  I really can't think of a way to describe this polish other than calling it sparkly sand.  Two coats were used for this manicure and I had full coverage.  I really didn't think that was going to happen since it was rather sheer on the first and I thought it would be better as a topper.  It built up though quite nicely and had such a pretty sparkle to it.  I can't wait to use this again!

What do you think?  Like this look?  Something simpler....

Here's to hoping I feel better!!

Until next time, <3.
