The One With the Leopard Accent

9:00:00 AM

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.
