The One With the Random Leopard Manicure

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today??  It's Thursday but thanks to this holiday week, it feels like a Wednesday.  Don't get me wrong, I love the three day weekend, but it throws me all off and takes me a good few days to get used to the schedule again.  I'm not meant for days off or vacations.

The other night I had planned on swatching the new Jessica Cosmetics Into the Wild collection, but of course my migraine got in the way and I had no want to do my nails at all.  Since I had naked nails and work the following day, I needed to do something.  So I went on Instagram and looked up BadGirlNails because Sonia has great eye-catching nail art which is quick and easy.  A few weeks ago, she posted an easy leopard design which I loved.

I switched up the color and re-created the design, and within a half hour I was done with all 10 nails and ready to rest my migrained head.  You can also thank the migraine for me not having this post up yesterday.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • China Glaze - Pinking Out the Window
  • Zoya - Tomoko
  • OPI - My Vampire is Buff
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
China Glaze Pinking Out the Window is new to my collection.  I bought it a few months ago during a Sally Beauty BOGO sale when I was stocking up on some of my old favorites.  It was just sitting there on the shelf calling my name.  It's a pretty light pink shade which has a coral tint to it.  Two coats and complete coverage.  After the first coat, I thought that I was going to have to do three because it was very sheer.  It built up very nicely though.

My Vampire is Buff is my all time favorite OPI nude polish.  I was going to use Pale to the Chief from the new collection, but went with this oldie but goodie.  Two coats, full coverage.  Perfect base for a leopard design!

What do you think?  Fan of this look?  Something you think you'll do?

Tomorrow I'll be using this manicure to do a comparison of a matte and shiny top coat so come on back for that!!

Until next time, <3.
