The One With the Leopard Manicure I'm Pretty Sure I've Already Done

Nothing to Disclose

Good Morning and Happy Friday!  I realized I have failed yet again at posting to the blog.  And on top of it, I'm again behind when it comes to editing nail photos.  I'm planning on spending this weekend inside and just working on the blog, my nail polish storage, and catching up on some much needed sleep.

Today's design is a fun little leopard manicure, which as the title states, I'm pretty sure I've already done.  It's one that I absolutely love because it's one of those color combinations that I normally do not attract to.  The subtle gradient I feel really makes it.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • Sally Hansen - Sweet Tea
  • ORLY - White Tips
  • Some random gold polish'
Sweet Tea by Sally Hansen really is one of my favorite polishes.  It's such a gorgeous peach color which applies completely in two coats.  That's impressive since I typically find that polishes in this shade usually are extremely patchy and take at least three coats to have full coverage.  It worked wonderfully for the gradient with the white polish.

When that gradient was just how I wanted it, I went through with a dotting tool and added the gold centers for the leopard design.  I then went through with a tooth pick and painted the black accenting.  I know that some use a small paint brush or the dotting tool to complete the details, but I find I have more control with the tooth pick.  Plus, I can make it look more "leopard-y".

What do you think?  Fan of this look?

Until next time, <3.
