Feels like it was only yesterday when I posted my Chinese New Year mani, but I have a few chips on my right hand already so I decided to take them all off. Boooo! I guess that’s what I get for opening a can of Diet Coke and doing dishes without gloves (rookie mistake). It’s really too bad because I have one more family dinner to attend and I was hoping to show off to my aunties. Oh well, they’ll get something else… Leopard!
This is another one of those trends that have already come but hopefully not gone because I am just catching up! I’ve wanted to try leopard nails for a while now. I’ve seen a lot of takes on the design from all the nail blogs so I was super excited to give this a try myself. Also, I’m very happy to tell you that this is the first time I’ve done a nail art mani without having to find a tutorial beforehand! I just Googled some images to make sure I had the right idea and went for it. The base is Cosmetic Art Sweet Spot and the leopard spots are Color Club Earthy Angel although I used my current favorite metallic, Revlon Gold Coin, on my ring fingers so they’re not all the same. Oh and the black lines were drawn with a nail art brush with Rimmel’s Black Satin.
I loooooove how this turned out. From far away they look like stick-on nail decals. :)
I remember telling a friend once to be brave because I had all the confidence in her to overcome her challenge. “Less meow and more rawwr”. This is how I’m feeling these days so maybe I instinctively went for this design tonight. “Nothing to lose, everything to gain.”
