Luxe Leopard

Hi friends! The weather is finally hot and beautiful like it should be! Summer is going to be great, I can feel it. This week is my last official week of high school ever before exams. After that I graduate, go to prom, etc etc. Very exciting (:

So I just finished saying on Twitter that I can't do leopard/cheetah print for the life of me. The very first nail post on this blog contains the only one I've ever done, I believe. My later attempts were pretty embarrassing, especially since this print is quite elementary ): But that's all in the past now! I sat down the other day and said why not, let's give it a go, and here is the result. The mix between leopard and glitter is very luxe, I'm enjoying it (:


For the patterned nails I started off with Essie Sand Tropez. I used a small paint brush to paint on the print and filled in the spots with Nails Inc Chelsea Square. I used the same polish for the accent nails but first put a base of China Glaze Sex on the Beach.

The Nails Inc polish is a gift from my sister! She picked it up for me when she went to Boston and it's so very pretty (:

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  12. I keep thinking I'm not crazy about leopard prints, but I keep being wrong! It looks so fantastic with the glitter, Brittney--I may have no choice but to try this myself. ^_^

  13. Sometimes leopard print can be a bit wild and intimidating, but it is quite fun too! (: Looking forward to seeing your version! :D
