Lounging in Leopard Print

Hi guys! I was feeling a little stuck for inspiration as to what to do with my nails today. So I decided to try out the ol’ faithful leopard print, but with a new twist!

I decided to try and replicate the pattern on my cardigan, sort of a grey and white patchy background with the black print on top. So I thought I’d give the tissue-blotting method a try! I started by painting a base coat of grey, a George nail varnish in colour 64, Witchcraft.

Once it was completely dry, I painted each nail one by one in white, immediately blotting most of it off with a scrunched up price of tissue paper before the white could dry. This alone left a pretty cool effect! Take a look!

Then, once this layer was dry, I stamped on my fave leopard print, using the Konad classics, image plate m57 and black special stamping polish.

Seal with a top coat of Seche Vite, (the single best top coat in the world), and voila! Printy Perfection!
