Manic Monday: Summer French Leopard

Good evening readership! I was actually just discussing one of these polishes today so I decided this manicure would be today’s subject! I used a 4 polish combination of both indie and mainstream to create this dazzling (and freshly scented!) masterpiece!

I really love using leopard print in my manicures. It always looks fancy and complicate but is actually very simple to execute with a dotting tool. 

What are your faves from these brands? Any other cool leopard idea to try?

Missing Manicures!

I have been idle and not showing you my lacquerista art lately! Let’s play catch up, shall we?

Unfortunately this one is SO OLD that I can’t tell you what colors I used. I can tell you this was my first serious playtime with my dotting tools. I’m super happy with how the little hearts turned out! Also it’s hard to tell but my thumbs have glitter on the french tip region!

I got wise and started taking pictures so at least you would know what brands were used! This picture is precleanup. It didnt turn out the way i would like and Essie SOTT doesn’t photograph well on potato, but this was supposed to be sunset and it was my first sponge gradient experiment. not a total failure.

My first Rainbow Honey polish! this color is the kraken. Plus one of the Ariel sephora polishes, and a polish from the Julep champagne trio. Freehand cloudstyle manicure.

Stripe tape FTW! And doesnt that Skinn nude shade match my nailbed perfectly? It doesn’t even look like polish. its my MNBB color. I had a little bit of messiness on my right hand due to being righthanded but it kinda looked like I meant to do that so aherm….i *meant* to do that.

There you have it! I have more coming your way, don’t you worry! I have been a very busy blogger this summer and I can’t wait to show you what else I have been up to!
