Today I've decided to show you my first attempt at animal prints!
The minute I laid my hands on Blaze's Lemon Zest to Mango Chile, I knew it was perfect for a leopard mani - yellow and orange!
I used a korean nail art pen for the spots. Since I couldn't find a bright silver polish, I had to settle for a gunmetal silver for the center of the spots. Finally I topped off the mani with one coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust for that extra sparkle before sealing it with a topcoat. After all, this mani is meant to be worn out in the sun! :)
Here's a blurred picture to show the holo glitter:
Please excuse the bubbling. I should have been more patient to wait for the polish to dry! ><
Hmm... I really ought to use brighter colors for the colored spots in the future. It's hard to see it from afar.
And yes, that's the reason why I decided to call this "crouching cheetah, lurking leopard" (just like the movie - Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon)!
Apparently, the spotting pattern on leopards are more complex (says this article). So I suppose my mani is a cross between a cheetah and a leopard...
