Purple Leopard Print

Short post today as I've got a million things to do, like tidy the house, give the puppy a bath and generally sort my life out! But first I wanted to share my first foray into the world of animal print. Pretty pumped that I've finally tried my hand at leopard spots! And as my new Art Deco nail polish arrived this week it seemed the perfect excuse to get involved. I thought it would be quite diffcult, but it was surprisingly easy to do- and weirdly my right hand is much better than my left! I often find that, maybe because I spend more time when using my left hand and concentrate more, as it's not my dominant hand.

I used Barry M Berry Ice Cream for the base coat (I know I use it constantly but it's SUCH a beautiful colour, and it applies like a dream) then randomly blobbed some white nail polish on (No. 7's Snowflake). Once that was dry I used my Art Deco Black nail polish to squiggle lines around the white, the messier the better as that makes it look more natural. Cleanup around the edges, top coat of Seche Vete to smooth it all out, done. Simples!

I'd really like to try it with the traditional leopard colours- if anyone has any suggestions for polishes that folow the colour scheme let me know, recommendations welcome!

Bye for now,
