Neon Leopard Print

Hey y'all! Here it is, my first attempt at leopard print! I am really happy with the results! (I apologize about the slight blur coming down from some of my nail tips, I think the neons freaked out my camera... )

I used a larger dotting tool to do the leopard spots (because I figured it would be more forgiving) and I used the same sized dotting tool for the black outline. I was really apprehensive about attempting this look, but I'm so glad I finally did. I even did both hands:

If you read my last post you already know I love picking colors out of a glitter polish to use on the rest of my nails, and this was no exception! I recently purchased a bottle of Serum No. 5 Lei Down the Law and had to try it out. I love all the neon micro glitters, and that polish also glows in the dark!! Unfortunately, my pictures of the glowy goodness did not come out, but Sarah over at Chalkboard Nails took beautiful pictures you can see here

I started with two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls on all of my nails as the base color.
Here are the other colors I used:
China Glaze I'm With The Lifeguard (green)
Sinful Colors Fusion Neon (pink)
Sinful Colors Savage (blue)
Wet N' Wild Black Creme (black)

I realized that the beauty of leopard print is that it is supposed to be imperfect. I cannot wait to try more color combinations! Thanks for stopping by! ♥

All polishes purchased by me, all opinions are my own.
