Week 2 of the March N.A.I.L. Linkup is AQUA. I picked through my stash for the best aqua shades (ironically two of them had the word MINT in them.. go figure) and I came up with this cute leopard print. I only tried leopard one time before, using water-based paints and only on 2 fingers, so hopefully this came out okay!
What I’m wearing:
base color ♥ wet n wild I Need a Refresh-Mint
blue sponged on tips ♥ NYC Skyline Blue
silver spots ♥ OPI Push and Shove
teal glitter ♥ Sinful Colors Lush Life
black striper polish ♥ L.A. Colors Art Deco in black
I’m excited to wear my new OPI Push and Shove mirror polish! I haven’t worn it on it’s own yet, and since I’ve been dying to try it, I decided to make my leopard spots with it! To make my silver spots look even cooler I thought I’d add my Sinful Colors teal glitter in little blobs over top… but unfortunately the sinful formula wasn’t dense enough with glitter. So I ended up lightly swiping the glitter over the entire nail instead. Not really the look I was going for since I really only wanted it over the silver, but as I always say… it’s good to want things! Other than that little change in plans, the leopard print was pretty easy to do. Now I wanna try it again!
I hope you like my first ‘real’ attempt at leopard print! You can see the other aqua designs right here:

Cool leopard print :), for some reason the inlinkz in unclickable for me here. :s
thanks for the heads up…i just fixed it 🙂
I love this one !! You are so clever !!! I have learned so much about nail art since finding your site , and even though my nails are really short, they just break and do not grow out nice, so it is easier to keep them short, and I do not polish them , I look forward to each post and seeing what you are going to do next !!! This is one of my favorites !!!
