Leopard Print

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!

I have some nail art to share with you today, yayyyy!!!  I have a dress with leopard print that I've been staring at and thinking, that would look really nice on my nails.  So a couple of weeks ago, I finally had a chance to work on something.  I tested the mani out on my nail wheel first and had a few variations.  Thanks to the help of my IG buddies, I chose the final design and tried it out.

I started off with Sally Hansen Diamond Strength as my base.  I then added two coats of Fingerpaints Blank Canvas Cream, one of my favorite neutral cremes.  I then sponged Aldo Chocolate Factory onto the nail for a gradient effect.  Next, I added one coat of Essie Shine of the Times over the nail. How I love this flaky polish!  It gives such a beautiful shine and sparkle.  Finally I used my Milani black nail art pen for the spots and finished it off with Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.  Here is the result!

I was so in love with this mani!!  I literally couldn't stop staring at my nails.  I also got a lot of compliments on it.  I really liked the way it turned out.

What do you guys think of this one?  Have you tried anything like it before?
