I do have one guilty pleasure, for all my slick modern outward appearance,
deep inside I love animal prints.
I think it was bred into by my parents, who both own silk/polyester leopard shirts. I don't think I had any say in this biologically ingrained need. I only let this deep embed secret rear at it's head on special occasions. Inspired by all these gorgeous leopard print designs like Melissa's at The Daily Nail (See them here.), I decided to try my hand at a cheetah print instead.
See here how I accomplished this:
I used my CND Stickey basecoat, 2 coats of Finger Paints White (Sorry sticker fell off not sure the exact name, all I know is it's "white"). I then used facial "wedge" sponges with Essence Colour&Go Sundancer and China Glaze Papaya Punch to create the gradient background.
I stamped the Bundle Monster Plate BM-225 cheetah print on with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Black Out. A coat of Seche Vite and I was out the door.
I really love this for the beach. It's super bright and obnoxious, but in a good way.
Love and chip-free nail polish to you all!
