Leopard Print

Time flies by just too fast. :/ I don't have a lot of time for nails but I finally took some time to remove my previous manicure and make something quick but cute. :) I'm in a brown period lately so I wanted to have something brown on my nails too and what's better than leopard print? :) 

I started with one coat of BS and Essence - Zulu (light gray creme with plastic finish) just to give my nails a color. I decided to sponge Desert Fox (greyish brown), also from Essence, and Warm & Fozzie (brown copperish duochrome) from OPI to get a little shimmery look. :) I stamped leopard pattern with BPS M57, as I already told you that the patterns are small so I had to double or triple, but I didn't have problems with placing the pattern to look like I didn't have to stamp twice. :) I added some dots with 2030 from China Glaze - gold metallic color and a layer of TC to finish my whole manicure. 
When I made it yesterday I wasn't sure if I like but as soon as I saw it on sun, I love it! :)

What do you think? I will probably wear it for whole this week. <3 Do you like wearing animal prints? Which one is your favorite? Mine are probably leopard and zebra. :)

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day! :rainbow

    1. I'm wearing leopard print on all my nails for the first time. :$ I'm sure you can do nails like this without a mistake. :) I love these kinds of patterns, they're really easy to stamp twice or even more if you need to. You should try more often and show us the results! :)

    1. It looked like it was something missing when I just stamped them. :$ Thanks! I usually don't match my nails with my outfits, but because I'm wearing lots of brown pieces lately, I wanted to do nails like that too. :P And I must say I like it. :P
