NOTD–Purple and Pink Leopard Print

Hi Lacqueristas!

This is my second attempt at leopard print nails since last year and I am pretty happy with it. I seem to have spatial issues when it comes to leopard spot placement though…it always seems either too crowded or too sparse.

To begin my manicure, I started off with Julep’s “Anne”, which I had ordered when they had their Oscar promotion, and is a lavender cream. It was opaque in two coats. Next, I used a dotting tool to randomly distribute spots with OPI’s “You’re a Pisa Work” and the outlined the spots with black acrylic paint. I just love how loud the colours are together!

    1. Not too long actually! First I painted on the purple, then I applied the pink dots with a dotting tool making random oblong shapes over each nail and then I used a paint brush to draw the black outlines. Nothing is really precise which is what's fun about this manicure, unlike drawing lines.
