I discovered this Leopard Manicure tutorial on the China Glaze website and just had to share it with all of you.
Check out the video – it is a lot of fun and really allows people to be creative.
I certainly chose more neutral colours than what they used in the tutorial. But I think the brights would certainly be more suiting come Spring time.
I used Swing Baby by China Glaze as my base. Then did my spots with In Awe of Amber by China Glaze and outlined them with Orly’s Liquid Vinyl.
I used a Nail Dotting Tool for the black – purchased at Sally Beauty Supply store, but if you don’t have one, try using a toothpick.
Do you see yourself trying this out? I sure hope you answer yes and have some fun with this!
Today I felt like nail marbling and although I wasn’t trying to create what I will fondly refer to here on out as “Peppermint Nails” I sort of stumbled upon this look by accident. Because “Heart of Africa” and “Watermelon Rind” nail polishes work so nice in the water, I decided I’d put them together and because I just picked up “Swing Baby” I wanted to include it. As soon as I saw the first nail come out, I couldn’t think about anything other than “that looks like a candy cane – perfect!” So here we are.
To note: I did not use the white base coat on my nails. This wasn’t because I thought it would look better, but simply out of sheer laziness. It was already late and I wanted to save a step. I have no doubt that the white base coat would make these Peppermint Nails really pop.
