Summer Leopard Gradient

The Shutterbug said I could use bright colors as the weekend is upon us so here is the design I came up with for the Gradient challenge. I knew I wanted to do animal print with a gradient background but couldn’t decide on a color scheme until I saw this picture.

These are so cool looking! I would never wear them myself I don’t think, but on my younger sister they work very well. I used Caronia products for this mani. I started with two coats of Sweet Surprise (yellow) and then sponged with Sweet Surprise and Sun Kissed (orange). Then I used Baby Pink and Black Velvet for the spots. Aren’t they neat? We think so!

More animal print

You are going to notice in our time together that I love animal print on nails. Leopard print nails are super cute and can be done so many ways. I did these on my sister and it was lovely.

The colors I used were all easily available locally in the Philippines:

Bobbie – Touch of beige
Bobbie – Gingerbread
Chic – Black Velvet

The way gingerbread glitters adds a nice touch.
I hope y’all like it.

Colorful animal print

This has to be one of my favorite looks ever! This was so fun to wear and so easy to do. I started with two coats of Caronia’s white and used 5 different colors and a dotting tool to make random blobs in a random pattern. It is important to make sure you have blobs and not dots because if your spots are too perfectly shaped then it will not look like leopard print. 🙂

You can use any color you like but the colors I used are
China Glaze – For Audrey (US brand)
Sinful Colors – Amethyst (US brand)
Sinful Colors – Why not (US brand)
Cover Girl – Sassy Strawberry 523 (US brand)
Enchanted – Orange (local brand)

I was going to try neons but I don’t have any true neons. I suppose I will raid my sister’s stash sometime and do this with neons.

After I placed all my blobs I took my Chic Black Velvet and the smallest dotting tool I have to complete the look. I waited a few minutes before applying top coat and then made sure to “float” the brush so as to preserve my fun nail art. I enjoyed this look so much and I hope you do too.
