This is my first attempt at freehand leopard print! It seems odd that this is something I haven’t tried before, I think it’s because I have quite a few stamping plates with a leopard pattern.
I’m pretty happy with how this turned out, it’s not perfect, and my silver lines are a little bit wobbly, but I think that adds to the charm lol!
This is the stuff I used,
- Sinful Colors – Mauve
- Color Club – The Uptown
- Chanel – Vendetta
- China Glaze – I’d Melt Fop You
- Seche Vite
- Illamasqua Matte Topcoat
- Thin Nail Art Brush
This took less than 10 minutes to finish, I think if I had chosen to do smaller spots it would have taken quite a bit longer. 🙂
I have to say I’m feeling a lot better, I think the horrid ills have finally gone! Yay! 😀

Half Moon Nails
Here are my half moon nails for day 18!
For this I used
- Black Magic from Revlon
- Aglaia from 2True
- Konad SP in Black
- Pure Midnight From Sally Hansen
- Seche Vite
Starting with a couple of coats of black magic, I stamped the bottom half of my nail, with Agiaia, I used Moyou Pro plate 05 which is a standard size plate from them, it’s way too narrow and short for me to use as a full nail, but it’s fine to use sideways for half a nail lol!
Then I applied a thin coat of Seche Vite, when that was dry I used ring binder hole reinforcements to mask off the half moons, then sponged on some more Black Magic and removed the sticky rings.
Then for the tips of my nails I sponged on more Aglaia and some Pure midnight, I was going for a gradient but it didn’t really work very well
Then I applied another coat of Seche, waited for it to dry then stamped using the same image, but with Konad SP Black and then a final coat of SV.
Moyou Pro 05
With all of the topcoat I used for this I’m honestly surprised that it didn’t shrink a lot more!

Here’s my Blue Leopard French Tip nails I painted a couple of days ago!
I used Revlon Black Magic as the base colour, then using my trusty french tip guides I stamped the leopard print on tips of my nails, I find that this is much easier than trying to get french tip shaped stamps lined up!
The blue polish I used is Cold Metal from Color Club. It’s amazing for stamping! 😀 then I added the sparkly rhinestones to my ring finger I used tweezers to position them in a dab of wet topcoat.
I finished off my nails with a coat of Seche Vite!

First of all I would like to say sorry about the lack of posts for the last few days, I have been filled with flu Ugh I hate being ill
I to start with I thought that I would be able to keep up with my blog posts but after I stuck tissue to my face with wet nail polish while sneezing I thought it would be best to leave it for a bit Lol!
Anyway, Snow Leopard Nails!

For this I used two coats of Ivory Skull from Sally Hansen (I love the name of this polish so much). Then I used a sponge to add some patches of Couture Grey from Maybelline and Night Moves from Barielle Shades. For the stamping I used Black Magic from Revlon.

Glitter Leopard Gradient Nails
I started with one coat of Amethyst from Sinful Colors, this polish is a really nice colour, it’s a mid purple creme, (I’ll do a swatch at some point) I used it as a base colour to tone down the very bright pink polish I chose for the gradient.
For the sponged gradient I used Black on Black also from Sinful Colors and Ulterior Motive from Color Club, which is a fantastic bright magenta pink jelly with iridescent pink and blue micro glitter. The gradient took two coats, I had to work very quickly as the glitter kept sticking to the sponge!
For the leopard print I used Moyou XL Pro Collection 04, and Konad special polish in black.
I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite. Not including the clean up this only took me 15 minutes!
