Leopard Print

Hi everyone!  I know it's been awhile since I've posted.  I've been busy getting ready for school to start and also hunting for a new j-o-b so I haven't had as much time for blogging.  Unfortunately, this will probably be the trend for awhile, so please don't think I'm abandoning the blog.  I'll still be posting, just not as often. :)

For today's mani, I wanted to try a free-hand leopard pattern.  It didn't turn out exactly as hoped, so I wouldn't say this is leopard print, but I think I could get away with calling it leopard inspired.  :)  It's an eye-catcher too!  I've had several people comment on my nails in the past 2 days.  Also, this morning the delivery guy stopped by my office and as I was signing for the package he said, "Neat looking nails.  Did your kid help you do that?"  That may mean it's sloppy enough for a kid to have done it. :)  Go me!!!  LMAO!

Anyway, on to the manicure.  I skipped the base coat because I knew this one would need several layers.  I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors Tokyo Pearl, a pearl colored shimmer, because I needed something opaque underneath the yellow.  Then, I layered 3 coats of Color Club Volt of Light, a neon yellow with a subtle green shimmer.  I finished the look with LA Colors Art Deco in black, and then 1 layer of quick dry top coat.

Thanks for looking!  :)
