NOTD – Green Leopard from The Nail Buff

NOTD – Green Leopard from The Nail Buff

by on September 27, 2017 · 8 comments

Today’s post comes from one of my favourite nail bloggers The Nail Buff. We are both cuckoo for the colour green and I think this look that she’s created is flippin’ amazing – so over to you my delightful Scandinavian blogger!

Hello lovely skin scrubbers, and thank you Miss A for letting me write a post for your gorgeous blog (while Jamie is finally making a respectable woman out of you). Skins scrubs was one of the very first blogs I started following, and is still one of my firm favourites :)

and I share a passion for green, so today I have a green design to show you.

For this design I started with two coats of China Glaze Tree Hugger, and when that was reasonably dry I sponged the tips with China Glaze Jolly Holly (one of the prettiest polishes ever made. Fact). I sealed this in with a quick drying top coat – I used China Glaze Fast Forward, but any quick drying top coat will do of course.

I let this dry properly, and stamped the leopard design from BM221 in black. After this was dry (which doesn’t take long with stamping usually) I hand painted in the gold blobbies with Barry M Gold and a small hobby brush. You want to let it dry properly before sealing the whole thing with top coat – smeared spots do not make a leopard happy.

Gorgeous! I don’t have either of the China Glaze polishes, but I might give this a whirl with something I do own… I’ve got a few lovely blues… x
