NOTD – Turquoise Leopard with China Glaze, Barry M, and Model’s Own

by on August 25, 2017 · 14 comments

I think I may have finally cracked it (or cracked up) but I think this leopard mani is gosh darn improvement on my American Apparel leopard mani from attempt a few weeks ago. The key is the use of a nail art pen to make the squiggly lines.

I used from left to right: China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise for the base, Barry M Aqua Green and Mint Green for the spots and accents, and Model’s Own nail art pen for the black lines. I’m really happy with the way it turned out so expect other leopard NOTD’s in the future. This kind of manis don’t actually take as long as they look either, it’s really down to the fast drying time of the polishes I use.

Hope you likey ladies – thanks for stopping by!

Omg this is so inspiring. Seeing you struggling and then arriving at this gorgeous leopard print mani makes me want to have a go, although 1) i dont think i could have the patience 2) i could kick myself for not having bought that models own wah wah thing 3) there is no way i could achieve anything remotely pretty. I guess I’ll just have to live the excitement through you haha xx

Oh Liloo you are so crazy! My mani’s aren’t a patch on yours! Actually this didn’t take me that long, and I always do my mani’s while I’m blogging so I’m not sitting around waiting for paint to dry!

Nail art pens rock – I know others using dotting tools as well like Leanne at Do Not Refreeze. My left hand always looks better than my right too!

Oooooo it’s so cute! I’ve never attempted anything like this cuz I’m not sure if I have the patience but I really love the look. And these colors would be great for Sept 2 when we’re all supposed to wear teal for Ovarian Cancer Awareness.

Honestly it doesn’t take as long as it looks, if you use quick drying nail polish then it’s a doddle! Let me know how you get on!
