Leopard Print Round 2

How fast can you paint your nails? I think I broke a world record tonight. When I got home from work it was decided that we would go out for dinner. Since my zebra/gradient mani had chipped during work today I had to quickly re-polish. I grabbed the first two sparkly colours I saw (Wet'n'Wild "Silvivor" and Crush "Platinum") and slapped them on. ('Slapped' is used loosely ... I polished with haste. Haha.) Anyway, I did all ten fingers with 3 coats of polish in less than five minutes. I didn't think it was possible. The only saving grace was that these colours are pretty forgiving. (Silver and holographic glitter.)

When we got back home I needed to touch up some area's and decided to tackle another leopard print design. I chose rather unconventional colours and I love the way they look together. Check it out. :)

I used Color Club "Masquerading" for the spots and a Nail Star Two-Way Nail Art Pen in black for the outlining and detailing.

Let's ignore the random black dot on my finger and the slight smearing from the top coat please & thank you. ;)
I found this look really hard to capture without good quality daylight. I personally think the photo's don't do this look justice, not to sound conceited. I just think that the polishes I used need to be seen IRL (in real life) to be fully appreciated.

Have you rocked zebra or leopard prints? Let me know!

Thanks for reading.
