Re-creating colourful leopard print nails


I just noticed that I've been tagged by bambino (entry). Whoops!!!
Will definitely get around to it. One day.

Ahem.



I absolutely fell in love with this colourful leopard print nail pattern when I saw it.
So eye-catching and different! ♥


Although they received plenty of compliments, they could not even come close to the original, created by letthemhavepolish.com. You should most definitely check her blog out for inspiring nail creations!! ♥

That photo alone is enough to stir one's interests in the sponging technique to achieve the gradient effect. I used makeup sponges to create soft and delicate gradients but I obviously need more practice as I found it very messy and I kept ruining my nails. T___T

Will definitely play around with it more in the future ♥

I am really thinking of purchasing the M57 konad image plate because I can never re-create such clean lines myself! It's only US$2.50 from Amazon! I wish we have something like that in Australia. MEH.
Anyway, that's all for today. I have a good excuse; am attending a wedding reception this afternoon! Looks like a gorgeous day ;)

Sneak peek of the dress I'm wearing there!





Hope you're having a good weekend!
