Leopard gradient

Hey, hey!

Today I would like to introduce you to my first (and possibly last) animal print manicure.  I don't know what it is...I like looking at them on other people, but not so much on myself.

Inside picture:

I used three different polishes to do the gradient, a pink to make spots and then some black acrylic paint to outline them (click  for a gradient tutorial). As usual, Clever Clogs forgot to take bottle pictures, so if you really want to know what I used, let me know in the comments section.

 Don't know what this colour is because I gave it away shortly afterwards, when I realised I had a dupe for the gold AND the purple. I don't like to hoard duplicates. If I have two colours that are similar, it's either by accident or because I want a back-up bottle.

 That pink flower? That was one of my sculpted acrylic trials. I don't have any hot pink acrylic; it was white and I painted it with the same colour polish I used for the spots! This picture shows the gradient a little better.

Hope you like it! Have a great week.



  1. WOW!!!!!!! this look awesome!!! Did you sculpt the flower yourself or was it a mold?
