Pink and Lime Leopard Sparkle

Hello lovelies. Ugh, allow me a small rant for a minute. My tribal nails (these ones) are all over instagram and weheartit, with the watermark removed and even people re-creating the exact design and claiming everything as their own. Which is annoying in itself, but when you call them out on it, they have the cheek to say "Oh, it's on weheartit, if it's on there it means you can take it" uh, does it?? How does that work then? and someone also said "Well it's everywhere so it doesn't matter" I hate that childish mentality that if everyone else is doing it, that makes it ok. What is wrong with these people!? The nails aren't even that great!

It did inspire me to get my own instragram for my blog though, so if you use it you can follow me @britnails. Let me know if you have one for your blog and I'll follow you :)

I did another colourful design today, the weather is kind of inspiring.


To do this I used Models Own Lime Green as the base, then sponged on some Barry M Fuchsia to create a gradient.
I painted the leopard print on freehand (can't you tell) using a nail art brush. 
I then added some Barry M Iridescent on my middle and little fingers, and finished with top coat.



I got some pretty impressive fabric print on these, I tried to smooth it out but it's still a bit noticeable. Oops!

  1. They look so awesome, but it sucks that people are stealing them! That's kinda sickening. Perhaps you could try a bigger watermark. It might make it a little harder for people to remove it...

    1. Yeah, I have changed it since I posted those pictures. I don't mind when people share and re-create my nails, in fact I welcome it...it's just when people pass it off as their own! So rude!

  4. I hate those accounts on Instagram where people just steal photos off the Internet, post them and give no recognition or credit for the person whose photo it is! I love that green!
