Pink Leopard

I've never really got on well with leopard print. When done well it can look really good, and there seems to be many ways of doing it, but I can never seem to get it right! And it always looks so easy. I don't even want to think about my earlier attempts at leopard print. 

Today I used a tutorial from Chalkboard Nails to see if it helped, but it still didn't turn out how I wanted! Leopard, you are my nemesis.

My base colour is Color Club I Believe In Amour, the shiny dots are Models Own Mystic Mauve and the outline is Barry M Shocking Pink.

Eh, could be worse! I'll keep trying!

  7. Haha - I think yours went better than mine! I just tried it yesterday as my MSMD, a similar colour scheme too! I never think of using any thing other than black for the outline of the dots though.

    (sorry for the link - I'm an incredible newbie at blogging (started last Sunday) but I thought a comparison would be okay - tell me if its not.)

    I found it quite difficult to get small shapes and as I used blobs of glitter I feel like I have pimples on my nails! Have you tried it with a cocktail stick? I've heard that's good.
