Cheetah Print



Cheetah Nails

I've always loved leopard-print (which, as a child, I called "Cheetah Print" because cheetahs were my favorite animals).  I think leopard print is really fun and pretty.  Last week I had an untraditional leopard mani, inspired by By Hilary, so this week I wanted to do a very traditional leopard mani - or a cheetah mani as I like to call it :)


For this design, I started with one coat of China Glaze Classic Camel, a color from their recent Vintage Vixens Collection.  Next I stamped cheetah spots using Konad plate m57 and China Glaze Goin' My Way, also from their Vintage Vixens Collection.  I topped everything with Seche Vite.  I'd like to try adding a little black to this; if I do, I'll make sure to post some additional photos here.



Want to see some of my other favorite leopard-print looks?

In green and pink HERE
And my recent favorite, silver and pink, HERE

I'm totally wearing this mani with a pencil skirt to work today.  You just have to wear a fabulous outfit with leopard print nails!
I hope everyone is having a fun day!

This looks GREAT! I had on China Glaze Camel yesterday, and it just doesn't look as nice on me as it does on you. I think it's awkwardly close to my skin tone.

Fun! I don't care for Classic Camel alone, but it looks good with the cheetah print on top!

I LOVE leopard! I even have the print tattooed on to my left arm - yep! :p And I tried doing something like a leopard with golden polish and Isadora Graffiti Black Tag. See for yourself... but what you've done actually look like leopard, for real! Nicely painted! :D
