Pink Leopard

This is yet another challenge by the very talented ladies from the Facebook page Indian Lacquer Ladies. 

The topic for this week is "Animal Print". The truth is I haven't done any animal print at all. I never had the confidence for it but this time I just thought ... Lemme try. Well!! I never thought it'd be this easy and gorgeous too.

I knew I wanted to do a color block leopard print. But the color selection wasn't easy. I wanted a pink in the combo but then.... which pink. I almost did a color block with pastel colors but then I spoiled the mani. Well!! I decided that it wasn't to be and then finally went back to my original color selection. (*phew* sooo long. But then am a woman and am allowed to change my mind. Any one object???)

The color I finally chose for color block is china glaze "Light my Tiki". It is a corralish pink or maybe reddish pink with purple shimmer. (I always thought it had gold shimmer but imagine my surprise when I found purple shimmers when I took snaps in the sunlight). The base for leopard print is "Gold Digger" by Barielle. It is a super pretty gold with gold shimmers. The combination is a blast. See for yourself.

I did it all free hand so please forgive my clumsy lines. I went over my little finger again and again with my topcoat and it dragged my nail art ... Totally my mistake!!
