Pastel Palette

Hello everyone!

Today's manicure is one that I've been really excited to do and finally did yesterday! I first saw it on Pinterest but never repinned it for whatever reason, a week later I googled "leopard and stripes" and this is one of the pages that came up! Thankfully I found it because I adore this design from Top Coat It.

I changed the colors up a bit but it's basically the exact same manicure. It's your basic leopard but the pastels she used, and the stripes and gradient combo is to die for!


For this manicure I used the following three colors: Rimmel Peppermint (minty turquoise), Fingerpaints Chrysanthe-Mum's The Word (green), and Essence Bloom-A-Loom (purple). For the index, middle, and pinky fingers I started with a base of the Fingerpaints polish and sponged on Rimmel Peppermint. Then I took a thin nail art brush and Essence Bloom-A-Loom and created horizontal stripes across the entire nail. For the ring and thumb (not shown) fingers I started with the Essence as the base and created the leopard design with the Fingerpaints as the outer portion of the spots and Rimmel Peppermint as the inner portion. I finished off with two coats of topcoat.

Looking at these pictures, it almost looks like all the fingers have a purple base and that the stripes are gradient. Which did you see first, the gradient stripes or the purple ones?
