Colorful Leopard Print Nails

Hi Guys! I have super bright and colorful nail art for today. It has been a long time since I've done leopard print nails. I was soo caught up on creating different nail art designs, I've completely forgot the very first design I created when I started this nail art journey. It's soo cold outside, I wanted to something that reminded me of the tropics. If you follow me on instagram, I posted the original photo of this design.
  Although I loved how it looked before, I couldn't help to continually decorate it even more. I need to stop this habit of mine! Anywhoo, I was watching Pack a Punch Polish negative space leopard print, and I fell in love with her method. So I wanted to do something similar. I guess you can say it's loosely inspired. So lets get to it: 

 For the base, I applied two coats of Jamberry Lacquer Pebble. I recently did a review for this brand and was very pleased. The formula was perfect and easy to apply, and of-course perfect for this design. Once the polish dries, using a dotting tool, I added a few dots with China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle, Neon & On & On and That's Shore Bright
Using the smaller version of the dotting tool, I added Fright Night Claw Polish Sinister around the spots. Creating a leopard print. I then added the stripping tape, to form the shapes as shown in the tutorial. Once that was set, I filled in the shapes with the same China Glaze I used for the spots. 
Lastly, I then topped it with Essie Matte About You, for that matted look. Overall I loved how they came out. Funky usually is not my style, but I can live by carelessly threw my nails! Love it! :D
Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
