Claire's - Leopard, swatch and nail art

It is many brands who have used the leopard glitter in their polishes. It's easy to make leo pattern nail art by freehand, but I still needed to try the glitter. It feels like an instant method of "nail art". In the shelfs this polish looks pretty blend, and it wasn't until Lakobotan asked me if this particular polish was in the stores here. Well it was, and had been for a long time, so fail on me. Bought it asap.

Leopard (sadly?) has opalescent shredded flake glitter as well. A combination which is a bit malplaced together  with the matte black leopard glitter. The black glitter needs a light base, and the flakes need something very dark to show. Also I've said it perhaps hundreds of times, I prefer to not have matte glitter combined with shiny glitter, but still I bought this. ;)

So for my first try I decided to make a "black and white gradient", which this time looks more like a dark gray to light gray gradient, to show both the black glitter and the flakies. About Leopard then, I used 2 coats, with much fishing, dabbing and placing resulting in a thick manicure. As you can see at the bottle pics, the leo glitter sinks to the bottom like rocks in water. So, what do you think? :)










Bought this at Claire's for 3.99 euro.

So, do you like this gradient combo? I'm in the mood of trying the leo polish with some colored base next time, what color would you use? Give my some inspo please! :D

    1. Thanks, looking forward seeing you use it! Yea, I've seen that DL has it too. Think they have glitter in it, instead of flakies.

  4. Lite oväntat med iridicerande flakies kanske men tycker det funkar ganska bra tillsammans. Blev jättefin över svartvita gradienten!
