Leopard Gradient Take Two


I started seeing some chipping on my right hand and decided to redo this manicure but this time with different colors. I used Whirlwind White as the base color so it really pops! I used Sinful Colors 24/7 (the pink) and two Sally Hansen’s. Mellow Yellow, my favorite Xtreme Wear for marbling, and a new one I picked up on clearance at Walgreen’s when I also picked up 24/7 and 2 bottles of Black on Black, it’s Blue Blast a Sally Hansen Insta-Dri.

I am really enjoying this manicure, it’s much more like what I had envisioned when I worked on it two days ago originally. I didn’t do any cleanup on the gradient before taking a picture, so forgive me for not wiping the skin around my nails with a pointy q-tip before I shot the photograph. I think the finished manicure looks awesome though, and again it was stamped with Sinful Colors Black on Black, and m57.






I hope you like it. I really do, I went out to the library to pick up a video and the librarian said, “Oh my what fancy nails!” I thanked her and said, “It’s a two-step process, I really enjoy doing nail art.” It made my day today. I hope that you enjoy this manicure. I have great news to share, Ninja Polish got the DRK-A plate back in stock this past Monday and I ordered it within an hour of getting the email notice. It got shipped yesterday and should be here by Friday, I will be doing a review on this plate and sharing many new fresh manicures over the weeks to come. Thank you for checking out my blog and I wish you happy polishing!

    1. Thanks Liesl! I totally agree! I knew when I took the other one off that I was redoing it, but with the white this time. So it was easy to remove that gorgeous manicure! LOL!

    1. Thanks Jen! I think leopard print is my favorite stamping! I have done three in a row-LOL! Definitely try the gradient technique, like swatch it on paper or an index card first and then play around until you get the colors to work the way you envision them to, but most of all have fun with it! :)
