Mattified Animal Print Nail Art

Sunday, 15 January 2017

As with most months, bar December (because I just about failed as badly as a nail blogger could in that month), I am taking part in the #clairestelle nail art Challenge over on Instagram. 


The day 14 prompt was Animal and the first thought that popped into my head was leopard print.


I can't actually remember how long it's been since I wore leopard print nails and as I was feeling particularly lazy today, I wanted to go with something simple.

I decided to pair Barry M's Copper Mine (review of the Molten Metals collection here) and Rimmel's Chase Me from their Sweetie Heart collection together. I am in love with the mint/copper colour combo and felt that a delicate, rather than full on leopard print would suit this best. As Chase Me is matte I thought I would add a matte topcoat to Copper Mine too.




What do you think? This didn't take me more than 5 minutes to do and yet it looks fab (in my opinion). I really need to remember that sometimes, less is more. Do you agree?

Hope you've had a lovely Sunday and are feeling raring to go for the new week.

  1. I love these vic. You always do leopard print so well. And I agree, while bright and jazzy leopard. Prints are great I love the delicate colouring on these. Please do some leopard print with traditional leopard colours. I would love to see that xx
