Coral + Cornflower Leopard

Hi everyone! Today I’ve got another quick post for you using a nail art technique I’ve never actually attempted before: leopard spots!

I feel like freehand leopard spots is a nail art technique every blogger/nail art aficionado has done multiple times, but for some reason I never tried it out until today. I still can’t shake my desire for blue polish, so I’m trying to at least incorporate other colors and make more unique combinations – which is where Man’s Red Flower comes in! From Pahlish‘s The Jungle Book collection, MRF is a peachy/orange holographic shade – it looked slightly more coral online, so I was a bit disappointed when I got it, but it’s BRIGHT in the sun (not quite neon but almost) and the formula is amazing. Glad I scooped this one up!

I’m not normally a huge fan of blue/orange color pairings (it’s the colors of my college’s rival, booooo) but I like this combination because I think the soft orange and almost lavender-leaning cornflower blue of Bikini So Teeny look really pretty together.

The silver came into play because my sister had her bottle of Orly on the coffee table where I was painting my nails, and then I decided to sponge on a layer of Servin’ Up Silver (which is so old and sad and goopy, ugh, I need to try to thin the formula out) as an accent on my pinkie.

I’m annoyed I couldn’t capture the holo of MRF very well, but it’s really lovely in direct lighting. I’m also pretty happy with how my first attempt at leopard spots came out! Now that I know how easy it is, that look might be appearing in more of my manis coming up, so be warned! Thanks for reading! See you next time – A x
