I'm sporting nubbins in this post. Well, my nails decided it is too long and broke on me while I was painting my nails for this 9 Day Nail Art Challenge. Nubbins or not I must forge on. LOL!
I decided to do my nails based on this tutorial from Sarah from Chalkboard Nails. Sarah always has gorgeous swatches on her blog and her nail art is just drool-worthy!
Back to todays nails.
I always love leopard prints on my fingers but so far I have only used a stamp to do so. I always avoid free handing it because I am afraid that it would not come out perfect. Yea, I'm weird like that.
I pinned this tutorial since the day it came out but I never tried it till now. And now I think to myself - Oh My Gawd, why was I so scared before! LOL!
I used Mrs Claus I got from my grab bag from 365 Days of Color as my base color. Mrs Claus is a raspberry jelly with gold shimmer in it. I kinda like the color but it turned out to be a little sheer for my liking. I am wearing 3 coats of Mrs Claus on my nails. If you look carefully you can still see my nail line underneath the spots.
