Metallic Leopard Print NOTD

It's been a while since I gave the old leopard print look a go and thought I'd give it another whirl last week though I wasn't sure if it was still in or bit last year. I still like it anyway so wasn't too bothered.

  • I used "Barry M Basecoat Topcoat & Nail Hardener (All in One)" as a base and (topcoat)

  • Painted my nails with two coats of Models Own "Champagne"

  • Dotted Models Own "Sterling Silver" in varying sized splodges

  • Dipped into Collection 2000 Lasting Colour in "Liquorice" with toothpicks and outlined in rough "C" shapes

The key to getting this look in my opinion is concentration and patience, well a steady hand or two! I found doing my left hand much easier (I'm right handed) but with a bit of practice and concentration got there with using my left hand for my right in the end. Due to the number of layers of polish you really need to let each coat dry fully before going on with the next and I loved these Models Own colours especially when it comes to this as I find they dry pretty swiftly for me.

Overall I was really pleased with how they turned out and liked the colour combination of mixing the metallic gold and silver. My only gripe was removing the shimmery polishes is a bit of a pain for going al over my fingers but I can't really complain about that.

Whaddya think? Is leopard a bit 2010 or the metallic too much? Or do you think it's a good look?
