Blue Leopard Print

I have to admit, after this mani, leopard print is growing on me. But only for nails, and in cute colours that are opposite to the generic leopard print. It's just a simple, fun design and with a coloured background and black and white print, it can pretty much go with anything. I never thought I'd like this design. Guess it just goes to show that you've got to try it out to really judge it.

The blue base is Let's Get Lost - Essence. When I first bought this polish, I used it on my toes and for some silly reason I didn't use Essence's 24/7 Base, which is amazing at preventing staining. I'm on my second bottle in only a few months. So because I didn't use it, it stained my toenails like crazy, and even the skin around them. I had to use a bi-carb soda (baking soda) paste to remove the stains. This time around, I used the base I should have and I'm hoping it won't stain when I take it off later. Otherwise this polish is just ruined for me. 

Anyway, the black and white are my go-to black and white's which I've repeated enough in previous posts. I topped with Seche Vite and I'm sad to say that I think it might need thinning soon. It's becoming a bit too thick for my liking. Does anyone know any good polish thinners?

That's it for today! There should be some more posts up this week. Happy Monday everyone!

  1. This looks really lovely! It's a pity about the staining- hopefully it won't happen with the base coat.

    I agree that leopard print looks better in the 'non traditional' colours. I am going to an Africa themed party on the weekend so I might have to try it out! That is if I can stand removing my current mani haha.

    As for your seche vite- you can actually buy some stuff called 'seche restore'. It's made especially for thinning seche vite and works a charm. I add a few drops to my seche every week :)

    1. Thank you! It didn't stain at all, I was so happy haha.

      You should definitely try it out, it's a fun twist on the traditional look of it. It's the only way I'll ever wear leopard print haha.

      Again, thank you. I'll have to get some as soon as I can :)
