Midnight blue leopard manicure

I don't know about you but I find it sooooooo frustrating when a mani idea doesn't work out. I often get these flashes of artistic-ness and when I go to create it it fails! I had an awesome blue and silver feather stamped manicure in mind however the feather stamping decided to fail miserably so I ended up going with leopard stamping. My first leopard mani! I'm not sure the blue and silver goes together all that well but my sis said it looked fine and she is my harshest critic haha.


I started off with 2 coats of China Glaze Up All Night which is a great navy creme with slight shimmer through it. I then layered over a coat of Seventeen 104 which is a fabulous blue flakie in a clear base that was gifted to me by Christina in the post I showed you yesterday! I then stamped full leopard image from Konad plate 57 using China Glaze Millenium.


Unfortunately because I stamped the leopard print it covered up most of the nail so you can't really see the gorgeous flakie. If you look closely at my pics you can just make out the brighter flakie pieces against the navy base!




I'm really digging the leopard print actually so expect to see some more leopard manis! I don't do leopard clothing or anything but I do love to experiment with my nails. Am I the only boring one?!!! Ha!

Thanks for looking as always!

  5. Lovely! I like how the silver stamp popped out of that blue base color. Like you, I'm also not into leopard prints but I think I better try leopard nails one of these days. :)

  8. It looks cool and I think the navy blue and silver look great together but it seems a bit winter-ish, but still cool! ;)

  12. I think I'm gonna need to break down and buy a couple actual konad plates because other brands I've tried do not cover my full nail, or even close. Even if you covered up most of the flakies I still love this mani!

    1. Oh definitely get some Konad plates! I love the other brands but Konad is the original and the easiest to learn on. Once you get the hang of Konad it's easier to use the others I find.
