Leopard Print Colour Blocking Nails

Hey guys!

I hope everyone's weekend is going well while I'm studying and practicing for my upcoming course! It's weird because studying is so much different when it's for something you actually enjoy!

The design I'm showing you today is the one that I wore most of this week and it incorporates two of my current favourite polishes. One of them you surely already know because I've talked about it so much - it's OPI My Vampire is Buff, which I now have two back-up bottles of, making it officially the shade I own the most bottles of. And not surprisingly, I still feel the need to get even more back-ups. The other is butter LONDON Trout Pout, a gorgeous coral polish.


Anyways, I started out with a base of My Vampire is Buff on all of my nails and then I used a medium length striping brush with Trout Pout and a black creme to block off diagonal sections. I also did an accent nail of a simple freehand leopard print. I was going to stop there but decided to tie in the leopard print on the accent nail to the other nails by adding the same print to all of the beige sections.


I absolutely love this combination of coral, nude and black! When I was looking at the polishes lined up before I started the design, I had a slight concern that the colours might end up looking a little Halloween-y. But I went for it anyways and I'm happy that I don't get a Halloween vibe from this combo at all.



Thanks for stopping by! Talk to you guys in a couple of days!
