NOTD - Leopard Rose Nails

Hey Lovelies! Hope you've all had a fab Easter!

Today I am wearing quite possibly my most favourite mani this year ... so far!

I used 2 coats of Barry M's Gelly "Lychee" as my base colour (nude creme).

For the accent nails I was inspired by a new scarf I bought from Primark at the weekend and so I wanted to re-create the design onto my nails. I used Barry M's "Mushroom" (taupe brown) to create the leopard spots, then I used Nails Inc's "Black Taxi" (black creme) and a dotting tool to go round the edges of the spots. Then to create the roses I used Barry M's "Papaya" (coral creme) and just brushed on a larger amount onto the nail into a rough round circle. I then used Nails Inc's "St James" (red creme) and a dotting tool to edge the flower and then I randomly drew more red inside the flower so that it looked more like a flower. For the leaves I used Barry M's "Spring Green" with a thin dotting tool and drew a "v" shape off the flower.

I am absolutely over the moon with how this turned out as I love leopard print and the roses look so cute with leopard print too!

What do you think? X
