Nail Art: Sparkly Leopard Print

Hello! Happy 2014!

I'm back after a brief (and unannounced) hiatus! Work and family and just Christmastime in general kept me super busy over the past month or so and I barely had time to paint my nails, let alone blog! I've also been keeping busy running my indie brand Moonstone Nail Polish and have some exciting things planned for this year (including participating in next months What's In-die Box!!!)

But anyway, I'm back now :) Let's see how long I can keep up regular posting..

The nails I have to show you today are from about a month ago when my nails where all lovely and long and even (my index is looking a little worse for wear at present).

Inspired by Chalkboard Nail's 'Blinged Out Leopard', these are my favourite leopard print nails that I've done yet! I love leopard print manis because they're so easy! All you need to do is get a dotting tool and start making splodges and wiggly 'C' shapes :)

For the base I used the relatively new Face of Australia Midnight Fireworks from the Carnivale Textured collection. Being pretty unfamiliar with textured polishes, I was surprised at how much I liked it! I have since picked up two more from the collection. I did need a few coats of top coat to smooth out the texture but I love how it turned out! I used acrylic paint for the pattern.
