Subtle leopard

Hi everyone, today I decided to practice my stamping. The base color I'm wearing is China Glaze Below Deck. For the leopard print I used Konad plate M57 and my favorite gold 2030 (also from China Glaze) to add some sparkling. I don't normally wear neutral shades a lot, though I love it on others, but this is something I might try again. As you may have noticed, I have a weakness for bold colors, graphical patterns or heavy glitter, but I kind of like the subtlety and minimal 'bling' of this calm look :) What do you think, would you wear this yourself? Thanks for visiting!

  1. That looks really neat and pretty! And I would definately wear this myself. Think I would use two more contrasting colors though ;)

  4. This is nice! I love bright bold colours too, and usually avoid the neutrals, but I wouldn't mind having this on my nails. :P

    I love the color combo. Did a similar mani a while ago using China Glaze's Classic camel and a brown Isadora Crackle/Shatter topcoat. Looked almost like an animal print.
