easy leopard gradient nail art!3.29.2013
time to take matters into my own hands.
since the sun is refusing to arrive I'm ploughing on with my spring/summer nail art in the hope the weather will catch up.... EVENTUALLY!
I love bright nails so I decided to mix up one of my favourite nail art techniques.. the good old gradient! it's a fun and easy thing to master- I did a little tutorial here for you guys to read if you missed it!
once the base gradient dried I added a basic black and white leopard print on top. dab on white circles (I use the brush straight from the polish bottle) and outline with a black nail art pen (I use models own)
I always paint both hands (oh boy is the right hand harder!) but I rarely get a shot of both as my camera struggles to focus on timer, luckily my mum was on hand to snap these!
I tend to use a page from my blogging notebook to dab off the excess colours; I think the leftover palette's are so pretty (plus it shows you how messy I am when I'm painting.. mucky pup!)
if you have any nail art request let me know... I'd love to hear from you!
anyway happy easter holiday folks.. I hope you're all joining me in eating far too much chocolate this weekend? (please do.. I won't feel so guilty if everyone else if doing it!)
