Gemstone Leopard


I have sadly run out of nail polish remover, so when I started this design I had to think what I could used that wouldn't require much nail art.


So I went with a half leopard print design using black acrylic paint. The base colour is Barry M Lychee and I used Andrea Fulerton Crystal Gemstone Topcoat on only the top half of the nail. The  flakes were hard to capture in the photos but you can slightly see them in the image above.


 I'm getting used to my new nail shape, once they get longer I am hoping to make them rounder but it is soo difficult to get each nail the same shape! How do you guys do it?!?!

  1. LOL Don't ask me! That's why I went squoval. I used to round mine (because that's what my mom did so it was my only frame of reference forever) but, yeah, SO hard to get them all the same shape. It does look so elegant, though, once they get longer.

  3. I love this design! The half leopard print works really well! I like your new nail shape! I agree it's so hard trying to get nails all the same shape - I always struggle trying to get the right shape for my index fingernail! :)

  5. I think your nail shape looks pretty great and even so don't worry! ;) I'm really liking this design - I love leopard print so it's kind of inevitable that I like your design, but it's really cool how you only did half the nail with leopard print and the other half with that gorgeous flakie polish! I understand your pain - flakies are so hard to capture on picture!

  7. Your nail shape is fine, but obviously, you will always focus on the tiniest flaw as you have this close sight on it. It's a regular problem i deal with, in the end, only practise and self indulgence will help you.
    Please girl, show your Andrea Fulerton flakies over some dark colors!!!! pleaaaaaase!
