I tried my first leopard print mani a couple of weeks ago. I have an especially small nail polish collection for being such an enthusiast. So in searching my polishes, I realized I had no browns for a natural leopard print. So, I opted for a monochrome black & white print. I call it the Snow Leopard! I followed instructions from Chalkboard Nails, one of my favourite nail blogs. Her designs are always so neat!
I am not a big fan of animal prints, but I knew my little cousins would love it. I was visiting my father's side of the family at a cabin on lake Tulaby, in Minnesota. It was so great being there, but by the end my nails were broken, my legs bruised, and my skin sunburned! Definitely worth it though!
Anyway, on one of the days we weren't in the lake, I was the manicurist for a bunch of little girls & boys who all requested colourful combinations of polka dots & leopard prints. My aunts & I pooled our nail polish colours & I unbent a bobby pin to use as an impromptu dotting tool!
It was difficult doing nail art on people other than myself, especially little kids who are super impatient with waiting for things to dry! But it was so much fun & I'm glad I got to share my little side hobby with my family!
