Aqua Leopard

Hello gorgeous readers! Hope you are doing fine and staying healthy. I'm feeling a little under the weather today and I'm very tired so I'm gonna keep it short and sweet. This is a mani I did using my China Glaze Aquadelic mani as a base. To see swatches of it alone click here

I wanted to try a leopard print since I just discovered animal prints for my nails. This time instead of using a nail art pen or stamping I used a small dotting tool. Let me tell you it isn't so easy to control and while it might be the perfect tool to make perfect dots, it's kinda hard to draw lines with it. 

The color for the leopard spots is Color Club Gossip Column. It came out more navy in the photos but it's actually a blue-teal. I didn't use any top coat because this was made around the time my China Glaze Fast Forward decided to thicken up and smudge every design. I came to the conclusion that it's useless to invest in top coats from abroad because they become unusable after half the bottle is gone. It's better to use the cheap local stuff. 

So what do you think about this mani? Is the color combo just right or too out there for you? 


  1. I love the colour combo Mihaela, and I agree on topcoat, I use the cheapest unless I want the manicure to last in which case I use Revlon, I will have to send you some. X

  2. Yayyy!! Another animal print. It looks lovely!

  3. I am loving these colors together!
