Where In The World Challenge: South Africa

Hello my lovelies! Saturday is a great day for relaxing and looking at some nail art. So I have some country themed nails to show you today and the destination is: South Africa! 

I know it's a cliché, but I had to use my China Glaze On Safari polishes for this one. I don't do a lot of leopard print on my nails so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity. I used China Glaze Kalahari Kiss as a base for most of my nails and I'm Not Lion for the accent fingers. These two polishes go so well together! I also used them for a glitter gradient type mani (post here). 

For the leopard print I stamped with China Glaze Liquid Leather and used an image from plate QA8. I have a lot of leopard print images and I chose one with larger spots so I could fill them in with I'm Not Lion. In hindsight, I should have probably used a lighter color for the spots, as they do look a bit too contrasting with the rest of the colors. I still liked this a lot and wore it for about 2 days even though I normally dislike leopard printed stuff. 

I will most likely be taking a couple of weeks off from this challenge since exams are coming and I can't keep up with everything. I promise I will be back sooner than last time. Normal posts will still go up so no worries. In the meantime, you can check the other South Africa manicures below!
