Half Moon Leopards

Hi loves!

The other day I turned to pinterest for inspiration since I wasn't really feeling particularly motivated to do anything too fancy.  The mani I recreated has been seen floating around pinterest for quite some time and I love it every time I do see it :)

I started out with two thin coats of my favourite gold polish Orly Luxe.  When that was dry I applied Orly Ma Cherie to created the half moon look.  This polish is kind of a hyprid between a jelly and a creme, but it was sheer enough that the gold underneath peeked through giving it a cool metallic look!

Then I added leopard spots using Orly Buried Alive and outlined them with a black creme polish.  This was so flashy and so much fun to wear!

Also - yay nubbies!  The free edge on my index finger broke off completely when I was clearing snow from my car so I decided to chop them all off and start fresh.  I kind love them though :)

Hope you're all having a fab weekend, thanks for reading!
