Leopard print and bow french manicure

Happy Thursday, Chronic Crafties! Today I am sharing a leopard print french manicure that I did earlier in the year.


I am pretty pleased with how it turned out! I love me some leopard print nails.


For this manicure I used the classic french white as my base. I used 4 coats of OPI Alpine Snow. Then I stamped on my print using the Konad image plate m57. I used a Maybelline New York black polish for this.




To fill in the leopard print pattern, I used OPI Bling Dynasty and applied it using a nail dotting tool. Then I applied two black nail art bows with nail glue.


I do love the look of the bows, but they weren't very practical. They kept getting in the way. The glue didn't hold them all that well either. I bought them off ebay, and they were much larger than I thought they would be, but I think that's what makes them so amazing. Japanese nail art features large bows and what not like these, and apparently they stay rock solid even after hard knocks and bumps. I need to find a better adhesive that will hold these bows better so they don't fall off, but will be easy to get off come removal time.

LOVE IT!
It looks awesome.
Wish I could do that on my nails now, but they are so thin that gels dont stick to them anymore !!

Thanks Krissy!

What! Oh why did they do that, that sucks! I thought you had amazing nails. What about acrylic, would they work? I think they are stronger aren't they?

Awards. Proof that I'm awesome.
