Technicolor Leopard

I felt like being a little experimental with stamping today.  I started with two coats of Zoya Zara ...


Zara is, in a word, amaztastic.  It is such a naturally shiny shimmer ... this is two coats with NO top coat!!!!


After the two coats of Zara, I used one of my Red Angel plates, RA-107 for the leopard design.  I dropped a small bit of each of the Ulta colors on the design, then scraped and stamped.  When the light hits the leopard, the different colors will subtly come through.  Next time I might use a contrasting color palette, but I didn't want anything to clash with beautiful Zoya!  


To add some sparkle, I taped off the tips diagonally and added two coats of Purple Gleam, a gorgeous purple glitter in a grey jelly base.  I finished it with a coat of SV. 


This was a fun mani to create, so I hope you like it!  

Happy Painting!!!

Colors: Zoya Zara, Milani Purple Gleam, Ulta Love my Blackberry, Ulta Moody Blues, Ulta Wild Night, Ulta Dance Teal Dawn

  6. Amaztastic...that in itself is amaztastic. Don't think I've heard that word before, and I love it! I also love this manicure. The slightly slanted tips are unique.
