Linear Leopard!

Hi everyone!  Happy Pink Wednesday!!!


Since it's such a pretty day here in Atlanta, I thought today's mani was in dire need of a little linear!
I started with two coats of Up Colors Brilho Rosa, a beautiful rose pink linear holographic.


It's a great polish with an easy application.  The linear was definitely present in indoor lighting, but not as strong as a lot of other linear polishes.


Outdoors in direct sunlight was much better, but still did not have the super strong rainbows that are so coveted.


For my accent nail, I applied two coats of Sally Hansen White On, and followed it with one coat of HITS Hefesto, a linear holographic top coat.


Again, while awesome, I still wasn't getting the bright rainbows.


I then used Bundle Monster plate BM221 with Konad Special Black for the leopard print.


With my dotting tool, I placed some small spots within the leopard design with Brilho Rosa to tie the accent nail in with the rest.


I finished with one coat of SV.


While I didn't really get the supreme linear look, I really adore this mani!  It's simple, fast, and fun at the same time!


I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Painting!!!
