Stiff as a Board

Hi everyone!  I know what you're thinking ... 
"Really Nicole?  Another linear leopard mani?"
Yes.  Another one.  But there's a method to my madness, I swear!


This is another amazing bottle that I grabbed at Overall Beauty!!!

I started with three coats of Glitter Gal Light as a Feather, a white holographic.  Say the words "white holographic" and try not to salivate.  I know, you simply cannot.


Under artificial light, it almost has a slight grey appearance.  But, in the sunlight ... .. .


Linear MAGIC!!


It is such a crisp and clean white!  I honestly didn't want to stop taking pictures of it!!!


The application was a breeze and the finish is perfect!


To add a little something extra, I used Cheeky plate CH2 with Konad Special Black for the leopard print.  Next, I used a dotting tool with Up Colors Azul Arco-Iris, a light blue linear, to fill in some spaces within the leopard print.  At this point, you might be wondering about that whole "method to my madness" thing!


I really wanted to create a mani to match this amazingly adorable handbag that my husband and my little boys got me for Mother's Day!!!!  Don't you just love it?!


I had a blast with this mani, both indoors and out!  I hope you all enjoy it as well!

Happy Painting!

Colors: Glitter Gal Light as a Feather, Konad Special Black, Up Colors Azul Arco-Iris

Stamping Plate: Cheeky CH2
