Playing around

Here are a few pics I'd like to share that I worked on a couple of days ago. I am still practicing on the Konad stamps, and have tried my first attempt at a leopard mani. On the China Glaze website they have a fantastic tutorial on how to go about doing leopard print nail art which they demonstrated with their Island Escape collection colours. I am still waiting on an order to get the colours from that collection (can't wait!) but tried it with some polish I already have. I love the way the leopard print styles look when using bright bold colours!!!

So here are my pics:

 The top thumb is painted with Chi Chi Check Out Chick and stamped with Konad special polish white using BM plate 02. The bottom thumb is painted using two way nail art pens I got off  Ebay and stamped several times using BM plate 06.

The polishes used here were: Chi Chi Check Out Chick, Chi Chi Merman, Chi Chi Mermaid and Sally Hansen Green With Envy. 

I just love Chi Chi's Check Out Chick - I have been using it a lot lately! It applies very smoothly and completely covers in one coat. For these pictures though I have used two coats just for good measure :) 

Of all of these designs my favourite is the thumb I decorated using the two-way nail art pens. I think using two colours with the layer of the stamps over the top looks pretty cool!

Bye for now :)



  1. wow, that's some amazing photography right there. whoever took those shots must be awesome!
    p.s the nail polish is also quite good

  2. This is so cool! I loooove Opi's Black Shatter, too. It looks so dramatic over a white base coat finished with a clear topcoat. Thanks for the latest posts and the inspiration, Claire. CAN'T WAIT to try it!!!!
