Baby's first leopard print nails (with all China Glaze on Safari colors, of course!)

Hey lovelies! Today I have my first-ever leopard print manicure to show you guys!

I've seen a few leopard-print manicures involving glitter and I knew that if I ever tried this style there would definitely be glitter involved. Last night I was editing some papers for a friend, so I didn't have time to do an intricate manicure, but I really wanted to paint my nails with some sort of art... so I went for the glittery leopard!

I've never done leopard print on my nails because I've never liked leopard print, but it turns out that my dislike of it does NOT extend to my nails. I can't stop staring at them! They're so sparkly and the print is so visually interesting, especially on all 10 nails. And they were SO EASY AND FAST. Why didn't any of you guys TELL ME ANY OF THIS? WHY.

These started with a base of China Glaze I Herd That. Then I used a large dotting tool to make dots with China Glaze Exotic Encounters. Finally I used a small dotting tool to do the brown outlines and random other brown spots. I topped it all off with two coats of Seche Vite because this glitter was HUNGRY.

What do y'all think of these? I know leopard print has been done to death but I've never experienced wearing it on my nails before so it's still new to me! I also looove this color combo (of course) and like, anything this sparkly and shiny will always make me happy, so there's that.
