Leopard Foil Gradient Mani

Happy Monday! My day is blah so far but I hope yours is going better. If not, here's a little sunshine to cheer you up :D

This foil is called Wrapping Paper. I had to complete it twice because I forgot to apply a base color. It still wasn't completely opaque after applying a base, so I re-foiled the 1st two fingers. Can you tell the difference? If you look closely you can see the ridges on my pinky and ring fingers.

This foil is really bright and my least favorite so far, so I stamped over it. It would probably be better for the Holiday season, thus the name wrapping paper (ha ha). But I love the look with the leopard print stamped on top.

I switched it up to a French on the right hand. Yes, I'm lop-handed. I chipped 2 nails and decided to file them down instead of temporary wraps.


Well I hope this brightened your day, at least a little........... Until I polish again :)

  21. Sorry I'm posting such a late comment to this post, but I'm a new follower. I decided to click around and visit some blogs from sidebars, so here via painted lady fingers.

    Anyway, I love that foil! I was surprised to read that you weren't feeling it, but after I saw the leopard spots, WOW! That mani just popped right off the screen, it's fantastic! Glad you felt it need a little something now.

    Loving your blog and going back to reading old posts. lol
