essie leopard print nails

Hey everyone, I hope you are having a good day!

Today I just wanted to show you one of my favourite types of nail art...leopard print. I use the infamous technique by Gem which is so easy yet so effective. I used a Model's Own WAH! Nail Pen to create the black pattern. 

This time round I wanted to use some of my favourite nail polishes which are my Essie ones. I only have a few but they really are lovely colours and I would really miss them if they weren't in my collection anymore. I have the three pastel shades Fiji (which is a very pale pink, almost white), Van D'Go (which is a darker but dusky pink) and Mint Candy Apple (which is the very hyped pastel green).

Essie polishes are pretty pricey at £7.99 but I think they're worth it because they have such an unusual colour range which you wouldn't normally find anywhere else. The colour pay off is pretty good as I would say a maximum of two coats is needed.
These three colours work really well together which is why I decided to use them to create my leopard print.

I'll stop rambling now so you can take a look...
