It's Gonna Be A Wild Summer!

This warm weather is just what I needed! I finally packed up all my UGGs and shipped them off to the attic ;-)

In the spirit of summer, and the crazy, wild one I know it will be, here is a manicure to help get everybody into the spirit of summer!


I never want to take this off! Maybe I'll just keep painting it over and over again for the rest of the summer ;-)

I started off with two glorious coats of Essie Come Here! - one of the most amazing orangey-bright-pinkish-reds I've ever seen.  (I think that is the only way to describe this color)

Next, I used hole-puch reinforcers to guide the half-moons, which I painted on with Sally Hansen Man-Go Team! and Sally Hansen Knockout Pink. Both of these Sally Hansen polishes are limited edition, so get 'em while they're hot!

Next, I free-handed the leopard prints using the two Sally Hansen polishes above, outlining them with Wet N' Wild Black Creme.  Finally, I free-handed sparkly lines on the half-moons using Spoiled by Wet N' Wild Cougar Attack, and also used Cougar Attack to add some sparkle to the leopard prints!

I topped this all off with a nice coat of Out The Door.




What do you guys think? I was iffy on the color combo at first, but is has SOOOO grown on me, like by 10000 %! And these leopard prints are just so easy-peasy to do but they look so adorbs!
