31DC2013 - Day 13: Glossy Leopard Print With A Touch of Texture

So today's theme is animal print and I'm pretty sure most of the participants are going to do leopard print nails but I don't mind. This is such a pretty look and it's been a long time since I last wore it on my nails so this is a great opportunity.

I decided to combine regular nail polishes with textured polishes and this is what I came up with.

For my glossy nails I went with a base of China Glaze Something Sweet. The spots were made using A-England Holy Grail and I framed them using Maybelline Mini Colorama #52 Dark Plum.

For the textured accent nail I started with a base of Chic 12 - a cute baby pink from the new Sugar Baby collection, that has the slightest blue shimmer in it. I bought it because I've been looking for a dupe to the beautiful Kiko 634 so I was a little disappointed when I first swatched it and saw it had the shimmer, but on the nail the shimmer is barely noticeable and the color is perfect!
I used L.A Girl Sand of Time for my spots, and framed them with Chic 04.

I'll try to swatch my new Chic polishes in the next few days so stay tuned for that if you are interested. Natalie from NailzCraze already swatched some of them so you can go check out her blog too.


  1. Pretty! When I tried to do a texture based design it was a disaster, I'm glad you got it to work :D
