Matte Leopard + Diagonal French

Hello, lovely people!

Today I decided to tone down the crazy colours and sparkles and do something a little more subtle and chic :)

Back to my usual post format, so please click the jump to see more!

The base colour is one of my very few tan/nude shades, and I don't even have a name for it. It's by a brand called Markwins (my brother Mark approves), and it's got a great formula. Two easy coats covered perfectly, and the slight shimmer makes this almost frosty, but not quite--just nice :D

Indoors with flash. And the bottle.

I used OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys (brown creme) and China Glaze Liquid Leather (black) along with a small dotting tool to create the leopard print. Finally, I added a diagonal black French tip to the ends.

I knew I wanted to mattify this with OPI Matte Topcoat, but I got distracted and forgot to use regular topcoat first, so that's why the index finger is all smudgy. :(

So, there you have it. A little something for those of you who don't always want crazy nails. Look, I even trimmed them down a little for this design! :)

See you next time! xoxo


  1. Leopard is my favorite color, second to glitter. Because duh, they are both colors!

  2. Of course it is! So is holographic, which is my second favourite next to glitter. :D

  3. That's looks really great! I love this design <3
