Rainbow Leopard Mani

Hi guys! I have a fun nail art to share with you today! I have wanted to do a rainbow leopard print for awhile, and I finally got around to it! I started off with a base of Cult Nails Tempest, a white creme. I then used my dotting tool to make rainbow spots. I used several polishes from the 2012 China Glaze Neon Collection - Surfin' For Boys, a bright red neon shimmer, Orange You Hot?, a yellowy orange neon shimmer, Sun-Kissed, a highlighter yellow neon shimmer, I'm With the Lifeguard, a neon green shimmer, Splish Splash, an ocean blue neon shimmer, Hang-Ten Toes, a bubblegum pink neon shimmer, as well as Essie DJ Play That Song, a warm purple neon (no shimmer here). Finally, I used Cult Nails Nevermore, a black creme, to create the outlines and some extra spots here and there. Check it out!

1 coat KB Shimmer Clearly On Top

I loved this mani so much! So bright and insanely eye-catching. You can see I ended up doing sort of an accent nail -- there are twice as many spots on my ring finger as the others, haha. I was just testing to see what I liked better, but ended up kind of liking it this way, so I left it. I did have some annoying problems with the black smearing a bit when I applied topcoat, which is very annoying in macro shots but luckily doesn't show up much in person. Such a fun summery mani though! Can't wait to do another similar one soon :)
