Hello! A bit later in the day, but I am back today with my most recent contribution to the #maniswapcircle. Our color theme this week was silver/gray. I had the honor of recreating a mani by @aaaratednails. This was hard, because she is a master at doing simple, yet beautiful manis. I ended up deciding to go with a nude/gold leopard print mani, as I loved the contrast between the metallic and the creme polishes, and knew I could recreate it in our assigned color.
For this mani, I started with a base of Zoya Tove. Tove is a dove gray with a satin finish. I used Sally Hansen Pumping Iron for my accent nail and to create the leopard print on the other nails. I also used black acrylic paint. When it was dry, I added a coat of Seche Vite.
Overall, I'm pleased with how this turned out. I love the pop of the metallic, but wish my leopard print was a little more sharp. I know with practice it will get better, but that is the main reason I wasn't completely sold on this mani. Overall, I love these #maniswapcircle challenges and look forward to completing them!
