Hello lovelies, April is a birthday month for me and also for my blog. Although it’s still March, I’ve decided to start a small series of recreations from my starting days. First design I decided to create is leopard print (you can find the original post HERE). I will add a comparison photo to this post too.
It took me some time to start up the blog, first time I created this design was actually in January 2013. I have improved a lot looking back at the photos and that makes me very happy. Unfortunately I don’t have any of the polishes I used with me, so I chose new ones 🙂
- base colour – Technic Orchid Mist
- white – OPI Alpine Snow
- black – China Glaze Liquid Leather
- leopard spots – Misslyn Crazy Love
This time I used dotting tool for the dots and a detail brush for the black lining. Back then I also didn’t know anything about clean up and thought that I just need loads of practice for nice curvy lines at cuticles.
I did change the design slightly – I added only 3 dots to each nail, 2 on my pinky and did small black curves and dots in the spaces between. I also noticed that it’s been ages when I did my last leopard print, it was for OMD Challenge. So this was a nice excuse (although you don’t need an excuse for leopard nails) 😀
On to the comparison photo. My photographing skills on nails have improved a lot too, I think 🙂 Left is the original design (although I probably created it off from something I had seen online, unfortunately I wasn’t able to find the artist or photo to give credits) and on the right my recreation.
