Blue and orange gradient with leopard print

I love manicures inspired by clothes, accessories, shoes, jewellery and other things a girl has in her wardrobe. This time I made a summer nail art that matches my sequin tank top I bought a while back but never wore until now:

Gradient nails with leopard print

Initially I was going to paint my nails orange with a bright summer-y OPI Atomic Orange. This orange is one of those colors that sit in my nail polish box for months before I try them, and when I finally do, I wonder why I haven’t done it much earlier. It’s a perfect color for summer! Here is the bottle by the way:

OPI Atomic Orange

So, I thought I’ll do an orange manicure, and then I decided to add an accent to the mani… and I ended up with a completely different and kinda exotic look. Well, at least it’s done with Atomic Orange :D

Leopard print nails

For the leopard print manicure I used:

  • OPI Alpine Snow – white base colour
  • OPI Atomic Orange – orange for sponging
  • Essence Color and Go Let’s get Lost – blue creme from the old version of the popular line
  • Konad black nail polish for stamping
  • Konad m50 plate
  • Clear top

It’s a quick and simple nail design :) I started with 2 coats of OPI Alpine Snow, and then I sponged orange and blue randomly over the white base. Next I stamped the leopard print over the gradient base, and applied a coat of fast drying top to seal the design.
