Mint Candy Leopard

I put Essie Mint Candy Apple on Wednesday, and then I saw the leopard print tutorial by Nail Polish Art Addiction on Cult Nails...and I had to try it. Instead of doing leopard tips and one leopard accent nail, I just went full-on spotty. I used Essie Lilacism and Essie Lapis of Luxury for the spots, and Sally Hansen Diamonds for the sparkly accents.

I was very pleasantly surprised with how this turned out! I have a feeling that every color I wear for a little while is going to turn into the base for a leopard manicure. Oh, the possibilities... That's all for today - I still haven't heard about the scholarship, but I'm hoping I'll get a call this evening. Cross your fingers for me!


  1. I quite like this!! You did an excellent job AND I love the colours!!

    Fingers crossed for that scholarship!!

  2. I love those color choices. Excellent!

  3. Thank you, thank you, and thank you! :)

  4. I really, really like this! It's is really pretty, the colours go so well together! :)

  5. Thanks! I think it's funny that the colors are all Essie and go so well together that they seem like they could be in the same collection, but they're not.

  6. Best of luck with the scholarships!!! If it weren't for those, I wouldn't have been able to go to collage.

    This is soooooo stinkin' cute!!!! OMG!! I want to see you do this more, yes!!!!

  7. Thank you for your good luck wishes! I won't be able to go to college
    without scholarships, either, so I'm really hoping I get most of the ones
    I've applied for, especially the full-tuition one!

    And thanks again for the compliments! I'm definitely going to be doing more
    leopard manis, since I loved this one so much.

  8. This is so pretty! It's like an icy leopard mani. I love the colors :)
