Hi everyone!  This is the mani I created at the beginning of my day last week!  I really wanted something with a skittled look, that still incorporated a matching color scheme with a dash of nail art.

Shade Emily de Molly It’s Complicated

I started off with three coats of Emily de Molly It’s Complicated on my thumb, index, and pinky fingers, and two coats of A England Princess Tears on my middle and index fingers.

Creating the gradient effect on the nail

Using a wedge sponge, I created a gradient with A England Princess Tears and A England Lady of the Lake.  I knew I wanted an animal print, but I couldn’t choose between leopard and zebra, so I realized that one good gradient deserves another!!


Adding the zebra to leopard pattern

Using my striping brush and small dotting tool with Sinful Colors Black on Black, I added a zebra to leopard pattern on my pinky and ring fingers.  I finished with one coat of SV.


I am so happy with the end result!!  I love the way I ended up with a skittle looking mani, without using too many different polishes!!


I am so excited to see the holos pop in Princess Tears and Lady of the Lake at the beach!!


I hope you all enjoyed!!  Happy Painting!
