Today I have a really pretty manicure to show you that was inspired by my awesome friend Teneil, also an awesome Aussie! ;) (I actually swatched her new polish line a while ago! Check that out HERE). She does fabulous leopard print and I was inspired by this manicure she did! :) I didn't have any of the polishes she used so I just improvised with a few of my untried polishes!
The gorgeous purple you see is by a new indie brand, Alanna Renee. Alanna Renee is owned by Alanna of Pretty Purple Polish (coincidentally, she's also an Aussie!)! :) She's an awesome blogger and does great swatches (and EXCELLENT macros!!!) so you should follow her if you aren't already.
She launched her brand a couple of weeks ago and I could only get two at the time, which was such a hard decision because she's got so many pretties in her shop! I'll show you the other one I bought sometime soon. :)
This is Purple Addiction. Of course Alanna has an awesome purple in her line! :P I mean her blog is called Pretty Purple Polish! ;)
Purple Addiction is a purple jelly base that has some purple shimmer in it, with purple square glitter and holographic microglitters! It's sooo pretty and sparkly!
For my accent nail, I used a base of Goddess by Sportsgirl. It's a foil-y champagne-gold. For the leopard print I used Rimmel Pompous and a nail art pen from Sportsgirl. I really recommend their nail art pens! I was actually recommended them by Teneil actually haha. They can draw really thin lines and they come with rhinestones too! ;p
Here's a gorgeous macro shot of Purple Addiction taken from Alanna's blog post. PREEEEETTY!!
I'm getting much more into nail art lately! Just accent nails for now. ;)
Thanks for reading! :)
