Now I usually do more bright or un-natural animal prints so this time I wanted it to look more neutral and true to life. Subtle and Animal prints don't always go together, they do tend to be very in your face, so trying to tone it down was a challenge in itself.
I used a base of OPI Sand in my Suit, swatched and reviewed here......
First I sponged a line through the centre of my ring and thumb nails, using OPI Over the Taupe. This added just the right amount of natural looking shading under the leopard print to make it look more realistic and less flat looking. I then stamped over the top using plate M57 and Barry M Grey. Lastly I filled in the odd spot using a light cream polish.
I am fairly pleased with the result, it does look soft and more understated, not easy for animal prints lol
Will definitely try this one again.
