Rainbow Favorites-- Purple!! A Leopard Print

Happy Friday Kids!!  This week has gone by quickly for me.  Maybe it's because I'm enjoying all these "Rainbow Favorites" posts!! :)  Today is "Purple Day."  I've been trying to incorporate more nail art with these posts, so today I decided to try a Leopard Print Mani.  Once again, I followed a tutorial by Sarah at Chalkboard Nails.  Sarah's tutorials are so easy to follow.. she speaks slowly and clearly and simplifies each step... plus, there's no annoying "porno music" playing in the background. ;)

Again, I chose three colors from China Glaze..Sweet Hook, Spontaneous, and Urban-Night.

Purple Leopard Print:

For this leopard print, I started with two coats of Sweet Hook, then used the small end of a dotting tool and applied the "print" with Spontaneous and Urban-Night.  I have about ten dotting tools, and although I used the small end, I should have picked a tool with a smaller end because this print looks kinda "crammed together."  I am pleased with the final result and I was so surprised  how easy it was.  I'll definitely try this again!!

I'll see you tomorrow with the last post for this challenge-- PINK!!!!!
