33DC2013 Day 30 - a mani featuring the same pattern, in various colours

When I have new polishes I often let them sit on my desk for a while. Same thing happened with the ILNP holos I got recently. They were screaming "use me", I swear! So today you'll see more nail art with these gorgeous polishes!

From left to right:
  • ILNP - Grape Alicious
  • ILNP - Admire Me
  • ILNP - Molly
  • ILNP - A.C. Slater

I decided to do a simple pattern: leopard print. It looked different in my mind than what it turned into, but I still like it.

I started with 3 of the polishes as a base: Grape Alicious, Admire Me and Molly. Two coats of each. I then added the coloured dots with a dotting tool. The base of Admire Me has the leopard in Grape Alicious and Molly, etc. I outlined them with A.C. Slater.

All pictures are taken with flash by the way, it does bring out the holo goodness in these polishes. The mani appears a bit darker in indirect light. No sunshine in sight lately either. Oh, do you see how long my index fingernail is? It usually breaks corners before I get to this length (of course I had the corner breaks on other nails, but shhhh).

Don't you think Admire Me has the most perfect name? This turquolo has to be admired and I do, I promise!

I wonder which patterns the other ladies chose... how many leopard prints will we see?


  1. These are so pretty and Adore Me is beautiful! I got A.C. Slater and Grapealicious in the mail today and put them on immediately! They're all so pretty, I might have to go buy more hehe (:

    1. I'm trying to refrain myself from buying anything today... annoying black friday online polish sales everywhere!
