Rainbow Leopard Lisa Frank Nail Art

Hello! Welcome back for my second fill for the 'Rainforest' prompt from The Digit-al Dozen! :)

I stuck with my (partially) freehanded animal theme, but I took it in a more creative direction. Today's animal is a leopard but it's more of a Lisa Frank leopard than a realistic leopard haha. And I love that!

This was a super fun mani to do, even if the eye/profile nail needed to be redone three times until I was slightly happy with it.

My base is a smoosh/stamping marble which was done with four sheer jelly polishes (OPI Pen & Pink, OPI Purple Perspective, OPI Turquoise Aesthetic and Essie Muse, Myself) over white (Essie White Page).

For the majority of my nails I stamped on a leopard print with Mundo de Unas White and MoYou London Pro Collection XL 04.

For my accent nail I freehanded on the profile of a cat face (you are supposed to see it's a leopard by the spots I added around the top of the head) with black and white acrylic paint, and did my eye with Essie Reggae and Rum. The nose was a bit more of OPI Pen & Pink. :)

I always think freehand looks best matte so to finish it off I put a quick matte top coat.

I ADORE this background. I always forget how amazing smoosh marbles can look with only a few colours and some patience. Perfection!
