Finally had time to paint my nails! Aaaaand I decided to mix leopards and ruffles together. Maybe it's because I haven't painted my nails in such a long time that I have gone overboard on the nail art. But hey, I am so in love with this aaaaand I'm so proud of myself! SCRATCH THAT, I AM EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY PROUD OF MYSELF :D
Shown above is two coats of OPI's Don't Touch My Tutu. I love how it automatically turns in a French on my nails :) and to answer your question to why my ring finger's cuticle appears to be far longer than the others, it's to balance out the length with the others. Cause weirdly enough, it's just so much shorter than the others and when I have nail polish on, it just looks really awkward.
A solid white is achieved after four coats. Lots and lots of patience will be required for it to dry off completely layer by layer or the whole thing will just take hours to dry! Remember to let each layer dry before applying another :) Lucky for me, it's winter here in HK and every layer only took about 2 minutes to dry (no joke). And tbh, I wouldn't mind wearing this white alone because OPI's Don't Touch My Tutu isn't whiteout-white, it's grayish-white which is awesome because if it is whiteout-out, well.. it'll just look like you painted your nails in class with whiteout (which in my opinion, isn't classy at all!).
Here's how my left hand looks like. Ruffles on my thumb and pointer, leopard on the other. I was originally going with brown and nude but changed my mind and went with coral and black. I am so proud of my first attempt at leopard prints! Watched ChalkboardNails' tutorial and followed her easy steps. Click here to read/watch.
This is my right hand and I must say, I am beaming with pride at how neat it is :D normally, my right hand is just messy, messy, messy but not today! NOTE: I didn't even have to do any cleanups on my fingers because I didn't get extra bits of nail polish on :) *smirks*
Used Sephora's black and coral for the designs, OPI's top coat and OPI's Don't Touch My Tutu as base. And that's my two lovely dotting tools that I bought a while ago in Central with Tiffy and Astha. Here's another picture of it!!
