Leopard print!!

Today, I went for leopard print!  How exciting!  Let's have a look:

I started with a base coat, then painted on three coats of Essie Mint Candy Apple.  I'm going to say this... I strongly dislike every single Essie polish I've ever had the misfortune of using.  They go on streaky, globby, uneasily, and chip immediately.  I haven't tried all of them, obviously, so I can't make a blanket statement, but come on.  This one needed four coats, but I couldn't be bothered.  

Anyway, I blobbed on dots of OPI You Don't Know Jacques Matte, and then added some plain ol' black.  I am loving the colour combination.  Next time I might make the blobs a bit smaller, but I really like the effect of these.

I have no facility at all on my right hand, so I never really know what to do with it.  I guess I'll just paint the Essie on, but it won't look very good, as it is already an incredibly hard polish to work with.  

This mani deserves another picture.  Enjoy!
