Confession: 9 times out of 10 I don’t know what I’m going to do with nails until I get the base coat down and start thinking.  China Glaze Pink Underground started this one with a slightly sparkly pink.  I wanted to do bubblegum bubbles on it but I feel like I just did bubbles soooooo it’s been awhile since I’ve done any leopard and went that way instead.  I picked out a handful of colors that I thought looked gum-y — Revlon Alluring Amber (orange), Mattese Elite Tequila Sunrise (this yellow is meant to be scented but I just smell nail polish), essence Lime Up! and Pixel Byte My Lip — and used those for the spots and (of course) some Kleancolor Black for the outlines.

    I love all the bright colors. Every time I attempt leopard print I feel that it looks just like dots with c’s around them. I have got to try them again soon.
