It’s red, white and black all over!  Mostly i just wanted to do a two-tone leopard split down the middle, and China Glaze Revolution was one of the colors sitting on my counter that I hadn’t even worn yet.  Started with a base of Kleancolor white, then added leopard spots in Revolution and Wet n Wild Ebony Hates Chris to half of the nail.  When that dried, I put on a topcoat on that half (super crucial!) and then taped it off so I could cleanly divide the nail (I don’t trust my freehand so well at the crack of dawn).  Finished it out by adding leopard to the other half and there you have some confused leopard business!

    Thanks ladies! I actually mused on the whole 101 Dalmations thing right after I put the red half down… but then it would have to be doggie spots! :-D Which is to say… next time, oh yes, next time…
