Work Friendly Wednesday – Subdued Leopard Print

I felt like doing a bit of nail art this week for Work Friendly Wednesday. I was inspired by this subtle stamped mani by The Nail Polish Project, but then I realised I can’t stamp (also the fact that I don’t own any stamping plates, which makes things a bit tricky). So I turned to my trusty fool proof leopard print instead, opting to use similar toned down colours.

I started with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff, then dotted on the leopard print with Essie Love & Acceptance and Butter London Yummy Mummy (that polish is getting way too much usage in my work friendly posts).

At first I tried using OPI Berlin There Done That for the borders around the spots, which is closer in colour to Love & Acceptance, but it just ended up looking like patchy purple mould on my nails. Moral of the story: use colours with enough contrast.

I think it’s pretty subtle and work-appropriate, but again, it depends on your workplace! Would you get away with wearing these at work?

    I love how it’s partial on 2 nails and fully covered on the others. Lovely choice of colors as well! Very pretty!

      Thanks Niki! The partial leopard print is one of my favourite designs to do, it’s an easy twist on the full nail leopard print ;)
