Nail Art: Lippy Electric Leopard Manicure (PHD Colour Accent Challenge Entry)  

Posted by: Stylishly yours in , , , , , ,

I've been following Polish Hoarder Disorder (PHD) for a while now. She has weekly nail art challenges. I finally have the courage to submit an entry to this week's challenge – Colour Accent – to create a grayscale nail design and include a pop of colour!

This is my submission:

Here is another look. The Models Own Bubblegum neon pink isn't showing up as neon vibrant in the photo than in person.

Lacquer Boudoir Entry to PHD Challenge - Lippy Electric Leopard

Lacquer Used:

Base Colour:Beauty UKSoft Grey3 coats
Stamp Plate:Konad M62KonadM57Leopard
Stamp Colour:Barry M293Grey1 coat
Lip Colour: Models Own 059 Bubblegum (Neon) 1 coat
Topcoats:Seche Vite83005Dry Fast Top Coat1 coat


  1. After base coat, I applied 3 coats of Beauty UK Soft Grey
  2. I stamped all my fingers except for the ring finger using Barry M Grey for the leopard pattern from Konad M57 plate.
  3. With a small brush, I drew mini lips randomly on my ring finger using Models Own Bubblegum.
  4. Then, by freehand again drew a bigger lip on the thumb again using Models Own Bubblegum.
  5. Going back to the ring finger, with a dotting pen, I drew some leopard pattern between the mini lips with Barry M Grey.
  6. To finish off, I used Seche Vite Quick Dry Top Coat to seal off everything and make it shiny.
Hope you like this manicure. I only have 4 Konad plates, so I was slightly limited of patterns so I decided to do something freehand. I ordered Bundle Monster plates last week, and they're on their way, can't wait! The challenge was fun, it really got me thinking with the limited plates I've had, I would definitely enter more challenges in the near future!

What do you think of this? Did you enter this challenge?

This is amazing! I love it! Can you just come by and do them for me?! haha

This is ADORABLE!!! Absolutely amazing. I would wear this mani in a heartbeat! I so wish I could freehand designs but for now I'm sticking to konad. :)

Oh thank you. The lips are very easy to freehand. I think Bundle Monster Plate BM02 has a kissy lip pattern if you want to nail stamp it instead.
