Nail Art: Giuseppe Zanotti Sinful Leopard Manicure  

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

I was flipping through my October issue of ELLE (UK Edition) and was mesmerised by this amazing Giuseppe Zanotti AW1011 advert modelled by the gorgeous Anja Rubik. Strong, sexy and dangerous – this designer advert has inspired this week's manicure. I wanted the slick sinful high-shine red against the gold glittering leopard. I also used red glitter to add more glam.

Lacquer Used:

Red Base Colour:FitFlopREDPantone® 200 2 coats
Red Glitter Colour:BarryMNP105Red Glitter 2 coats
Leopard Base Colour: Inglot303(Gold Shimmer) 5 coat
Leopard Stamp Plate:M57KonadM57Leopard
Leopard Pattern Colour:Sinful Colors103Black on Black 1 coat
Leopard Spots Colour: L.A. Colors410Force 1 coat
Topcoat: Seche Vite83005Dry Fast Top Coat 1 coat

I was very excited to use the FitFlop Pantone Red on myself for the first time. It's the PERFECT red and very fitting on this occassion. I really wanted that sinful devil shiny red. I painted my left middle and ring fingers and right index, middle and baby fingers with this. Application is smooth, pigmented, 2 coats was perfect. I did accidentally painted on the wrong finger with this colour, removal was a bit of a pain as this polish is so pigmented. So, watch out.

I initially bought the Inglot 303 (Gold Shimmer) as a gradation colour, a sheer colour that you can build on. Oh boy, on this occassion is it ever sheer. I needed a good 5 coats to get it completely opaque but the result was beautiful shade of gold with perfect micro shimmer. I painted this gold shimmer on left thumb, index and baby finger; right thumb and ring finger.

Then I use BarryM Red Glitter to add to the FitFlop red base to highlight left thumb, ring finger and right pinky. I also use this colour to highlight all the hearts.

I used Sinful Colors Black on Black and the Leopard Stamp from Konad M57 on the gold fingers and highlight some spots with L.A. Colors Force. I had to freehand the leopard pattern on the left thumb.

P.S. I'm 10 followers away to host my first giveaway!
