Monkey See Monkey Do Time! Featuring Chalkboard Nails.

I am EXCITED about today.
One of my favorite nail bloggers hands down is Sarah at Chalkboard Nails. She is always spot on in her awesomeness. One of my other favorite things in life is Leopard Print. So it was no wonder when I saw this mani she did, that I would want to re-create it!


Totally awesome perfection, right? I only hope I can do it justice.

I kinda think I did ok. I approve anyway!



I used a base coat of Kleancolor Melon Green since I knew the next polish would be a streaky bastard. Boy was I right. I had to use 4 additional coats of China Glaze Celtic Sun...that polish is a streaky disaster. Pretty, but a nightmare. It was STILL streaky after a base and 4 coats, but since I knew I was covering a large portion of it, I struggled on.
The grey is China Glaze Pelican Grey (oops here, I meant to use Recycle, but in the end I grabbed the wrong bottle...glad I did though, I think the darker grey would not have looked as good) and Fingerpaints Black Expressionism.
A coat of Gelous and Out the Door to finish, because I had some bumps from the many layers of polish and I like a good smooth surface when I dot or tape! So there you have it!
