Inspired by Fashion - Stripes and Leopard Print

If you know me well then you know that I have a weakness for leopard print that is only matched by my weakness for stripes. I heart them both hard! So when I came across this pin from Mission Closet on Pinterest I squealed in delight. Not only because it marries my two favorite patterns but because it was done so well. This is a "me" look! I love mixing patterns and colors and while you don't instinctively think of putting these two patterns together they look amazing!

This was fairly simple to do and allowed me to continue my current obsession with skittle manis. I started by painting my ring and index fingers with white polish. Once dry I used striping tape and Butter London Royal Navy. I removed the striping tape while the polish was still wet. For my middle finger and thumb I used Zoya Farah and OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys and my striping brush for the leopard print. I kept my pinky solid with two coats of Royal Navy.
This is one of my favorite bits of nail art that I've done in awhile. While I am typing this I am now realizing that these match my outfit today. I am wearing tan and navy blue- this was not done on purpose I swear lol!
