Tropical Rainbow Leopard Print - China Glaze City Flourish Nail Art
It's been a hot minute since I've done a leopard print manicure, so obviously I had to remedy that. I went full Lisa Frank with a rainbow gradient background using China Glaze City Flourish shades, and then painted the leopard print over the top in black. This style of leopard is a little different than the style I've done in the past. I think I prefer this smaller pattern, despite it being harder to do and taking longer!
I started with a base of white, and then sponged on three China Glaze City Flourish shades in a nonlinear gradient. The technique is the same as a "normal" gradient, except you paint the colors in a circle on the sponge. Danielle has a great tutorial that shows you how to achieve the effect. Make sure you continually rotate the sponge between nails so the colors end up in different spots!

The leopard print was freehanded on with a nail art brush and black polish.
The colors blended together beautifully. I love where the green and pink mixed together to create a pretty peach shade.
The China Glaze City Flourish collection is available now at salons and professional beauty supply stores.
