China Glaze Off Shore Nail Art: Leopard Print Florals

I am so excited about the new summer collection from China Glaze! It's called the Off Shore collection, and it features 12 bright seasonal creams in a rainbow of colors. I just got this collection from HB Beauty Bar, and I immediately had to do some nail art!

I was inspired by this manicure to make a leopard print floral nail art look.

I started with a base of OPI Chillin' Like A Villain (also from HB Beauty Bar.) Then, I made some irregular spots with OPI My Favorite Ornament, and outlined with KBShimmer Eclipse. To make the flowers, I used China Glaze Seas The Day mixed with China Glaze If In Doubt, Surf It Out (and I mixed in black for the outline.) For the leaves, I used China Glaze Shore Enuff and China Glaze Be More Pacific. Whew, that's a lot of colors! I topped it all off with matte top coat.

I was a bit annoyed that this manicure turned out so thick, but I kept painting over my mistakes instead of trying again, so it's my own fault. Oh well, at least the pattern turned out pretty!

 I did learn from this manicure that I need to practice my leopart print skills. And my floral skills. Lol!

I used so many colors for this manicure that they didn't fit in my lightbox, so I didn't photograph KBShimmer Eclipse (solid black cream) or OPI My Favorite Ornament (champagne glitter.) But look at how pretty these polishes look together!

The China Glaze Off Shore collection is available from HB Beauty Bar for $3.95 USD each, and you can get an additional 15% off with the discount code POLISHCHALLENGE.

Which colors will you be purchasing?

Some polishes provided for my honest review.
