Rainbow Leopard Print

L-R: Mushroom, Berry Ice Cream, Strawberry Ice Cream, Peach Melba, Lemon Ice Cream, Mint Green, Sugar Apple*, Huckleberry*, Blueberry Ice Cream, Grey
For today's design I used a lot of Barry M polishes, eleven of them in total! I wanted to do a rainbow design so raided my Barry M stash, you can always rely on them for bright and fun colours. I tried to pick out mostly pastels for this mani.

I chose to create a leopard pattern in a rainbow colour scheme. To achieve this look I started with two coats of white polish and let it dry fully. I then lined the polishes up in colour order and assigned two per nail. With a small brush I drew the leopard print pattern on, covering half a nail per polish. I did have to mix the really pale colours Huckleberry* and Sugar Apple* with their neighbouring colours as they just didn't stand out against the white.

I'm not that happy with how this mani turned out as some of the colours are too similar, and some are very different to each other. Overall I think it's fun and the multicoloured leopard is nice, but I just had a bit of a disaster with my colour choices!

Have you tried any rainbow coloured designs? How did yours turn out?
