Elf Desert Haze Gold And Brown Leopard Print

Hey all.. Simple Leopard print today. I'm still trying to catch up with all the mani's I've done but haven't posted, so these are from a few weeks ago. I've done this combo before on a nail set, but with Models Own - Nude Beige, and I think the warmth of that shade helps tone down the brassy look of the Citadel Paint, so I'm not fully a fan of these. But I like them matte =]

Base Coat: Nai RX - Stuck On You
Base Colour: ELF - Desert Haze
Stamp Colour: W7 - Suede
Image Plate: Konad M57
Gold: Citadel - Shining Gold
Top Coat: Models Own - 3 In 1

Elf - Desert Haze, 2 coats
And here's the basee colour, the first Elf I've ever tried; and I loved it. The formula was so great, and dried so quickly! I think it's my favourite nude right now. Then I added a coat of Rimmel - Matte Finish.


Hope everyone's had an okay day.

  17. I'm in love with this mani!! Question, since your nails look to be on the long side can you stamp all your nail at once? I have a fauxnad set from born pretty and I found that the images are too short, both width wise and length wise. So basically my question is: Is it worth it to splurge and get a konad plates to fit my nails?

    1. Thanks! My nails do get a little long, but I've found the length I like them at best is always within stamping sizes. I always have to double stamp my thumb with the original Bundle Monster set because of width and length, but with Konad I'm fine.

      I would say splurge for sure if you're having trouble with sizes, maybe get a set like Bundle Monster 2, the new set, or Mash plates, and then get a few konads.

      If your nail beds/nail length's long it might be worth it to look into the large image plates out there, like Dashica's or Magno Nails.

      Hope this helps a little :]

    1. Really? That sucks :( I've only heard good things about their formula so maybe you just got a bad one or something!
