Patriotic Leopard Print Nails

Happy Independence Day!!!  Whoop whooooooop!

I wanted to do something non-traditional for my July 4th nails, so I played around with a few ideas before settling on leopard print in red, white and blue.

Leopard print nails

I used Ruby Ruby and Snow Me White by Sinful Colors, as well as a generic Navy polish from Forever21's Love & Beauty line. Ruby Ruby is seriously the perfect bright red polish and it applies perfectly. It does take about 3 coats for opacity though.

I was going to try to add white stripes to my "plain red" nails using a "French tips sticker set" that I just recently picked up from the Essence brand, butttttt unfortunately those stickers really sucked and left an ugly sticky residue on my nails when I peeled them up. Not a good look.
