Recent NOTD/s - leopard print, summer colours, & caviar nails

Hi lovelies! How have you been?

Today's post I'm just going to show some recent NOTD pics - I don't generally wear nail polish unless it's for a special occasion, but my nail polish collection had been sitting rather sadly neglected, so I thought I must put some effort into my boring, bare nails ^_^

First up I had a pretty nude x hot pink colour combo, teamed with a really pretty set of nail constellation beads from Makeup Academy. 

Since I hadn't used nail caviar beads before, the process was quite messy, lol, but now I think I know how to do it properly next time.

Next up was a cheerful colour combo of yellow x peachy orange! I wasn't sure how I would feel about all yellow nails, so I decided to pair it with an orange polish since the colours reminded me of a fruit salad (it was a hot day, I wanted to eat something nice and refreshing!).

And finally, the nails I am currently sporting is a rather colourful and loud set of leopart print nails! This was my first attempt at leopard spots, and I did make a few mistakes, but from a distance it looks ok ^_^

I started off with a pink x blue colour palette, decided it was lacking something, tried to add white polka dots but it didn't work. So my next logical step was leopard print, lol. 

One lady I met thought the spots were ladybugs though >_<

The leopard spots were hot pink paired with dark purple lining. The overall colour palette is kind of spastic and quirky, but I really like it~

What are you wearing on your nails right now? Do you like having classic looks, or having fun with nail art? I'd love to know ^^

    Once you put a top coat they'll last days, but there may be a little fall out here and there.
