Leopard spots redo

I have nothing to disclose.

A few months ago I picked up a real treasure from a second hand store:  Wet n Wild 416A Vert Metallique. This is an old school polish though I'm not quite sure how old. It's a nice dark green metallic with gold shimmers and I can tell you I remember the bottles looking like this one back in the 90s.

Yes it's still good.

This is one coat which is rather sheer.
With two coats I found it did have quite a few bubbles and some stray pigments but considering how old this polish is I won't complain because otherwise it applied rather well.

I was wearing this alone for a few days trying to think of something to do with it. Originally I thought about doing an ocean scene but my thoughts kept turning to one of the first manicures I posted on here because the color is sort of similar. (I'll post the link next time I'm on the computer.)  So in the end I decided to recreate my leopard spot manicure.

Last time I used Zoya Opal which is a green flakie but this time I had Sinful Colors Green Ocean at hand so I used one coat of it.

This polish is really pretty but it's a bit thick and lumpy so it was just a tad difficult to work with.

I love this combo by itself though. Next I used Shany nail art polishes 10 and 18 to make my freehand more realistic leopard spots. Then I just applied top coat and done!

If you like this manicure please let me know by commenting. Thanks for reading!


  1. I really like it with the sparkles. Leopardprints was never my thing, but looks like you are rocking it
