Nail Art Monday: Holographic Leopard

So I'm trying this new thing, mostly to help me come up with manicure ideas without my head exploding trying to figure out what to wear next, haha.

I'm going to try and do themed days.

What I'm looking at now is:

Nail Art Mondays
Two-toned Tuesdays (manicures with multiple colors accent nails, gradients, french, half moons, etc.)
Pink Wednesday
Indie Thrusday

And then I'm still trying to decide for Friday-Sunday, I think I can do swatch Saturday &/or Sunday, but I'd love to hear all your ideas!  Leave them below!

Anyways, I wanted to start with my Nail Art Mondays and show you all my first attempt at leopard print nails.

Color Club Halo Hues Beyond, Essie No Place Like Chrome w/top coat
Now, I can't decide if I like this first leopard print pattern I've ever done.  I do think it resembles leopard, but I just can't decide if it looks good enough to my ridiculous standards haha.

Other than that, the general concept is something I'm a fan of. 

I started with two coats of Color Club Beyond, from their new line of Halo Hues.  This is a FANTASTIC holographic black if you're looking, a nice dark shade of black but with brilliant linear holo goodness.

Then for the spots I used Essie No Place Like Chrome from their Mirror Metallics collection, and bright silver foil metallic that is a lot of fun.

What do you guys think?  Is this leopard print a hit or a miss for me? 

Don't forget to leave your ideas for my themed days, and follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr, and Like me on Facebook, all the info is in the About Me section of the blog.

Hugs & Kisses & Great Polishes!
