Step by step gradient leopard mani

Hi,
Today I'll show you an animal print gradient manicure and the tutorial.
Here's the final look:

I started with two coats of piCture pOlish - Marine and over it I applied Jolfin - Blanc
diagonal, using a sponge. After I applied Zoya - Malia using the same technique.

Then I applied Deborah Lippmann - Today was a fairytale, which fits the design perfectly.
I stamped the leopard design from Konad m57 image plate using Konad Special Black.
I finished with a clear top coat. You can see the final result in the first pictures.

What do you think?

Thanks for showing how to do the layering! I wouldn't have imagined the color being so easy to put on, and the Lippmann glitters are a pretty touch!
