OPI Push and Shove and Big Apple Red mini leopard print

I think I'm a little bit obsessed with mini leopard print, after I was inspired by Tips and Topcoats the first time round.  I suspect that I'm going to be doing more of them because I discovered that I actually have a stamping plate with a mini leopard print design on it, so I no longer have to try and paint it with perfect tiny little spots.

The image plate is from the first set of Winstonia plates W101, available here from the Winstonia site. I used OPI Push and Shove for the silver chrome base and OPI Big Apple Red.  For a person that doesn't wear red very often, I absolutely love how this one turned out.


  1. I absolutely LOVE your leopard designs! Something about how you pair them with straight lines and edges just has me drooling over it.

  2. I always enjoy your nail art and you just can't go wrong with OPI especially the Big Apple Red!

  3. This is great! How long did you wear Push and Shove for? I have it but have yet to swatch it...I hear it peels off really quickly though!

    1. I do my nails ever nght, so I can't really comment on the wear, except to say that it still looked great after a day. Also, even though it says nit to use top coat on Push and Shove, I do, I don't notice a difference in the finish.

    2. I think you did, but it's such a pity to remove some of the gorgeous artwork you've created after only 1 day!

      Thanks for the tips on Push & Shove! :)


  4. Your nails look great!

    Your blog looks absolutely beautiful, I love the layout!
    I’m looking forward to read your next article ;)

  5. This looks good! I do love the two colours.

    I got Push and Shove, but not tried it yet! I'll need to get around to wearing it :-)

  6. This looks amazing! I don't wear red very often either, or leopard print, but this looks really stunning!!
