More Leopard Print!

 Feeling really down in the dumps today and just wasn't in the mood really to do anything at all but I received a new nail art pen set today and I wanted to give it a go. 
The base is OPI If You Moust You Moust and the dots are BarryM Gelly in Guava
I wanted a more rugged type of print but in the picture it just looks messy.
Basically my new pen is an actual dip fountain pen. It came with 5 interchangeable heads and 2 handles. 
It was hard to get used to in the beginning but it seems to produce a nice thin line. 
The pen uses acrylic paint that only works when it has been watered down to the consistency of double cream. 

The only problem I had was that sometimes paint would flood my nail and ruin the whole design! 
(this happened to a design I did after this one, which infuriated me even more ARRRGG) 

I think I need a lot more practise with this and I am not sure its worth all the extra effort.
