Leopard print nails are everywhere at the moment and have been for a long time (and i'm sure will be around for a long time to come too!). Such an easy detailed look so i though i would give it a whirl.
This is how i achieved mine.
Apply a base colour, lighter colours work best for this step. (I chose Models Own- Utopia) Leave to completely dry before going onto the next step.
Next, choose a colour for your leopard spots. I find a darker colour works better for this part however a much lighter colour would also work. (I chose Models Own- Nude Beige) The spots look better the less perfect they are so don't worry if they look messy at this stage. Again leave to fully dry.
This is where the design starts to pull together (how exciting!) Using a nail art pen or a thin nail art brush draw outlines around the spots leaving some spaces/gaps. I used the Black nail art pen from Models Own to do this.
Finally, add some small black marks in the spaces, these don't have to be any shape or size in particular, (they don't even have to be added at all!) just whatever you feel needs adding to the design.
To finish off my nails i used a matte top coat (after i took pictures so you can't see, D'oh!) however a normal top coat is fine too, again this depends on your own taste.
So, what do you think of these? will you be giving them a go for yourself, or have you already tried them? Make sure you leave links/pictures in the comments below!
