I love me a good old leopard manicure so I thought I would share with you how to achieve it in a few quick and easy steps.
Step 1: Prep your nail by pushing back the cuticle and cutting any extra skin. File, buff and shine the nail for a clean and smooth surface.
Step 2: Add a base coat and paint two coats of your favorite polish. I used Nailtiques as my base coat and OPI The Thrill of Brazil.
Step 3: Draw the outline of the leopard spots using a black nail art pen or a tooth pick dipped in polish. Simply draw random squiggly C shapes on the nail.
Step 4: Fill in the leopard spots using a dotting tool or tooth pick in a contrasting color. I chose OPI Goldeneye.
Step 5: Add your favorite top coat for a long lasting and glossy finish…my favorite is the Seche Vite.
Not only is this mani super easy, you can create it using so many different colors, do the design on the tips or an accent finger…the possibilities are endless.
Keep a look out for more nail art tutorials. In the mean time, whats your favorite way to rock a leopard print manicure?
