Colors: Blagger (Butter London), Cheeky Chops (Butter London), Black Lingerie (Revlon)
My leopard print manicure from about a month ago received several notes/reblogs, so I thought I’d create a tutorial for it. Plus, I believe someone requested an animal print tutorial, so here you go! :)
Start by painting your nail with a base coat and then a base color. Once that has dried, use a contrasting color to paint on spots. You don’t need a dotting tool or anything to do this. Just use the nail polish brush to plop on messy spots as I have. Once that dries, use a dotting tool, toothpick, striper, or small paint brush to create parenthesis-like shapes around your spots. Add dots/blobs to fill in any empty spaces/gaps. Seal in your design with a top coat, and you’re all set!
Helpful tips: Pay attention to how far apart your leopard spots are. You don’t want your nail to look too busy, and you also don’t want your spots so close that all the details end up touching. Also, when choosing colors, make sure your leopard spot color contrasts with your base color and isn’t too similar to whatever color you’re using to create your parenthesis-like shapes and dots/blobs.
