Hi everyone! Sorry for being MIA for the past few weeks. I’ve been really busy with work and school. My current work place allow allows for neutral pinks and nudes for nail color so that’s why I haven’t been doing any new designs. ;_; Anyway! I managed to do something this Wednesday. (I’ll have to take it off soon for work.. darn..)
Color Club – Vintage Couture
Also using some of the mini flat back pearls from Born Pretty (see next post for review)
As requested by Janet, a leopard print tutorial!
Leopard print is very easy. If you mess up on the outlining, you can probably make it look like it was intentional because each spot is irregular either way.
What I will be using:
- Zoya – “Richelle”
- Zoya – “Harley”
- Covergirl Boundless Color – “Gold Rush”
- LA colors nail art polish (thin brush) – “Black” *
* It is much easier if you have nail art striper polishes (ie polishes with a long thin brush for detailed painting). If you don’t have nail art polishes or brushes, you can use a toothpick or unbent paperclip.
STEP 1. Basic nail prep. (File, base coat, etc)
STEP 2: Paint nails with base color (Harley).
STEP 3: Paint random spots. They don’t need to be perfect nor circular for that matter.. just try to spread them out evenly.
STEP 4: Now outline your spots with black. Remember to vary the line thickness.
STEP 5: I personally like to add random spots with just black if I feel like there is too much empty space.
STEP 6: Finish off with a coat of glitter and you’re done!
Hope I was able to help! ♥
