Week #59’S Tutorial

12 Sep

As requested by Janet, a leopard print tutorial! πŸ™‚

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. πŸ˜›

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.. Β just try to spread them out evenly. πŸ™‚

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! β™₯
