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. :P
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! ♥
