How-to Leopard Nails :D

So today I thought that I would change it up and do something that I have never done before. It was inspired by Glam Nail's Twitter picture.

But I learned how to do it with Jezebel's help

Thank you, Jezebel!

Based off her directions, I ran into a few bumps in the road while making it. So, I am going to make my own directions, enjoy.

  1. Two contrasting nail polishes. One can be large brushes and one a decorating small brush. (My ex. is neon pink and orange.)
  2. Black nail polish
  3. Toothpick or disposable eyeliner tool.
  4. Glossy paper, (My ex. is a real estate card)
  5. Nail Polish Remover (For mistakes)
So let's start!
  1. Apply the large base nail polish of choice, you can apply again if you like
  2. Then with the small decorating nail polish, use very little nail polish. Dab onto nail, circlelike. Don't worry if you don't have a steady hand. The more creative the better! Only have 5-6 on all of the finger except for the pinkie and thumb. More dots for the thumbs, only about four for the pinky.
  3. " Spread 'em out, and make sure they aren't too centered — have some blobs that start at the cuticle, some that start way off to the edge of the nail, and some that go off the tip."- Jezebel 
  4. Grab your black nail polish and drip it onto your glossy paper.
  5. Get your toothpick or other tool of choice and dip it into the drip of black nail polish.
  6. Using your tool, go around the contrasting blobs. One side big c, other side little c. Tip: to make it look natural make sure they aren't all in the same direction.
  7. Repeat to other hand.
  8. For staying power apply top coat!
End result:
