I hope that you all enjoyed my last post, and thank you so much to the people who sent me pictures of there leopard pint nails which they learnt from me last week!
This post will show you how to do leopard print nails, but using a different technique, which is slightly more time consuming, but worth it.
You can really be creative with this technique as it will work with any colour you want, as long as there not too similar.
Things you will need:
- Nail file
- Base and over coat
- 3 different colours of nail varnish (One should really be black)
- Paint brush/Nail effects pen (or do what I did and used an old liquid eye-liner brush)
- Nail varnish remover
- Cotton buds.
Step 1: Clean, file and buff your nails. Apply a thin layer of base coat on your nails so they don’t stain. Wait for them to dry.
Step 2: Chose your base colour which should be something lighter than black. I have chosen ‘BarryM 317 Blue Moon’. Paint your nails and see if you need another coat. Paint again if needed.
Step 3: With your second chosen colour carefully place small dots on your nails making sure there is enough distant between them. This can be done in any random way so don’t worry about where the dots go. I have chosen ‘Beauty UK Soft Violet.’
Step 4: Once your dots have completely dried, grab your paint brush (or whatever your going to use) and dip it into your black nail varnish. I am using ‘BarryM 47 Black’. Carefully go round your dots be never completely going round the dot try and leave gaps. Look at the picture if you a bit stuck. Once you have gone round every dot wait for them to dry!
Step 5: This style of nail will really need an over coat as it has the tendency to chip. so apply a layer of over coat on the nails and then your done! Perfect leopard print nails! (now to do it on the other hand! Eeek!)
Here is a different array of colours that you can do. As you can see some work better than others but give them all a go and see which ones you like best!
Still not to pricey, but you need to have time to sit down and do it. Also it might not work out great they first time, but keep practising as you will get better! It took me more than 5 attempts to get in right, and i still cant do my left hand very well!
