I have a quick nail art post for you today! It’s been a long time since I did leopard nails but when I do them, I like to create a little twist. A few months ago I did this leopard skittle nail using a brush-stroke leopard effect. I really wanted to recreate it and use it in a full mani, let’s take a look!
I started with CANVAS Lacquer Flaunt It! as a base (review and swatches here) then applied random large and small dots using CANVAS Lacquer Orchids. Then using ORLY Instant Artist Striper in Jet Black I used short brush strokes going in the same direction to create the leopard print effect. Make sure to add small strokes in between the purple dots to fill up any empty spaces.
I really love how these turned out. Simple yet fun! A holographic base is the perfect way to spice up a leopard print. I’ve hidden some photos after the jump of what these nails looked like in direct light. Make sure to take a look!
