Leopard Print Nails

Hey lovely ladies. Again, I've disappeared. *sigh* The good news is I finally have a new laptop. It's going to be a lot nicer for blogging. I have tons of NOTD photos that I would love to share.

So first up is some nail art I did back in June during a nail challenge. I created leopard print nails. My base was Essie - Over the Knee. The leopard print was with Orly - Liquid Vinyl and a bronze Sally Hansen nail pen.

The technique was actually pretty simple. I used two coats of Essie - Over the Knee. I then used the bronze Sally Hansen nail pen to create the spots. It wasn't overly pigmented so I did a second coat on the spots. The black parts I did with toothpicks. Toothpicks are honestly the best tools for nail art! They are cheap and can be thrown away when you're done. So no extra cleanup.

The hardest part about nail art is waiting extra for it to dry. Otherwise, like me, you will have a few nails smear when you apply top coat. I really thought I waited long enough. Totally sucks, but I'll move on. ;)


 So what do you think? Will you try this out!? Honestly, it was pretty easy for me to do and I don't have much experience with nail art. I think it's adorable too.
