Leopard nail art - Fun and easy mani

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer evenings with family and friends. I know I am.

This fun leopard nail art is easy. I had on a base coat of Orly Pixy Stix and didn't want to start from scratch. So I decided to add leopard spots to it. I didn't want too many spots so I just used a lower corner of my nails to anchor my starting point.

I used acrylic paint to create the spots. I started with a tan color in the very corner and made it lighter as I came up the top of the nails. Then I used black acrylic paint to create the detail. Of course I used my MASH Nails brushes.

I like how they came out. I haven't been able to do much nail art lately and I have missed it. Question for you though... Am I the only one who holds my breath when I do nail art? I have to keep reminding myself to breathe. And I arch my right foot. What is your quirk when you create nail art?

  4. Your nails look great! I love the leopard print, too. And I have noticed that there are certain times when I hold my breath..just not when I do nail art, because I've yet to fully attempt that. :)
