Leopard Print Nails Tutorial

People are always asking me how I do this design on my nails. I decided to share the wealth and do a tutorial on it. It's very simple and it's a great way to make a statement. Enjoy and I would love to see pics of your final results so feel free to email me.

What You'll Need
-Base Color
-Color for Spots
-Color for Edges
-Clear Nail Polish
-Toothpick
-Index Card

STEP ONE
Prep your nails as you would usually do before painting them. Then, apply the base (allover) color to your nails.

STEP TWO
With a different color nail polish, paint 3-4 (or more depending on length of nail)  short strokes on each nail. Be sure not to add too much polish to each "dot" or it will get lumpy.

STEP THREE
Pour a small amount of the color you're going to use for the edges on an index card. then using a toothpick, dab some of the polish around the edges of the "dots" you made. Don't complete enclose the dots, it will make it look more leopard-like. Wait a couple of minutes before applying a top coat. And voila! You have fun, cute nails.
