Leopard Print Nails

For a while I have been looking at lots of different nail art and been feeling very inspired, yesterday I decided to try out leopard print nails but in different vibrant colours.
I chose to go for Barry M Cyan Blue and painted an opaque coat over all my nails. 
I also squared of my nails simply because I think they look neater this shape.
Then, using a colour which I felt looked good with the blue I painted small dots all over my nails. I chose Illamasqua Jo'mina however I don't think this was a great brush for dots and therefore my dots were far from perfect.
Then using a liquid eyeliner I drew three small lines around each dot, this was quite messy but bare in mind that this was the first time I had tried this. I would recommend trying to do slightly curved lines and also to fill any large spaces with small dots.
I got this eyeliner idea of Gem, click  here to view her blog.

Then I added two coats of top coat making sure to cover the end very well.

I quite like this nail art but will be trying some more. I hope you enjoyed the post and will be trying it yourself, let me know if you have any questions.

  1. i would recommend that next time you use another bloggers idea/material (gem fatale) you at least have the courtesy to give them a mention/link to their blog and you don't try to pass it all off as your own idea etc.
    not being deliberately rude or anything but this sort of thing really frustrates me as i've had numerous 'ideas' stolen off of me by people without mentions etc and its upsetting xxx
