Leopard Print Nail Art.

I've been meaning to give this ago for ages as I've seen it everywhere so thought I'd post my attempt at it. 

I decided to do a natural nude leopard print design and I used - 
Models Own - Nyla Nude 
Models Own - Champagne 
Maybelline Forever Strong
Marks and Spencer Clear Nail Varnish 
Barry M - Chocolate Brown 

I bought my nail art dotting tool from eBay here. 99p delivered from Hong Kong you really can't go wrong. I have made my own prior to receiving this which I might do a post on in the future but really can not fault the one I bought from eBay - so cheap and perfect for a whole host of nail art designs can't praise it enough. 

I used Maybelline forever strong as a base as my nails are suffering at the moment then painted two coats of Nyla Nude over. 

I used Chocolate Brown as the base for the leopard print and randomly dotted it over each nail in dots and semi-circles. 

Then I accented the brown with Models Own Champagne to highlight and fill in the dots. Finally I added a gloss of clear top coat to set all the colours. 

I think my first attempt is a little messy but I love how easy it was. It looks much better from a bit of a distance close up looks a little random! I'm looking forward to trying out so many different nail designs with my new dotting tools. I think leopard print will look so cute in pink shades! 

If you have any nail art links please send them over I'm in need of some inspiration for mine :)
