leopard nails.




Okay guys, so I have another nail-treat for you. You see that up there? I'm in love. I have recently converted to the leopard lovers. Which I never thought I would've, I used to think it was trashy - But I have since figured out that if you wear it right and not too much it can look so cute. So I decided, where better to have a pop of leopard than on your nails? I mean - they are always with you so you always have a pop of spunk added to any outfit. ;) So here is a quick tutorial over how I did my nails - you can do them with some pops of color (like me) or you can just use a beautiful bronze to make it look more "natural". I hope you enjoy. :)






What you are going to need.
1. A Brownish/bronze or whatever color you would like to have as your base color. I used two colors - the little one on the far left and the love and beauty one second to the right.
2. Accent colors for the spots. (you can see I used colors - you can just use a brown or whatever)
3. A dark color. (I used plum, but black will work perfectly.)
4. Toothpicks.
5. A sheet of paper.
6. Top coat.



 What you need to do.
1. Apply your base color. Let it dry.
2. Put your accent colors on a piece of paper, just drop some of it so you can dip your toothpick in the colors. 
3. Put random spots of the accent color over your nail. Apply with a toothpick.
4. Take your dark color (black/plum/whateva) and drop a dime size amount onto the piece of paper. 
5. Dip your toothpick in the paint on the paper. Apply it to the nail around the spots in a "C". 
6. Do this on allll of your nails.
7. Apply top coat.
