Mini Tutorial: Leopard Nails

Another nail tutorial; this is the first time I've really tried leopard print and I'm super pleased with how they turned out! I think the shimmery gold (17 high gloss in sphinx) really makes it look that much better. And because of the imperfect nature of the pattern doing it on your right hand is pretty easy without messing up c: (I do recommend putting some topcoat over though; otherwise the marker can smudge terribly or fade!)
QUICK NOTE: To everyone who asked about the marker and top-coat, I'm not wearing any topcoat (I've run out) but I recommend letting the marker completely dry for an hour or so before adding it. My marker is bog-standard asda's own, but sharpie would probably work better as it has a finer nib.

  1. This is stunning! What marker pen and topcoat are you using? I tried it with a marker once but the topcoat smudged it and totally ruined it! You've got it down though, it's fabulous! (: xx

    I was just thinking about doing something like that this morning. I came up with the same steps but it's cool to see that it actually works.

  10. Using a market is brilliant - I would have never thought of that! When I lived in Korea I used to occassionally go and have nail art done and the ladies in the salon would have these tiny paint brushes and paint all kind of designs (I had Hello Kitty Nails once). I sure miss living in asia!
