Abstract Nail Art Challenge - New tutorial (leopard manicure)

One of the many things I love about nail art is that you can see a design posted by someone, be inspired and recreate it exactly, or look at it and recreate it by making it your own. I have never been a fan of animal print, but lately...with the help of Sarah from Chalkboard Nails, I decided to give it a go. She has done many versions of the leopard mani but the last two: Rainbow Leopard Skittles , and Denim Leopard  which includes a video tutorial pushed me over the edge! Here's my version :)


 OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Kiss me on my Tulips, Pedal Faster Suzi
Pink leopard nails oh yeah!
 
 This was really easy to create. Base coat and 2 easy coats of My boyfriend scales walls (maybe my favorite white..ever). Use dotting tool to randomly place light pink spots. Use dotting tool to randomly outline and fill in bare spots with darker pink. Top coat with my lover, Seche Vite. And done!


 Looks like I'm going to be hooked on the leopard mani. Thanks again to Sarah at Chalkboard Nails for the inspiration. It's easy, and looks so damn cute. Plus, the color combinations are endless! I even did my other hand and it doesn't look like a 5 yr old did it. Heheheh.




Look for Day 15, the LAST day from this challenge on Friday and please check out what the other lovely ladies came up with!

Participants:
Emily from The Lacquerologist
Stephanie from Sincerely Stephanie
Jessica from Beautygnome
and me :) 
Have a great day everyone!!
