Nail Art - Leopard Design


Hey everyone, so today i decided to do a quick tutorial on how to do a leopard print design for your nails. It may give people a few ideas for their nail designs! I will go through the all steps and will also include what nail polish i used for this look and a mini review on each polish! 
Firstly, for the base colour i decided to use a pinky coral shade which is a really pretty look for summer! This nail polish is from Revlon and is in the shade 'Tropical Temptation' number '914'

Mini review on Revlon Nail Enamel: I really enjoy using the Revlon nail polishes, they have great staying power and are in a variety of gorgeous shades. They also have cute packaging and the brush is quite thin but it gives accurate results. The only down part to this product is that the drying time is quite long and if you're not careful the polish will smudge!
Next, i took this minty green polish and made around 3/4 polka dots on each nail. I did this by simply using the brush that comes with the nail polish. The product i used for this was by Rimmel London Pro and was in the shade 'Peppermint' number '500'

Mini Review: This is a really excellent polish, it has an anti-fade colour system and has a maxi brush for really easy and fast application. The drying time isn't too long with this product either.
Next i took a cuticle stick for the application and using a black nail polish i surrounded the mint green dots with little rosettes and i also added a few single black dots to add to the effect. The nail polish that i used was by Rimmel London 60 seconds and was in the shade 'Blackout' number '800'

Mini Review: This nail polish again is good, especially for the price! It has the fastest drying time and again has a good,easy application. This product however does chip and the staying power isn't as good as the other nail polishes.
For the topcoat i used 'Stay Perfect' by No7 which just brings everything together and adds a glossy coat to my nails. Not to mention making my design last for a lot longer!
Thankyou! Hope you like the design :)
