NOTD: Leopard Print


When Helen from The Lovecats Inc did these leopard print nails for a guest post, I absolutely knew I had to get them on my nails!

The base colour is Models Own Utopia, which is a gorgeous, pale greyish lilac. To be honest, it's the sort of shade that'd be easy to miss on the stand, but after seeing swatches of it online I knew I had to have it! I then used the Models Own White Nail Art Pen to create the white splodges and the same pen in black to do the bordering. It was surprisingly easy to do because the leopard print doesn't have to be neat, I think messier is better!

I think my next bit of nail art is going to have to be something Christmassy! I love the fair isle design, so I may go for that.

What nail art are you loving at the moment?

    1. Honestly, I'm not very skilled when it comes to nail art either so I reckon you could definitely do it! The beauty of this design is that it doesn't have to be neat :-) xx
