Leopard Tutorial

Hello! Today is a tutorial for leopard/cheetah print! :) You don't necessarily have to use the same color combinations I did, and you can mix and come up with your own. Hope you enjoy! 

First, you start with your base color and in this case, I used Essence Color & Go White Secrets

Next step is to make "random" spots and I used China Glaze Golden Spurs for this. You can make it in different shapes, whether it's like an oval or just a random blotch.

Next I used Kiss Nail Art Paint in Black and slightly made a 'C' on the spot and made a backward C on the other side of the spot BUT not connecting to the first C.

Continue doing this on the other spots and then I added 3 random black spots to fill in the empty space.

And this is the end of the tutorial. Make sure you seal your nail art with top coat but be sure it's dry before you apply the top coat or else it will smear. Sometimes it happens to me even though I let it dry for a long time too. So apply top coat with caution!

I hope you enjoyed and happy polishing! :)
