Mani Monday: Leopard & floral

I’m so in love with these nails! My sister saw my video for my December favorites and was inspired by my flat iron to do her nails. Well she put it on Instagram and I just had to have it on my nails!

Here’s a step by step guide to how she did it. Start off painting your nails white with the ring fingers black.

Now she claims this is the easiest part is making the leopard design. Just make c’s on all the white fingers.

Now using acrylic paints she made the flowers. At first she made pink blobs.

She used a dotting tool to do it.

Do the same using the red paint.

It will look like this.
Then you mix white with the pink to make a lighter pink to add dimension to the flowers.

Do the same for the red paint.

This is the most important part. You kinda make it into a swirl.

To make the polka dots on the ring fingers you have to add a matte polish first. Let it dry completely and then dot clear gloss over it. I didn’t take pics of that one.

Add your clear coat when it’s completely dry. These nails have a lot of detail and layers.
