Step. 1. Always use a good base coat. I like Essie Protein Base Coat. It stops your nails colouring from polish and it makes the nail varnish last longer chip free.
Step 2. Paint your nails with a the first colour. For leopard you need to choose three colours. I like to pick colours within a theme… for example here I have done snow leopard.
Step 5. Take your third colour and literally wrap the other blobs in uneven lines, do not try to be neat, this is a free hand situation, just go with it, a little bit of shaky hand can actually help the result. If you don’t think your going to be able to go for it with a standard brush you can always buy a nail pen which makes the whole process much easier, its like doodling. They are available in most beauty shops now, or in London try Sally Beauty and Accessorize. You can also do some just plain bobs in the third colour.
Step 6. As you can see the nails are quite lumpy at this stage, don’t worry at all thats fine and to be expected. Just use a good topcoat and it will fill out and flatten perfectly. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Seche Vite, it really is fabulously good. I like to double topcoat. I think you get a longer lasting better looking result. The same process can be applied to any kind of combination you like. The addition of ‘special’ nail varnishes can make very exciting results. See my gold leafie type below… in stages and everything!
