You won’t believe how quick and easy it is to paint yourself these super stylish leopard print nails! I’ve gone for pink, but you can choose whatever colour combination you like!

You will need:

– one colour for the base coat (I chose baby pink from BARRY M)

– one colour for the circles (I chose hot pink from PRIMARK)

– black nail pen (You get a cheap and good one from PRIMARK!)

To get your leopard print nails simply follow these 3 steps:

Step 1 – Choose a base coat and paint your nails.

Step 2 – Choose a second colour and draw some random circles on.

Step 3 – Use your black nail pen to carefully surround your circles. By doing so leave small gaps. After that, add two or three individual little dots, if you can find space.

Step 3 – Use your black nail pen to carefully surround your circles.

At the end you can paint a clear top coat on if you want, but it is not necessary.
Et voila! Super cool and glamorous leopard print nails!

Try out your nail polish on tips

If you are one of these girls who cannot get enough nail polish and who likes to try different colours and glitters together to get the best combinations you should get yourself some tips to try your nail polish on.

Cotton buds glued on a nail tip. Makes it so much easier to apply and test your nail polish!

I usually get myself the extreme curved nail tips because they look lovely and they give your nails this natural curve.

My tip box has 10 different tip sizes, from which I only use 4 – the rest goes in the bin, OR as you can see in the picture, I glue them on a cotton bud. For this I use super glue or the glue I use for gluing the tips on my nails (Pardon my English! I am no native and also I am hungry!).

This little idea makes it so much easier to try out your newest possession, without possibly messing up your nails!

This is how my nails look currently with the curved nail tips on:
