Natural Leopard Nail Art

As soon as I got myself a gorgeous nude/beigey nail varnish I knew I wanted to try out some Leopard nail art with it. Leopard print is still my easy, go-to nail art for when I want to jazz up my nails as it requires very little dexterity and you don't even need nail art pens!

Here's what I used for my nail art look...

Collection 2000 Fast Stroke Liquid Eyeliner - Black
MeMeMe Nail Gloss in Alluring
Rimmel Lycra Pro in Posh Trash
Models Own Base/Top Coat



First I painted two coats of my base colour, in this case MeMeMe nail varnish in Alluring.

Then, using old hair grips, I dotted Rimmel Lycra Pro in Posh Trash at various points on the nail. You could also use a specific nail art pen for this as well as a pencil tip or, if you're careful, the normal nail varnish brush.

Then, using my liquid eyeliner, I roughly outlined the gold dots and filled in any spaces with leopard-like spots. Again, this can be done with a nail art pen.


Top tip: If you do use liquid eyeliner and find that it doesn't stay nicely on the nail varnish surface (think writing in felt tip on a cd) then a quick spritz of hairspray on the nails works a treat!

Having only ever used this eyeliner for nail art I don't know if this occurs with other brands, but I find that when the eyeliner dries it goes lighter and looks more grey. However, a top coat fixes this instantly so it's nothing to worry about.

And there you have it! Easy peasy!

  3. I'm definitely going to try this (I'm usually way too uncoordinated for such endeavors). Just stumbled across your blog and it is lovely, I am following now and look forward to catching up on past posts and reading more in the future.
