Summer Trend: Leopard Nail Art.

I am typically not a nail person. I do not have the patience to let my nails dry at home. I easily am distracted and can't sit still, who's with me on this? I think the last time I did my own nails was over a year ago. Don't get me wrong, polished nails are a MUST...I just prefer someone else to do them for me. I also just like that little bit of relaxation you get when getting your nails professionally painted. A few days ago I tried something new, the leopard print accent nail. I was shocked I didnt A. mess it up and B. it was fairly simple. I knew if I did all of my nails in the animal print, I would get sick of it after a I stuck with the one accent nail.

I didn't follow any tutorial and unfortunately I don't have one for you, I googled leopard nails and looked closely at the spots on the nails and went with it. The best advice I can give is to not think about it too much...I also think the color combination plays a big part in it. A few days after this I tried the design on my cousin with red, gold and black and it did not look too leopard like. The neutral color underneath made it look for realistic for me...
