Freehand Leopard Print

Creative title I know.. but this is my first successful attempt at freehand leopard print on my own nails :)
I adore freehand leopard print manicures... but my previous attempts at recreating them have been epic fails. Finally, I followed Kayla Shevonne's tutorial for it and finally found success.

I will definitely be recreating this design in the future. The only thing I may change is the size of the spots, I think they are a little too big... Otherwise, I'm quite happy with this design.

I used Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Cafe Au Lait as the base, then splotched on spots of Barry M Gold Foil and then added the details using a nail art brush and Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Bittersweet.

Today's mani is a classic leopard print look... next time... more colors! :D

Also, I have a tutorial in the making at the moment, I know I keep promising it but it's taking much longer than expected... Please be patient :)
