Classy Leopard Print

Without even trying to I managed to re-create one of my own designs. The other day I was feeling a little uninspired and decided to go for a very classic animal print (my go-to when I'm not sure what I want on my nails)… but when I was finished the design looked awfully familiar to me…

Sure enough when I looked back into my own archives I found the design from August 2012. I had finally found a tutorial that helped me with my freehand leopard print skills, but promised to recreate the design again only with smaller spots. Well without realizing it, I finally came through on my promise…


This time I started with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff. I used a dotting tool to add the gold spots using Pier-1 Imports Platinum Spark and then using a small nail art brush I painted the extra details using Essie Little Brown Dress.


I much rather the smaller spots compared to the larger ones, and It's also cool to see my freehand and photo taking skills improve over the last year…
