Nail of the Day: Pink Leopard

So this was my first attempt at doing leopard print nail art. I think it turned out super well, & I am so proud of myself, haha. It actually surprisingly wasn't very hard to do! I now wish I had taken pictures of every step to show you all how easy it actually was, but unfortunately I didn't, so you only get to see the final product. I used OPI "Dusk Over Cairo" as my base - it's a really pretty shimmery, rose pink. After two coats of that, I used Nubar "Orange Cream" to make little dots - 2 or 3 on each nail. After that all dried, I used my new Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Black to draw on the leopard print. This was a little tricky at first, because the stuff was not like normal nail polish, and it would smudge really easily if I wasn't careful. Once I got the hang of it, it was really easy to use. The tip is nice and fine too, so it was easy to make lines as thick or thin as I wanted. I used a coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Hardener as a top coat to seal it all in. And ta-da! Beautiful pink leopard print nails! I can't wait to try different colour combinations with this pattern, as well as different types of nail art.
