Gold Leopard Print Nail Art
The nail art was all done with Gelish. The leopard print nails started with a base of Medieval Madness, and one coat of Twinkle for some gold sparkle. Then I used a dotting tool and drew on the leopard spots using Sweet Chocolate and Meet the King. The “bling” finger has a base of Meet the King, and I brushed on some loose gold glitter into the tacky layer before applying the top coat. I wasn’t able to get the glitter perfectly smooth, so there are some small imperfections. On my thumb and pinky, I applied two coats of Sweet Chocolate and then used nail art striping tape to create the triangle shapes that I filled in using Meet the King. And finally I applied some gold stud accents that were purchased at Michael’s craft store. Whew! This took some time. :)
I also found a cute little leopard print ring at Charming Charlies.
Here is a closer look at the pattern of the dress and the belt that I’m going to wear with it. You can see where I got the inspiration for the thumb and pinky with the round gold studs.
