Pastel Leopard Print Nail Art

One of my favorite prints is the leopard print. I love how it looks so girly and sexy at the same time. And other than shirts, shoes and bags, wouldn't it also be lovely to have leopard print on our nails?

But since it's the Spring/Summer season now, I decided to play around with the colors and used pastel colors instead of the usual brown and black that we see.

What do you think? :)

Here are the things / colors that you need for this design :

I used :
-LA Colors White Polish
-Orly Cotton Candy 
-Orly Green Apple
-Tony Moly RM04 Apple Mint
-Tony Moly TR03 Mocha Chocolate
-Seche Vite Top Coat
-Dotting tool (use bobbie pin)
-Fine brush (use toothpick)  

Here is the tutorial :

I also decided to use brown polish to outline the prints to make it look more fresh and subtle.

I really love nail arts like this because it doesn't require steady hands. All you need is to randomly paint the prints and it comes out perfectly. 

But remember to let all the layers dry completely. I always wait 30 minutes up to 1 hour before I apply top coat, especially if I used white / black polish. White and Black polishes are so sensitive to top coat, they smudge and ruin the design the moment you apply it. Just to be safe, make sure all the layers are completely dry. :)

I hope you like this Summery nail design!
