DIY Leopard Print Nail Tutorial

categories: ,

Hello everyone! First of all, I would like to apologise on behalf of the Petite Dollies for our lack of activity! We've all been quite busy but we hope to present you all with some fun and exciting content in the coming months!

Today, I have a cute and easy nail tutorial to add that final touch to your outfits! I think this would look really cute using a burgundy red and gold nail polish, particularly as autumn is just around the corner for those of you in the northern hemisphere!

 3 x Nail Polish Colours (1 for the base, 1 for the spots and 1 for the pattern on the spots.)
1 x Extra Small Nail Art Dotting Tool (I bought mine from ebay)
Several Q-tips
1 x Base Coat Polish
1 x Top Coat polish

Cover all your nails with a base coat and leave to dry.

Paint your nails with the first colour of your choice. You can paint them all the same colour or interchange them like I did here. Leave to dry.


Using a Q-tip and the second colour of nail polish, paint dots of various size on each nail. In this case, less is more as we're going to add more detail to them in the next step.

This is where the spots start to come to life! Using the last colour of nail polish and the dotting tool, carefully draw thin squiggly lines around the edge of dots you painted in the last step. I also added a few more dots and squiggles on parts of the nail I thought looked a little bare.

Lastly, apply a top coat to ensure your new nails last and you're done! :D

  As someone who usually goes for one plain colour of nail polish, it was fun to experiment with these leopard print nails! You can mix and match colour combinations depending on your outfit and it's really quite easy to do so I hope you try it out :)

Thank you for reading and I'll see you next post!
