It's a brand new week, and I got a nail tutorial to share with you today for Manicure Monday. It's been very long since I've done a post for ManiMonday, but since Valentine's Day is this Friday, I thought I'd do some nail art for the special holiday. It was very easy for me to learn how to do leopard prints on my nails a couple of years ago and because of Valentine's Day, I thought it'll be cool to do my nails in leopard print but in colors that might speak out "love"!
(1) Paint your nails with your lightest color. (2) Put some drops of the next darker color on a notecard, and draw uneven blobs on your nails using a (4) dotting tool or toothpick. These will represent the spots! (5) Take the darkest color and add a few drops on your notecard. Again, take the dotting tool or a toothpick and dip it into the drops and outline the spots, leaving gaps. This does not have to look neat or even! Last but not least, take a top coat and put a layer over each nail and wallah!
You'll notice in the video that I used the NYC Top Coat instead of the Essie one. Haha. Whoops! Watch in HD!
Polishes I used:- Sation Nail Lacquer in "Of Corset I'll Call You"
- O.P.I. Nail Lacquer in "Planks A Lot"
- O.P.I. Nail Lacquer in "My Address is 'Hollywood'"
- N.Y.C. - Long Wearing Extra Shiny Top Coat
Good luck, and have a great Monday and happy early Valentine's Day! :)
