Tutorial: Leopards Spots

Today I would like to show you a quick and easy tutorial for how to create a leopard spotted manicure. This is a very common technique and I've seen many tutorials on how to create this look, but hopefully one more won't hurt. You can play around with different color combinations from traditional leopard colors to wild and crazy neon ones. I think this always makes for a fun manicure and is easy to create no matter what your skill level is since precision isn't key for this look...



  1. Start by painting your nails your nails with an ivory (or your desired) base color. Apply enough coats to reach opacity and allow to dry as usual.
  2. Using a shimmery or glittery gold apply random shaped spots to the nail using the polish brush
  3. With a dotting tool dipped into the purple lacquer, draw 2-3 C-shaped curves around each of the gold spots
  4. Add small purple spots using the dotting tool by drawing little 'commas' in the space between the larger spots.
  5. Top coat and enjoy!
Once you 'master' the larger spots, you can try making smaller spots for a more detailed mani...

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions and as always I would love to know what you think of this!

Thanks for looking!
