Hey there nail enthusiasts!

Today’s mani inspired nail art is all about the Leopard Print!

I stumbled upon this fun clutch on whowhatwear.com and thought what a great piece to feature for my Friday blog post!

There’s always room in every woman’s wardrobe for a sleek clutch.  This one’s perfect and the price is even better!  It’s $48 from cwonder.com.  For an extra $10 you can even have it personalized with a monogram.

I also decided to use some of my fall colors from Zoya’s Cashmere Collection for my nail art.

Follow these simple steps to get these trendy leopard print / racing stripe nails!

 

Step 1:  Start with solid tan nails and a solid red nail on your ring finger.  I used 2 coats for each color.
Tan: Flynn – Zoya
Red: Livingston – Zoya

Step 2:  I decided to try out my Art Club Duo pen and used it to create my irregular spots.  A few squiggle dots works great and a couple chunky “c” shapes.
Black Spots: Art Club Nail Art Duo -Pen – Black

Step 3:  On my accent nail I used a striping brush from Art Club in Electric Universe.  Create a thick blue center line by painting 3 stripes, 1 to the right, 1 to the left and 1 down the middle to fill in the gap.  Or if you have a medium size striping brush you can paint 1 fat line down the center.   On either side of the blue leave some space and paint 1 black stripe on each side.

Tools I used:
Black Stripes: Art Club Nail Art Duo -Striping Brush – Black
Blue Stripe: Art Club Striping Brush Electric Universe

Step 4:  Allow the polish to set for about 3-5 minutes and seal it all off with your favorite dry fast top coat. I used Seche Vite!
