Hello lovelies!

Today I have for you a glitter leopard accent nail art tutorial.

To get this look I painted my pinkie, fore finger and thumb in Zoya Normani and for the other fingers I used Essie Mamba. On top of Essie Mamba I added Zoya Bar as a glitter accent. Then I added leopard details to two fingers and finished off the whole look with my Essie Good to Go top coat.

I have already shared some thoughts on all nail polishes for this nail look. You can find more info by clicking on the product name above.

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have a super easy and very straightforward nail art tutorial for you. This is another leopard nail design, you would expect it from me :)

To get these fun nails simply paint your nails white, add some blobs of different color to each nail and then outline them with black. I guess you can play with base color and leopard skin color to get a different look each time and this nail design is so easy that it variations are worth the try.

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have a special post for you, a new post series I am very excited about but before I get to the point I need to share something with you first.

Many times, while looking for nail art inspiration online, I have seen these super clean, almost print like nail designs. I love freehand nail art but these manicures grew on me with their pinpoint precision and perfect detail. It turned out these were stamped nails!

Stamping ABC project
I know, you will be right to ask how could I have not paid attention to this whole new  nail design world before? Well, for some reason now I am absolutely new to stamping but also firmly determined to get into it. I decided to start stamping nail art post series where I will learn the art of stamping, show you my progress, products I use and comment things I have discovered. So welcome to Stamp ABC, my stamping nail art home school experience!

I did a huge research, mainly to get there is too much to learn, but also to make my tool choices before I start the Stamp ABC project. I kept getting back to MoYou London products as they immediately got me with intriguing deigns and super interesting image plates. I shared my stamping home school initiative with MoYou London and they sent me two image plates of my choice. So for my Stamp ABC project I will be working with two amazing ladies, meet Suki and The Pro.

Suki  is a massive image plate with a huge design which is created by combining separate designs. It comes in a beautiful individual case, attached to a plastic base and covered with a protection foil which needs to be removed prior to use. MoYou London Suki collection features several designs, the one I got is number 07.

The Pro is also a massive rectangular plate. This one features 16 individual designs. It comes individually packed but I already removed the protection foil. I was so eager to test these images out so excuse some nail polish residue on this one. Of the whole MoYou London The Pro collection I got plate number 03. Both plates measure 6x12cm.

You can check the whole MoYou London stamping plates range on their website: moyou.co.uk

The minute I got these image plates I stamped one of The Pro plate design in my ring finger and I must admit this was the easiest nail design I have done, ever. I had prepared for some mess and even failure which sometimes happens when you do something for the first time. Maybe this is the rookie luck helping me out, but the stamper picked out the design perfectly from the first try and then I transferred it to the nail with ease. I did not even use special stamping polish just because I do not own any yet and had read metallic colors could work.

I am amazed how I got a whole manicure done simply by combining OPI Solitaire with China Glaze At Vase Value on the ring finger + a leopard skin stamp!

I am super happy how my first stamping attempt with MoYou London The Pro turned out but unfortunately this is all I can tell you at this point. I promise to update you regularly on my ho my plates work, my stamps, the products I use and the designs I create.

I would love to have you with me for my stamp ABC project!

Hello nail art lovers!

You know I love animal print nails for they make a great accent in a nail art design. I have shown you all kinds of animals including a zebra, a tiger, a snake and even a butterfly and today I want to show you an easy leopard print manicure. Read on for a tutorial how to make these animal nails.

First, paint some of your nails a peach shade and some of them white.
I wanted to tone down the wild animal effect so I chose a delicate peach for my main color. You will use your white nails for the leopard print so chose them based on where you want that accent to be. I usually choose my ring finger and thumb, I did the same for this manicure, too.

Add the leopard detail.
I love doing leopard nails because the leopard print is rather random and is very difficult to get it wrong. All you need is some random peach polish blobs on your white. These are your while cat spots.

After you have them in place, get some black on a stripping brush and make little lines around the blobs. Tip! Do not cover the whole area around the spots with black, you are aiming for a furry effect rather than a circle. To make your animal skin look more realistic, as any peach leopard should look, add tiny strokes and dots of black in between your leopard spots. This will fill the design and make it look more complete.

I am adding a close up of the leopard nail art to show you how random and a little messy it really is. I am doing this to show you do not have to worry if it is not perfect when you look it from 2 mm distance, it will look great from a normal distance. Tip! Stop telling yourself you won’t try it because you cannot draw, this is not a drawing but few random blobs of color with the cutest effect :)

Last, add some top coat.
I have said this before, but it won’t hurt if I say it again, so pardon me for sounding like a broken record… Such nail designs with several colors added one after another usually turn patchy. To smooth out the design use a fat clear top coat which will conceal the bumps and lumps. If you want to play a little and go for a more realistic animal skin, you can give your peachy leopard the matte treatment :)

Tip! You can recreate this design using whichever two colors you love. The trick that holds it together is to use one of the base colors for making the blobs for your leopard. If you decide to play with this leopard nail art I’d love to see how it turned out!
