Framed Leopard

 

 

 

Inspired by @just1nail on Instagram.

final

Done with a striper and detailer from Winstonia Store. Check “Dandelion” post for a detailed review. Can be purchased here: http://winstoniastore.com/nail-art/brushes/8-pcs-nail-art-brushes-pink.html

Steps:

white

Start with white nails. Here I used two coats of Cult Nails “Tempest”

ruffian

Make the nails ‘ruffian’ by outlining the top of the nail with black. I did this freehand but you can also use a reinforcement as a guide. There are many tutorials for this if you Google it!

framed

Add black tips! I also freehanded these but if you don’t have a steady hand or are just starting out you can use striping tape.

1

With a detail brush, add open circular shapes throughout. I like to start at the top and work my way down.

2

You can make some of the shapes open on one end as well.

3

Fill entire nail, but make sure they aren’t too close together.

4

Add little “C’ shapes all throughout and in between the circles.

half done

Continue this process on every nail.

(Glossy version)

Seal in your design with a glossy or matte top coat, and you’re done!

**If you’re ever inspired by me or recreate one of my manicures, hashtag (#)nailstormed on Instagram so I can see and possibly feature it at the end of each month!!**
