Cheetah Print Nails




Introduction: Cheetah Print Nails

Making cute nail art that's affordable, reasonable, and totally do-able on short, natural nails :) …

These adorable nails are so fast and easy! Read my easy step-by-step tutorial on how to do these wild, colorful nails! Great for summer! (Thank you Athena for being my foot canvas!!) Please rate and add comments- I'd really appreciate it!

Step 1: Materials

You may need these to complete my version of the cheetah spots. The nice thing is that cheetah spots look great in any color! While trying out the spots, I noticed that Neon Melon doesn't show up well on the white, so I used Sinful Colors "Gorgeous" ($2 at Fred Meyer) instead. Also, keep nail polish remover and Q-Tips handy!

Step 2: Applying the Base Coat

First, remove all the polish completely. Then use a white (I took the Kiss Nail Art Paint, but used a wider brush) to fill in all nail.

Step 3: Color

Start by randomly dabbing spots (make sure the white is totally dry first!!)

Step 4: Using Black to Outline

Now, use the black Kiss Nail Art Paint and outline the color spots in different ways. Also, Put little spots of just black in blank spots. This design is so cute, and it is so perfect for summer! Wait 30 minutes before applying top coat. I also included a picture of the leopard print on fingernails! Please rate and add comments- I'd appreciate it! Enjoy!! :)

Step 5: Inspiration

Not sure what colors to use? Here's some designs I've used on fingers using cheetah print!
