DIY: nails

To get the bold leopard nails you'll first need to prep nails. Gently file to shorten and shape. Then put on a base coat to smooth the nail surface. Then add two thin coats of color, it doesn't have to be pink, and wait for the nail polish to dry. You can then use an ear bud to make little spots with a darker color (whichever you want the spots to be in). Do this slowly to get the best results. For precise detailing you can use either a new ear bud where you would need to mold the cotton so that it gives smaller strokes or a toothpick. Carefully use black nail polish to contour the darker dots so that it looks like the picture above. After drying, you have the option to apply a top coat to keep the color from chipping.
