NOTD ~ Mint leopard print

[NOTD - nail of the day]

Another simple design focusing on the whole statement nail idea. This is the first time I've done this kind of art where my ring finer would be the one standing out from the rest.

Here are the nail polishes I've used for this design:

Nails Inc in Caramel, Rio Professional Nail art in black and ORLY in Jealous Much

Apply a base coat before main base colour. For this shade I had to apply two coats to look more opaque.

Using the brush from the nail polish I made short dashes around the nail keeping a good distance between them as I would be painting an "outline" and miniature 'C's in the spaces available.

Use the fine black nail brush to carefully "outline" the dashes but not completely. Almost like painting a 'C' as well as small ones in the spaces. Put on top coat and the design is sealed.

Et voila~
nail art complete~
