Blue Cheetah Nails!

It's that time of the year where they'll say animal prints are in.
I'm not a fan of clothings with animal prints so i've decided to design my nails instead.

Here's the result:

How to do it:
1.) Prepare a light base color for your nails. This one I used Chic Classic's Love Orchid in Glaze.
2.) Choose another color and add blobs to your nails. I used Caronia's Blue Chill in Frosted.
It doesn't have to be perfect. You won't need a dotting tool for this. But if you are having trouble with adding them i'd suggest you use chopsticks or toothpicks. In my case I just used the brush itself. Make sure it is thin enough so it would dry easily. Concentrate on a side and leave a blank space for the base to peep.
3.) Here's where the fun part begins. Outline the sides of the blobs. My tip is don't make it too perfect. It's best when you make the corners a little bit thicker on the other side. I used a nail pen for this but a nail art brush is also good.
4.) Lastly, protect your design by using a clear nail polish. Any brand would do.

Optional: Taking long to dry your nails? Try Bobbie's Quickdry!

I hope you enjoyed this post and have fun painting your nails!


  1. I just found your blog through Haniya Sajid over at My Own Nail Art on her Talent Spotlight post featuring your designs.These are adorable! I love that the Cheetah is only an accent on the nails and doesn't cover the entire nail. Keep up the great posts!
