Leopard print seems to be the most in thing this season. I see it everywhere in the shops from clothing to accessories. This nail art incorporates leopard print, but in a soft and pretty kinda way.

I used 2 colours for the base, however they look very similar you can hardly see the difference in these photos. OPI - Your Royal Shyness is used nearer to the cuticles and MAC - Cream Light Affair is used where the leopard print is.

As for the middle brown stripe, I used OPI - Suzi Loves Cowboys. I also stick on silver striping tape along the brown lines.

The leopard print is hand drawn using OPI - Wooden Shoe Like to Know? and Tickle My France-Y

To give it a soft look, I added white acrylic flowers and white pearls. Some gold metal buttons were also added to give it more colour.

This is a beautiful manicure. Even though this print can generally be a bit garish, you've made it look muted and classy. Very nice :)
