My First Attempt at Nail Art!

Hello everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  Mine was pretty relaxing.  I just watched a lot of TV and spent some quality time with my wonderful boyfriend.

Today I want to share with you my first ever attempt at nail art.  It came out pretty decent! I got the inspiration from this YouTube video.  If you like nail art, you should check out this channel.  It has lots and lots of easy tutorials for all kinds of pretty designs.

The video I followed was for a Heart Leopard design.  I changed up the colors and didn’t use the heart.  I was drawn to this design because I like the way it’s only on part of your nails.  I’ll call this a Pink and Silver Leopard Gradient, for all intents and purposes.

My thumb nail came out the best, but I really love the design on all of my nails.   I wish I had used a darker pink so the silver didn’t steal the focus, but overall I’m very pleased.  I’ll definitely be doing more leopard designs in the future.  It’s so easy and very trendy right now.

I used OPI Don’t Burst My Bubble for the base color.  The leopard spots are Nicole by OPI Naturally and they’re outlined in OPI I Haven’t the Foggiest.  I applied one coat of Seche Vite top coat to finish up the look.

For step by step instructions, watch the video by Cute Polish (linked above).

So what do you think of this design? Will you try it? Let me know in the comments!
