Let's Leopard

I've been doing nail art regularly for about eight months now, but there's one classic look I hadn't tried creating until recently: leopard print!

Now that I've leopard print, I can't believe I didn't do it sooner (and I'll definitely be playing with it more in the future)! I used the technique demonstrated by Sarah at Chalkboard Nails in her video tutorial, and it couldn't have been easier! Because the print doesn't have to look perfect or uniform—and, in fact, looks best when it's not either of those things—her method of using a dotting tool to create the spots works really well.

I used Zoya Odette (a shade from their new Naturel Collection) for the base, and then applied Zoya Marley for the light spots and China Glaze Rendezvous With You for the dark accents.

And just because it's such a lovely color and is my hands-down favorite from the Naturel Collection, here are a couple of swatches of Odette on its own. I think I'll be using this as a base for art quite a bit! It's a perfect transition color between winter and spring, in my opinion.

What about you—do you ever do leopard print nail art? What technique(s) and color combos do you like best?

Thanks for looking!
