Nail Of The Day: Leopard & Red Nail Art

Press Sample


How's your Friday treating you?? I woke up thinking about nails (wow, shocking). I was shopping at Harmon's last night and saw these little Fingrs brand fake nails with the cutest leopard print design on them:

I'm not a fan of wearing artificial nails, but I kept thinking, "I NEED this design on my nails...NOW!".  So when I got up, I went to work creating a mani inspired by my shopping trip last night. I painted the nails that I wanted to do the "V" design on first, letting them dry completely before moving on to the next step: scotch tape. Taking 2 pieces of tape per nail (and pressing them on my hand first a few times to remove some of the stickiness), I tape off the V and then painted with the alternating color. I used dotting tools to blob on my spots, and then a striping brush for the glitter:



Colors used: OPI "All I Want For Christmas Is OPI" (the red), OPI "My Vampire Is Buff" (the nude), and OPI "My Favorite Ornament" (gold glitter), Nicole By OPI "Taupe Of My Class" & "Promises In The Dark" for the spots.

Am I the only freak dreaming about nails? :)  What's on your nails for the weekend??

Thanks for stopping by!
