Leopard Print False Nails Tutorial...

Monday, 3 October 2011
*When you read this I will be in my new job - eeek!!!*

These are what I created as one of some nails to choose from to wear to the fashion show I have recently blogged about. I won a giveaway from Charli a while ago and one of the prizes were these black false nails. I have to admit I wouldn't wear them as they are so decided to customize them so I would! Here is how I did it...
 False Nails
Cotton Buds
Nail Polishes of my choice:
 Topshop - At Worlds End
17 - Parma Violet
Models Own Nail Art Pen - Black
 After filing the nails to fit my nails I stuck them to the ends of cotton buds which makes painting them really easy. I made sure that both the thumb nails were stuck to the same cotton bud and so on.
 First comes my base coat colour which like I said was Topshops  At Worlds End and I love this blue, really opaque and I have used it loads!
 Then for the dots!
 Then using the Models Own Nail Art Pen in Black I just went around the spots and added random black spots to create the leopard print look.
 For that accent nail, but very subtle accent nail, I placed extra splodges of GOSH Holographic to the ring finger nails.
Then left them to dry!

What do you think?




  1. How did your first day go hun??

    You made these look sooo easy, yet when i do them they look a mess haha! xx

  2. Thank you for sharing the cotton bud tip! I find it terribly hard to paint fake nails without them turning over and messing up! I shall be trying this little trick tomorrow ;-) what did you use to stick them to the buds.. just nail varnish or glue or something?

  4. These look really good, I love the base colour you used! x

  5. They look great! I can never get leopard nails right. Mind you, I don'r ever wear falsers which would probably make it easier than trying to get angles right and paint half of them left handed!
