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
Selotape
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?

  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?

  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!
