Based on Leopard Nail Painting Tutorial by AKdesign's
To start clean and file your nails. Even if you haven't got polish on them it's always good to go over them with nail polish remover: this helps get rid of any build up and will help the polish grip better and therefor last long!

1) I started with Sally Hansen HARDasNAILS Xtreme Wear Nail Color in (4860-01)Invisible.

2) After allowing the base coat to dry, go ahead and add the spots! For a more natural looking print be sure to rotate your brush, you'll get a subtle difference in the shape and orientation of you spots, which will make the print look more natural. For my spots I used Nails Inc. Polish in Jeremy Street which I got free in som shitty glamor mag.
Love the color but it doesn't have the best staying power(I'm pretty tough on my nails).

3) Use a liquid Eyeliner to draw around your spots. I used my favorite brand of liners Annabelle Liquid Liner in BLACK OUT. This shade is a black with a hint of super fine shimmer. Adds a nice bit of glitz!

*I used a reference image or two making sure that none of the spots looked the same. Going for a natural looking print remember!

4) Finally, after you have ALLOWED THE EYELINER TO DRY gently apply your clear top coat. Again I used HARDasNAILS Xtreme Wear Nail Color in (4860-01)Invisible.
