40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Teal + Leopard

(promotional samples ahead)

I have been trying to do more art. I feel like swatching is taking over my brain...and while I'm not complaining at all...it does leave me craving some wacky art every now and again. So I joined a couple of challenge groups. This is my first attempt at Leopard Print and following an art prompt.

Teal & Pink Leopard Print

I had never tried leopard print before...and I think it shows. I did this all with my dotting tool...I might try a different method next time. This isn't as easy as it looks, but it isn't as hard as I make it out!

I think this might be the first and last time I try leopard print...but I like the color combo at least!

  2. Nichole, this is absolutely gorgeous. Honestly, had you not said that you'd never done a leopard print before, I would have never known. Kickass.

  10. We must have the same pattern number, because I did leopard nails for this color too! These look fantastic and I can't wait to see what you come up with for the rest of the challenge (:

  14. Love your color combo. I struggles with the only leopard print mani I ever tried. Everyone makes it look so easy but mine looked like strange blobs. You're turned out a lot better than mine.

  15. You did such a great job with this! I love leopard manis, but I don't have the balls to try it myself yet. I'm awful at nail art. Great choice of colors too!

  17. I know I'm supposed to be looking at the teal, but I can't wrench my eyes away from the amazing pink Cakeaversary holo! The pattern looks really good, and I like the funky color combo- who says leopard can't be pink/teal?

  18. Oh! I love this! I like unusual colours with leopard print, and I've not tried it with teal before. Beautiful!
