Nail'd: My very first Leopard Print Nails!


Happy Monday! Back to work, can’t say I’ve missed it though!

So nail art- it seems to be becoming increasingly popular thanks to the fantastic Wah Nails, people posting their designs on their blogs and step-by-step YouTube tutorials. Now even the complete amateur (i.e. me) can give it a go!

To be honest the thought of nail art used to conjure up images of the tragic 90s stuff at my local salon.  But having watched the leopard print tutorial on Wah’s website I was convinced. I ordered the Wah Nails and Models Own nail art pen and scoured the internet for nail art ideas. I’ve got a long list of youtube videos and images I want to try and recreate and share the results with you. Hopefully as I gain more confidence I’ll be able to create my own designs.

So first off leopard print...
 And this was the video I found the most useful...

Personally I'm quite impressed with the results considering it was my first attempt (they do look better in real life). It was really easy, you can't really go wrong with leopard print because its all squiggly lines- good if you don't have a steady hand. I'd definitely recommend it if you're a first-timer like me, leopard print is cute and classic and looks great on your nails!

Let me know what you think?  Are there any designs you think I should try out?

Love, S

  11. Wow these are really good! Thanks for your comment on my blog - I totally agree! Weather is crazy hot one minute and chilly the next, long socks are my summer staple for these days, makes it easy to cover up a little bit when it gets warm xx
