Cheap Chica beauty: Leopard nails

So I've decided to stop being lazy and do something interesting with my nails. Bargain Princess has a tutorial on how to get the leopard nails look (Barganista also followed the tutorial and her nails look awesome!) , so I decided to give it a try.

Polishes used:

  • gold- Pure Ice "Jaguar" $2
  • black- NYC #119A $1
  • copper- CQ "Blazin' Copper" $2(?)
  • top coat- Wet N' Wild clear top coat $1

all these polishes were purchased from WalMart, but you don't have to use these same exact colors.

Tools used:
  • a piece of paper to drop polish on
  • toothpick
First, I did a layer of the gold polish for the base. I don't use a base coat, but if you want to use a base coat that's totally up to you.



Second, I took a couple drops of the copper and dotted it on the paper. Then, I took my toothpick, dipped it in the polish and made spots on my nails. The spots don't have to be perfect.



I then took a couple of drops of the black polish and dotted it on the paper. Using my toothpick again, I made what I describe as "backward c's" on the edge of the copper spots.



Top it off with your clear top coat and you're done! Very simple, huh?
