Neon Pink Leopard Mani

Hey guys! I have noticed that a lot of you have expressed an interest in seeing more nail art for my giveaway question (which, by the way, ends in about 4 1/2 hours... enter if you haven't already!). I don't do much nail art usually, since I tend to stick with the glitters, so I'm not all that great at it... it really is fun though, and I will definitely try to keep getting better! Today I have a fun, simple leopard print mani to share with you. I used China Glaze Love's A Beach, a hot pink shimmery neon, and then I used my dotting tool to carefully paint Cult Nails Tempest, a white creme, and Nevermore, a black creme, on in a leopard print. Take a look!

On my nails:
1 coat Nail Tek III Protection Plus
2 coats China Glaze Life's A Beach
(dotted) Cult Nails Nevermore and Tempest
1 coat Cult Nails Wicked Fast

If you haven't done this before it is really easy -- just use your spot color (white here) to glob on some irregular-shaped spots, then outline with your other color (black here). The best way to make it look leopard-y is to not do a full circle, do like a half-moon and then another dot. Also, you can fill extra space with a few stand-alone dots.

I hope you liked this nail art attempt, it was really fun, insanely bright, and got a lot of attention! I will definitely be trying more leopard-prints (and nail art in general) again soon :)

You can find Cult Nails at their website or Facebook~

Have a great day! ♥


  1. What an interesting and challenging mani. This one will hard to give up. So pretty.

  2. This looks really great!

    I know what you mean about not doing nail art because of all the glitters - I'm just the same. I think you might have inspired me to have a go at something like this though :D

  3. Fabulous combo there! I have Life's A Beach and didn't really like the swatch, but this is a great way of using it up! Love the mani!
