Fierce Red and Leopard Nail Tutorial!

Hello there everyone! 

So today i am going to show you how to do these nails:

Its a touch of leopard on your ring finger(4th finger) and then red nail polish on the rest of your nails. I think this is a really cute, easy nail design which looks great day to day, or for even a special event!

NAIL ROCK designer nail wraps in leopard.
So first thing you want to do is start with the leopard, I used the NAIL ROCK designer nail wraps in leopard, just on the fourth finger next to your pinkie! 

You could actually just paint the leopard design on your nail yourself with nail pens, there are tutorials how to do it on you tube, but i found this abit easier for me.

What you want to do is buff, file and shape the nail.You then want to use the acetone on the nail that comes with it. Then apply the nail wrap and hold it down for a couple minutes, and then shape it so it matches your natural nails. 


All you want to do then is paint the rest of your nails with a classic red colour! Red is one of my favourite because it makes your nails look very elegant, but i feel it can look abit plain by itself, so that's why i added the leopard.


OPI RED
I painted mine with an O.P.I nail lacquer, and the shade was just 'OPI RED'


I actually want to mention one of my other favourite classic red colours because it is much cheaper than O.P.I, and not everybody can get there hands on O.P.I because of availability. So the MAX FACTOR nail finity one is better and easier for people to get:

549, Red Passion



It is in the shade, 549 Red passion if you cant see it on the picture, it is a very similar colour to opi one ,that's why i mention it



Sally Hansen, Insta-Dri
Anti-Chip Top Coat.
Then i thought i should say what top coat i use.
And this is an all time favourite, i cant find on that is similar or any better and i really recommend it.

So this is the final look, please know that my nails have been painted like this for just under a week that is why they look chipped and why the nail wrap is peeling off, i am about to take them of and re paint them now!

Thankyou all for reading, i hope you try this out, and please subscribe so you can be updated on my new post every Wednesday+Saturday, Bye!

  3. How cute! We're getting a little bengal kitten next month, so when we go to pick him up, I think I'm going to have to be wearing this on my nails! He'll be a little half cat, half leopard!

  7. This looks AWESOME. Miss Glamorazzi did a similar one to this but with alternating leopard print nails - I fell in love with that design then and I love this one that you've done too! Defo need to get my hands on some nail wraps.
