Manicure Monday: A Red Leopard Mani


red-leopard-manicure-tutorials (1)

Alright, y’all! This is my first time EVER attempting to freehand any kind of nail art.  First of all, I just don’t have steady hands.  Add that to the fact that my left hand is pretty much useless, nail art is just not my thing.  I have only recently mastered the art of painting my own nails, and even that is a struggle on a bad day. Lol! 

Anyway, I have always loved cute leopard print manis, and I’ve watched and read sooooo many tutorials.  They always make it look so easy… after all, leopard print is supposed to be imperfect.  So, how hard could it be? I bought a few Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens last weekend, and finally decided to give it a shot.  I’m happy to report it was suuuuuper easy.

I started with a base coat, and two coats of Julep “Jackie” red polish.  (love this shade of red!)


Next, I used a white nail art pen to add imperfect white spots to both of my ring fingers…

 What’s on your nails this week?
