Leopard Print For Summer!

I think leopard print is possibly my favourite nail art. It looks great, is easy to do and there are so many variations that there’s always a new colour combination or placement to try out.

I recently did a pastel bright version using Barry M’s Gelly Paints in Prickly Pear and Greenberry and used their nail art pen to add detail.


These are two of the best Gelly shades in my opinion and they look fantastic together! Here’s my finished nail design..


To get this look I added two layers of Prickly Pear over my base coat. Once my nails were dry I sponged Greenberry onto the bottom third of each nail. I then used a dotting tool to make the spots. To use a more equal share of each polish I added spots of green where lilac was the base and lilac spots on the green. I finished the design by adding the black detail and sealing with top coat.


I don’t think I will ever get bored of leopard print nails! What do you think of this colour combination?


Born Pretty Store: Nail Art Studs!

I was recently contacted by a lovely lady at Born Pretty Store who kindly offered to send me a product for review. I’d heard a little about them from a few blogs I read regularly and after browsing their site and seeing what a fantastic range they have I knew this was an offer I couldn’t refuse!

They have a huge amount of nail art supplies along with other cosmetics and accessories all at really affordable prices! I picked out this set of super fun studs which has 260 3mm squares in 12 cute colours. You can find this set HERE.

I was told it would take between 2-4 weeks to receive my parcel but was very happy when it arrived after just over a week!

Studs are a brilliant way of jazzing up your nails with very little effort! Here’s one way I’ve worn these studs and I will definitely be posting more very soon!



I really love the versatility of these little squares, there are so many designs you could do with them! They’re a great size for each nail too and these colours are just lovely.

I am definitely very impressed by Born Pretty Store. They have wonderful products, affordable prices and great service! What more could you want?

Blue & Pink Leopard Nails!

I absolutely adore leopard print, especially as nail art! I’ve done a couple of posts of leopard nail designs now but there’s always another colour combination to try out and show you all. Today’s variation features two very pretty Makeup Revolution polishes!


For this cute design I painted my nails with two coats of True Blue. I then added spots of You Need Love with a dotting tool. Once dry I added the detail with Barry M’s black nail art pen and finished with matte topcoat.


I think these polishes look fantastic together!


I’ve been playing around with my Makeup Revolution polishes a lot since I got them so expect to see quite a few more nail arts using them!

Leopard Print!

I used to think leopard print was a bit tacky but just recently I’ve been really into all types of animal print. I even have giraffe print sunglasses!

So, looking at a few pictures of leopard print I wondered exactly how hard it could be to create this look in a nail art. It turned out to be one of the easiest looks ever! (: And, like always I have only used a hair grip. I may one day invest in some nail art pens! Ha! (:

I chose mint green just because it looks good with my hair. Vain, I know, but I love the colour. Okay, so once the base coat was dry I made splodges using the hair grip in a goldy colour. And then just went around the edges with black, leaving little gaps here and there. You really need a top coat with this as it looks a bit bumpy without.

Very simple, but oh so cute!
