In general, I don’t wear prints. I’m basic in that way. Solids, especially black, make up my wardrobe. However, I make an exception for leopard print. It’s essentially a neutral. So, when I spotted these Superga slip-ons, I couldn’t resist. Then, my Deborah Lippmann Painted Desert samples arrived, and I couldn’t help but notice how well Terra Nova and Desert Moon matched my new sneaks. And so today’s Leopard Nail Art design was born.
To get the look, use Deborah Lippmann Desert Moon (green-ish grey) and Terra Nova (dark camel) and a pigmented black creme (I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Black Out). The only tool needed is a double-ended dotting tool.
Apply two coats of Desert Moon as your base. Use the larger end of the dotting tool to create splotches with Terra Nova.
Next, dip the smaller end of the tool into Black Out and lightly drag uneven lines around the outside of the splotches. Don’t completely outline them, and throw in a few black splotches for good measure.
