PS. this was also posted on my blog so if you need any more pics they are posted.
DIY Cheetah Nail Art Design

  • 3 Colors- a light, a medium and a dark shade. (I chose gold, brown and black for a traditional Cheetah look.) 
  • A toothpick
  • Base Coat
  • Top Coat

(In case you were wondering this is Love and Beauty Gold, China Glaze Unplugged and NYC Black)

 STEP 1: After applying a base coat, apply your lightest shade first. I normally do two coats.

STEP 2: Blotch, literally blotch various spots of your medium shade all over each nail. The more random the blotch, the better the end result will be!

STEP 3: With your toothpick, dab some black on the end and outline two sides of your spots. It is ok if every spot does not look perfect. Remember, a real cheetah doesn't have perfect spots! :)

 STEP 4: With the same toothpick, fill in the blank spaces with random specks like so.

STEP 5: Let your nails dry a bit then apply top coat and VIOLA! You have cheetah nails!

 Here are a few example of Cheetah nails I had did on a previous post.
