Cheetah Girl

I was inspired by March's Teen Vogue editorial to do a funky cheetah/leopard print on my nails ( I cant ever tell the difference lol).

I painted my nails first with OPI Gargantuan Green Grape - 2 coats and let completely dry. Then I put orange imperfect dots and let dry. After I took one of those new Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens in black and added more dots (you could use a sharpie too). Topped it all of in OPI Rapidry Top Coat :)

Cant wait to try the other ideas in the editorial! Stay Tuned ;)

question:

how do you keep your nail polish layers from gooping up? every time i put on more than a coat it peels right off by the time my top coat dries?

So cute! I've never actually painted my nails...I know, that's rather odd, but I want to now! Though perhaps I will start small :)

Wow, it looks really cool! I try to mix it up sometimes by doing my nails in different colors, but I've never done anything like this! Maybe I'll give it a try the next time I put on nailpolish! Thanks for the tip!
