DIY: Animal Nails

Today is the third + final installment in a fun series of nail art with Stylesip!  Today’s nails are inspired by this leopard top.  I decided to go for a subtler take on the animal print trend… starting with with a nude base and create a leopard print pattern using deep shades of aubergine and plum.  The result is surprisingly wearable…  and even a little bit elegant!  Don’t forget…. Stylesip has launched an instagram contest where you can submit your own nail art inspired by the clothing – be sure to head to their Facebook page for more details… there are some pretty great prizes!

See what I mean by easy and wearable?  I think it’s the nude base.

Materials:  Deborah Lippmann Naked // Zoya Anja // Zoya Petra

Sally Hansen Silver Nail Art Pen // Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat // Kebab Sticks

The clear top coat is extra important as it seals in the nail art pen, which is water-based.

Disclosure:  This project is brought to you by Stylesip.

    I’ve always wanted to do the leopard, but I’m not sure my hands are steady enough. At least not before a glass of wine LOL
