How to Rock the Leopard Print Tip Nails Trend Like a Fashionista

Leopard print tip nails have become a major trend in the nail art industry and for good reason. The bold, fierce and edgy look they provide is just what any fashion-forward individual needs to stand out in a crowded room. If you're wondering how to rock this trend like a fashionista, we've got you covered. Here’s a list of tips and tricks to ensure you slay the leopard print nail trend.

1. Start with A Clean Slate

Before getting started on the nail art, make sure your nails are clean and dry. Remove any other polish with a non-acetone remover, then using a nail buffer to make the tips of your nails smooth.

2. Choose Your Base Color

Next on the list is picking the right base color to complement the leopard print. Red, black, nude or white are excellent options. Remember that the base color of your nails should coordinate with the color of your leopard print design. Whether you go for a classic look or a bold and vibrant edge, it's all up to you.

3. Practice Makes Perfect

The leopard print is best achieved with a thin brush. Practice your freehand design on a piece of paper before applying it to your nails. This will help you perfect the design before putting it on your nails.

4. Stick to The Right Tools

Utilize the proper tools when making the leopard print tip design. Use a thin brush for the black outlines; preferably #000 or #00. A dotting tool for the spots and possibly a small brush for filling in the black designs. With these tools, the leopard print designs come out neater and spot on.

5. Keep It Simple, Yet Chic

Don’t overcrowd your nails with other rhinestones, glitter, or pearls. Stick with the leopard print design and your base color. This way, the leopard print will get all the attention it deserves, and your look will remain chic and stylish.

6. Finish Off with A Top Coat

Applying the topcoat ensures the leopard print tip design stays longer. Use a topcoat like OPI Top Coat or Seche Vite to seal your leopard print design in. It gives them the perfect shine and that glossy finish to make them stand out.

Leopard print tip nails may seem intimidating at first, but once you get the hang of it, this trend can spice up your look altogether.
