Leopard Print + Gradient Tutorial

When I did the 31 Day Challenge, I had someone ask me for a tutorial of this manicure. Here it is!

  1. Start by painting your nails yellow. I used China Glaze Happy Go Lucky. Let this dry completely before going on to the next step.
  2. Create the gradient using a makeup sponge. Paint the colors directly onto the makeup sponge next to each other in stripes (like this). I used China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, Zoya Arizona, and Julep Drew.
  3. Add purple leopard spots using a small striper brush. I used OPI Funky Dunky.
