On Nnenna’s Nails #17: Lady Leopard

Girly Pink Leopard Print Nails

 Pink*Zoya Madison // Gold*Nails Inc. Lanesborough Place // Black*(old)

First off, I have to tell you guys that this week’s manicure was inspired directly by this post on Santina’s blog.  Santina always posts awesome manicures and I’d been wanting to trying the leopard print look for a while, so I decided to just go for it.  It was not as hard as I feared it would be, but definitely requires that you have some time and patience.  I think it turned out fairly well for my first attempt and I do really love the colors that I chose to put together.  For my next try, I would attempt to add a few more spots so that they don’t look quite so spaced out.

Tell me: Would you try out leopard print on your nails?

Also, just wanted to let you guys know that I’m currently accepting sign-ups for the Correspondence Club for July!  If you want to participate in July, please send me your information by midnight Saturday (June 30th at 11:59pm EST).

    • Thanks so much for your comment and for following Candace! It does take a bit of patience to do these, but you should totally give them a try! :)

  • i think it would look great on my left hand because Im a righty but i dont know how my other hand would look :/ maybe with more practice doing my nails period I would be brave enough to try it!

    • Oh, same- I always photograph my left hand when I do designs like this because it looks better! Yes, I definitely think you could practice and then give it a try when you feel up to it :)

    So cute! Love your choice of gold. I’ve been wanting to do leopard as matte black with gloss black spots but I have yet to conjure up the patience for that. Good for you for doing so, though! Looks beautiful :) You are gifted with such lovely nail beds!


    • Thank you Melanie! Ooo, I bet matte black/gloss black would look so cool- I would love to see if you give it a try :)
