Animal Print Swirls

I love animal print nail art! It was one of the first nail art designs I ever did, and still is one of my favorites. There are so many ways to change it up, like I did here adding a psychedelic swirl background!

For my pointer finger, I started off with a white background and used a watercolor technique to dab on multiple colors. I painted various dots, and used black polish for the leopard print!

As for the rest of the fingers, I hand painted swirls and added some more abstract leopard spots. I’ve been loving these spots more as they’re so simple to do and look more “realistic”. No way you can mess them up 🙂

What I Used:
-Floss Gloss Wet
-Floss Gloss Lean
-Deborah Lippmann Tip Toe Through the Tulips
-Marc Jacobs Lux
