How to Make Leopard Cheetah Animal Print Designs on your Nails

Updated on February 4, 2013

Your nails can be more than just a plain color and animal print is always fun! Why not spice up your nails with some cute animal prints. Here are some steps to painting your nails with an animal print design.


1st you paint a base coat, either neon or brown or whatever fun color you'd like.

2nd you take a toothpick and lay dots of nail polish on your nails in a different color.

Last use black and go outline your dots with irregular U's and C's. You May also whisk the nail polish on when your outlining the dots giving your nails a more realist effect.


TRICK 1: Many companies sell "FINE TIP" Nail Polish "PENS". These pens are perfect for drawing details without being an artist!

TRICK #2: Nail Wraps

If you haven't tried a super simple nail wrap, you gotta check 'em out! A Typical Nail Wrap lasts7 days on nails and 8 weeks on the toes, with each at home nail wrapping treatment taking just 15 minutes to apply. Unlike nail polish they won’t chip or stain the nail and quicker to apply as no drying time required. Best of all, you can get Nail Wraps in everything from Leopard / Animal Prints to Metallics to Skulls and More!


Want to draw EVEN MORE attention to your nails? Instead of doing all of your nails, try the following:

1. Only do your Thumb Nails fancy and simply paint the rest of your nails a solid color that is one of the shades in your thumbnail Animal Print.

2. Do every other nail; start with the pinky nail on your right hand and make every other nail "fancy". Paint the in-between nails a solid color that matches one of the shades in your "fancy" nails.

3. REVERSE 'EM! Pink out two different styles of wraps and do every other nail in the reverse pattern.

4. FLIP THE SCRIPT!!! Do one hand's nails in Black -With -Blue- Leopard -Spots and do the other hand in BLUE - with -black - leopard -spots!
