notd | naked leopard

Being as much in love with nail art as I am, it may come as a surprise that I've never done leopard print - especially as it seems as if it's one of the easier designs to do.
Left Hand
Right Hand

In truth, I don't think my left hand turned out as well as my right, I made the print too small and applyed the top coat too soon so everything smudged.
Now that I've tried it once, I can see how simple the print is to do. All you need to do is put a few blobs of brown on the nail, I chose to stick to one side but of course you can blob away all you like. Then outline the brown blobs in black and add a few black dots.
I used the Nails Inc Porchester Square nail polish that I got in a Latest In Beauty box, and I am extremely pleased with it. I love the colour, it's a mushroomy, very cool-toned greyish beige. I applied two coats, but it looked fine with only one coat, just a bit streaky - which is amazing for a nude nail polish!
