Animal print has continued to rule the runways as of late, and whether or not it was Snooki who brought the style back, we're sure glad it's here to stay. Glamour magazine reports the models at the Tracy Reese fashion show during Fashion Week were gorgeous in leopard-inspired outfits and nails.
Even though the clothing won't be out for quite some time, you can still achieve the nail trend in a few easy steps. For leopard nails you'll need a striper brush, a good base coat, dark gray professional nail polish, white nail polish like CND Nail Colour - Whites in Brilliant White, black nail polish, silver nail polish, an assortment of fun colors CND Nail Colour - Bolds in Anchor Blue and Green Scene and a top coat product.
When you have all of the colors, start by applying the base coat followed by the dark gray hue. When the layer is completely dry, dab on the fun hues in blobs to act as leopard "spots."
After you've applied a few blobs on each nail, use the brush to paint the outline of each with the black nail polish, then let the nails dry.
When the spots look leopard-like, apply a topcoat for a fabulous and show stopping finish.
