Pin It Do It Challenge - Leopard Nails

I've chosen another nail art inspiration for this week's Pinterest challenge.



My inspiration pin is below...

Source: loveit.com via Bex on Pinterest



I did it the same as shown above using the toothpicks but used more of a mink colour as the base and a metallic champagne for the spots.



I decided to paint the full nail rather than just the tips and to keep the pattern to just one nail.  Again, it was easier than I thought although I think I painted the metallic spots a little too close together so they were quite tight by the time I added the black.  A couple of areas did go a little smudgy but I'm pretty chuffed with the overall result!







If you have a pin that inspired a project you've actually had a go at, please do send it in or tweet it using the hashtag #PinItDoIt  Get those pins off the boards and into real life!  It's fun :)
