Denim Leopard (+ Video Tutorial)

Everyone loves leopard print, right? RIGHT!

All you guys really seemed to enjoy the neon leopard manicure that I posted on Sunday. I even had a few requests for a leopard tutorial. For those of you that requested, your wish is about to come true! Leopard prints are easy and striking, and I wanted to show you guys a video demo of how I do mine.


Let's watch the video tutorial. I think my video skills have improved since last time, but never fear! My voice overs are still as awkward as ever! (And don't forget to check out my channel!)




Once I had decided to do a blue themed variation on the leopard print, I started calling it a "denim leopard" in my head. It kinda stuck so I'm going with it!

As you probably heard in the video (I type bideo every time), this manicure was made using all China Glaze polishes. The base is Agent Lavender, which, despite supposedly being lavender, looks blue in this manicure -- even in person (I think it is the fact that it is up next to the dark blue). The center of the spots are Secret Peri-winkle, and the outside of the spots are First Mate.


The leopard print pattern is really versatile, in that you can do it in any combination of colors. Natural or psychedelic, leopard looks good under any circumstances.


I hope this video tutorial has encouraged some of you to give the leopard print manicure a try! With a little bit of practice and some patience, you will soon be a master of fierceness!

  24. How do you do your 'other' hand??? Mine always goes naff from lack of stability in my non writing hand :(

    1. Sometimes it just takes practice to develop a steadier hand. You can try resting your pinky on the table to provide a more stable position from which to draw.
