OPI Nordic Collection Leopard Print Nail Art

I was recently reading a post on Work/Play/Polish where Leslie talked about how she overdid leopard print nail art at the beginning of her blogging career, and hasn't done it very much recently because of that. I have to agree with her sentiments. It's definitely one of the nail art styles that I've done most over the years, and I tend to shy away from it these days. Of course, there are exceptions, like today's post!

My last leopard print used a nail art brush to paint tiny leopard markings, but for this look I went back to the classic dotting tool technique.

I used:
OPI Going My Way or Norway?
OPI My Dogsled is a Hybrid
OPI Skating On Thin Ice-land

I really liked using Skating On Thin Ice-land for the darkest shade in this nail art. At times, it would catch the light and the burgundy tone would totally shine. It was purty.

Is there a nail art style that you've burned out on in the past?


  1. This looks great! I totally agree that when you do a certain nail art design a lot in the beginning, you tend not to it as much later on.

  2. These are gorgeous! I love these colours together a lot!

  3. Yea I agree with what your saying, this mani is awsome!

  4. Love that color combo!

  5. Sarah, accent nail for sure gets overused, but I still do it! It doesn't add any time to the manicure but dresses things up a bit. I think your leopard prints are the best of the best out there!

  6. Cute mix of colors! I'm waiting on my first set of dotting tools to come in so I can attempt some leopard spots of my own :)

  7. Every time I see designs featuring OPI's Nordic Collection, I love it more and more! Beautiful design!
