Valentine's Day Leopard Heart Tutorial!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!

Just wanted to share a really fun and cute nail tutorial for this special day. Whether you have a Valentine or not it's just fun to have cute nails!!

So what you will need for this super cute nail art is some sort of dotting tool. If you don't have a dotting tool you can use a toothpick or break a Qtip in half and use the end that does not have the cotton on in. You will need one for a tan or light pink color and for the black color. If you are wanting to purchase dotting tools I found some on ebay for about $5 and you get 5 different size tools if you like doing nail art it could be worth the investment.

First thing is to paint your base color. I choose Eureka from the Sephora Formula X. It's such a beautiful pink color!


After you let that base dry a little. It doesn't have to be completely dry but dry enough that when you place another color on top they don't blend together or leave indentations in your base!

So next is take a dotting tool and dip it into either a light pink or light tan. I choose 'Coney Island Cotton Candy' from OPI. You are going to use your dotting tool to make a heart. Just dip into the polish and make a V. You should get something like this...

Let these little hearts dry while you work on your other hand. Now you are ready to add your black spots. Be creative with this step. I just went around the tops to accentuate the heart shape and then added a couple of blobs next to the hearts so that it looked like real leopard spots!!
Don't forget your favorite top coat and you are ready to have your leopard valentine's day nails!!
