Leopard Print Nail Art Inspired by Very Emily

Hello guys, hope you are having a nice weekend! I decided to recreate one of my favorite nail art looks from the incredible Very Emily today:

To achieve this look, I started with a base of Essie Urban Jungle on my outer two nails, China Glaze Petal to the Metal on my middle nail, and Cult DTLA on my ring finger. I used a striping brush to make the abstract leopard print and the heart.

While I like this pattern a lot, I feel like the outer nails definitely don't look like leopard print! I do love the combination of neon and neutral though, and I really love throwing black polish into the mix as well.

I think overall this was a really simple and cute manicure, so I'm pretty satisfied with it!

Here are the polishes I used. The Cult polish can be purchased here (use the code KELLI for 15% off), and the China Glaze and Essie polishes can be purchased here (use the code POLISHCHALLENGE for 15% off.)

I hope you enjoyed my little recreation from Very Emily. She actually recreated one of my old manis today too - you can see her post here. And if you don't already, you absolutely must follow her! Emily is not only a talented nail artist, but she does amazing swatches as well. 

What do you think of my simple skittle nail art?
