Classy Nude Leopard Print Inspired by Reinovate

I have another inspired nail art look to show you today, this time from the incredibly talented Reinovate. Her abstract leopard print manicure looked so beautiful and classic, I just had to copycat it!


I started off with a base of OPI You're So Vain-illa (I love using this for nail art!) and once that was dry, I used a toothpick and black acrylic paint to dot on the leopard print up the side of my nails. It's almost like a sideways French manicure, isn't it?! I topped everything off with top coat, of course.


I can't get over how elegant this looks. Nude nails and leopard print both feel really classy to me, so pairing them together just feels right! I also love this style of thin leopard print outlines, rather than the big chunky spots I used to make.


And can we talk about how cool this maniure looks from the side?!


The OPI is from HB Beauty Bar. It's such a pretty beige color with a great formula - if you don't own it, you need it!

I am really pleased with this manicure and I just love the design that Rei came up with. You can follow her blog and Instagram to see all of her pretty nail designs! (Fun fact: Rei is the one who I first saw doing the famous "blurred polish bottle in the background" photo that I do all the time now!)

Thanks for stopping by!
