Snow Leopard & Glitter Gradient Nail Art

Hello lovely readers! I hope you're having a great day or evening. If you couldn't tell already, I have some glitter and animal print for you! I seriously can never get enough of either one and neither of them will ever go out of style. At least I hope they don't!

If you've never seen a photo of a snow leopard, please go Google them immediately. They are absolutely stunning and I wish I could see one in real life. 

Since I can't actually see one in real life, I decided the next best thing would be to channel their gorgeous colr and pattern into some nail art. Voila!

I used a couple different polishes for this design. For the white I used White On from the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear line. The grey I used on my thumb and pinky nails underneath the glitter is China Glaze Immortal. Immortal is also the same polish I used for the center of my leopard print. For the black on the outside of my leopard print I used Wet n Wild Black Creme. The glitter I used is China Glaze Polarized

I used a dotting tool to create the leopard print and for the glitter gradient I just used the polish brush. Nothing special.

I'm so happy with the way these turned out. Sometimes simple colors can make the most beautiful designs.
