NOTD Leopard

I did this for New Year and I figured I’d share the nail art with you as it’s incredibly simple and quick so anyone can do it.
I applied a coat of Estee lauder ‘Frozen Fantasy’ (just because it’s one of the only brown polishes I own) and then put a light layer of Barry M’s ‘Gold’. Obviously you can make the background as glittery as you like – I know a few people who don’t normally wear polish wanted something a little more muted and have done a similar look with just a plain brown background!
Then I just used my dotting tool to ‘dot’ on the leopard print :)
Simples!
P.S What do you think of the Blog's new look?

Love your nails and I adore that Barry M gold too. Only downside is that glittery nail varnish is a pain to get off!
