Inspired by Fashion: Charlotte Olympia Day 2 - Leopard Print Nail Art

On to Day two of the series! This design is inspired by a pair of pump from Charlotte Olympia called "Dolly". Dolly encompasses all there is to love about being a girl: leopard print, high heel, with pretty blue accents! It's actually one of the more sedate shoe designs that Charlotte Olympia has on her website which should tell you a lot about her design aesthetic!

Tools used:

Dotting Tool

Small detailing brush

Medium Striping Brush

Polishes used:

Floss Gloss Dinge

(base color)

Floss Gloss Donatella

Pueen Black in Black

China Glaze Seaspray

KBShimmer Clearly on Top


I started with two coats of Dinge before moving on to my leopard spots. Next to polka dots, leopard print is probably one of the easiest nail art designs to do. I simply painted on random dots or spots and then used my dotting tool to create the black C and U shapes that make the leopard print. I then used my striping brush to apply Seaspray and create a french tip. I finished with a coat of Clearly on Top.

I love how simple and yet eye-catching this turned out. Just like the shoes!
