It also makes you feel powerful. Leopard print has been the print of choice for decades. The nail designs incorporating leopard print are not limited to black dots, either.
For example, a popular option is to paint a light to medium pink as the base coat of your nails.
Then the leopard’s spots are painted over the top of that. You get the leopard effect with a very feminine backdrop.
A similar approach is to paint the leopard skin pattern first, and then decorate each nail with a tropical pink flower in a corner of each nail.
Leopard faces are another popular nail design. Each nail receives a base color that won’t clash with the leopard print. Then the actual faces of leopards are painted over the tops of the base color.
Using a black nail polish pen to give the faces outlines and details really brings the faces of the leopards forward. Giving the leopards bright emerald green eyes makes this nail design very striking.
Another popular design is to paint nails with the leopard print all over, and then use a stencil that creates a black cat shadow on each nail.
The result is the appearance of hinting at the black shadow cat as a leopard because of the leopard print behind it on your nails. Pre-printed press and seal nails may also carry a similar design if you do not want to sit for an hour or more to have your nails painted this way.
For cat lovers and admirers of large cats, this is one design that is pursued intensely.
