If you’re keen to try any of the above looks, keep in mind there are two ways of getting leopard print on your nails. The first and easiest method, just fake it by using wraps (design #11). You can always cut the shapes from your wraps to match your preferred look, ie. nail designs #7, #9 or #10. Second, hand painted using a brush or dotting tool. Refer to this snow leopard nail tutorial from our e-book.
