I am a big fan of wild nail art designs or lets say animal prints and always seek to find new ideas on how to incorporate them on to nails.

In nature, may be zebras and leopards cannot stay together as friends but after all your nails are your canvas, so let your imagination run wild and let us create a story.

The backdrop: So once upon a time, gold was dug out of ground and both these creatures, the zebras and the leopards, started to guard it and keep it off the human’s clutches. Hence these two species of creatures came to stay together.

Animal Print Nail Art Tutorial

So today I will show you a duos wild animal nail art depicting this special story.

Things You Need:

  • A base coat
  • White acrylic paint
  • Muddy yellow acrylic paint
  • A black acrylic paint (or striper)
  • A brown acrylic paint
  • Cotton bud and polish remover
  • Golden nail art foil or golden striper or golden glitter polish
  • A Black Striper
  • A toothpick
  • A nail art brush
  • A transparent good quality top coat

Let’s get started with this wild nails design

Step 1:

Use a nice layer of base coat on your nails to prevent nails from harmful effects of acrylic paint. Paint up your nails with two colours in the way that I have used them.

Step 2:

With the help of your striper, give some black stripes on the white portion to make the zebra print. You can use your nail polish and nail art brush too for this one or nail art brush and black acrylic colour too.

Step 3:

Now complete the leopard part by giving some uneven dots with the blunt end of the toothpick or you can also use your dotting tool. I have used brown acrylic colour for this. You can use brown nail polish too.

Step 4:

Border the leopard dots with unjoined crescents to complete the leopard print. I have used black acrylic colour for this. You can use your nail polish too.

Now at the demarcations, use a fine lining of top coat. Immediately take bits of golden foil and stick them on this lining with the help of the pointed end of the toothpick. If you are using a golden striper, then you can directly use the striper to make demarcation lines. If on the other hand you are using golden glitters, then on again you need to use top coat on to these demarcations and pat golden glitter over these.

Step 5:

Now clean up traces of paint on edges with the toothpick and polish remover. Apply a thick layer of top coat and rest your hands, if possible near a fan or air conditioners air flow so that it gets dried to perfection. If needed use another layer. This should last quite good for about a week with a top coat application every 2 days.

Step 6:

So here is your wild wild nails.This is how your nails should look like. Using golden glitters, the look will be a bit different; nevertheless it will still be ravishing. Try it out and make others envy your sexy nails.
