First Nail Art NOTD - Bright Black Sparkle Leopard Print Nails ♥

Ok so i have recently had a big obsession with nail may have noticed by the huge influx of NOTD post's haha.

I have mentioned it before but i am currently off work which has meant i can wear lots of different bright and bold nail polish colours which has now sparked an interest in nail art.

I have always been interested in nail art but never thought id be any good at it so seeing as i have lots of time on my hands over the next few weeks i am going to practise practise practise and share my results with you..sound good?

I thought the easiest way for me to start would be a leopard print design.

So i went with a black sparkled multi-coloured design.

Now i am by no means a pro and i am aware this isn't great but i think for my first time i didn't too bad so i am looking forward to trying some other designs.

I used Orly Lemonade as the base coat and all over my nails..

I then used..

Revlon Plum Seduction & Lilac Pastelle
Barry M Spring Green & Pure Turquoise
China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy

For the multi coloured spots


Rimmel Black Pearl to outline the dots. Black Pearl is a sparkly black so i thought it was a nice way to add something different.

I thought this look was also a great way to showcase Yellow Nails which are bang on trend at the moment.

I take lots of inspiration for nail art from We Heart It but also from Leanne's Blog..her nail art designs are amazing and pretty special so definitely check her blog out :)

So do you like my first nail art design?
