DIY Leopard Nails

I decided to add a video tutorial to my original post from almost a year ago since I got a bunch of inquires on how to do this nail art. Share your photos of how yours turned out by posting on Instagram and tagging @likehearted!

I’m a sucker for anything leopard hence the diy nail art.

My winning combo for any manicure is Essie First Base Base Coat, Essie or OPI nail polish and Seche Vite Top Coat.

For this look I used OPI nail polish in San Tan-Tonio as the base color and made the leopard spots with Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Black.

Tip: Make sure each layer of polish is completely dry before adding the next layer. Especially after the you paint the spots, make sure they are completely dry before adding the top coat.

Dating A Royal

It’s happens every couple of months, I get obsessed with a particular color and want to incorporate it into everything from my wardrobe to my home decor. Right now I can’t get enough of Cobalt Blue (probably influenced from the high I still have from the royal wedding and that my sister is studying abroad this summer in Greece). For a few weeks I have been searching for a blue dress within budget, yet to find one but Reese Witherspoon and Eva Mendes (both in Stella McCartney) and Emma Roberts (in Michael Kors) make stunning appearances in theirs. I was able to get a quick fix when I got a pedicure this weekend and found the OPI color Dating A Royal (immediately ran to the beauty supply store afterwards to make sure I had the color for home). While on my search for a dress, accessories are acting as a quick fix. I picked up the shoes below from H&M for only $34.95!
