A Leopard and its Stripes? Zoya Cho, Kristi & Raven

Today I have another super simple design (can you see a trend here?) I knew the three colors I wanted to use before I even knew what the design was! I chose Zoya Raven and Cho (I love black and nude together) and Zoya Kristi as a red accent. Then it just evolved into two leopard print accent nails and three nails striped in various widths.

I started with two coats of Zoya Cho on all my nails. For the leopard print, I followed Chalkboard Nails' brilliantly easy tutorial (find it here). Anyone can do this. It is totally and seriously foolproof! I dotted blobs of the red Kristi and then dotted Raven around the perimeter of each.

Finally, I used striping tape to tape off each nail in varying widths. For the pinky and pointer, I painted in between every other line of striping tape with a small nail art brush to create the thicker lines. For the middle finger, I polished over the entire nail with Raven using the polish brush. I immediately removed the striping tape after painting each nail.

In person, this looks like it took hours. I can't stop looking at it. :)
