TUTORIAL: Gradient animal print nail art

Today for you I have a tutorial of two things that are always in style - gradients and animal print. This is very easy to do and you can do it free hand or with stamps if you are lazy like me. Look below to see everything you need and a quick tutorial. 

For this mani you need 3 colors for the gradient. I used p2 High five, Watch me walking and Vollare.
For the animal spots I used Essence stamp me!black and MoYou London Time traveller Back to the 80's 02 stamping plate. You will also need a sponge to make the gradient and a dotting tool.

Step 1: Create any type of 3 colored gradient. But make sure the 1st and last colors are completely different or the later nail art wont be so noticeable.
Step 2: Make leopard spots. You can free hand draw them or stamp them the way I did. But make sure that there are a lot of dots that have a hollow part.
Step 3: Use the light polish and the dotting tool to fill out the dots on the dark part of the nail. Also venture out and make some dots on the part of the middle polish.
Step 4: Fill in the rest of the dots with the dark colored polish on the light base. Also fill in the other dots on the middle part of the nail. At the end don't forget a nice layer of top coat so it will look all smooth and finished since the dots can sometimes look a bit 3D.  

Here is a finished result. It is a simple and easy nail art that will never go out of style and will always impress the people around you.
