Ombre leopard print nails

Rimmel - Professional Finish in Peppermint | Models Own - Lilac Dream

I've been meaning to do this nail art for AGES - there was a wee flurry of bloggers doing it a while ago and I have been meaning to jump on the bandwagon.

It's super simple. You just paint the base colour (I used my favourite turquoisey shade) then take a piece of sponge and lightly dab on the second colour (I used purple). The gradient on mine looks a bit rubbish if you look too closely, but I think it does the job well enough!

Dainty Dresses has a good tip on using clear polish to make a softer gradient, so I think I will try that next time!


  1. Meep! Really really cute nails :) I love them.

  2. Love these! I keep meaning to try ombre nails but haven't gotten round to it yet. Love this colour combo!

    1. Thanks! Yeah - it was quite addictive to do.. I keep going back to ombre nails now x
