Using the medium brush and the gray polish, paint large leopard spots in various sizes and shapes. Look at a photo of leopard print for inspiration if needed. Let dry and then take the small brush with the silver polish and make accent paint strokes alongside each gray spot. Let dry and finish with a top coat.
