We saw mixed prints all over the 2013 runways. Mixing not only different patterns, but different color combinations gives a fresh take on spring while staying on trend. Try doing a leopard print with stripes and polka dots in analogous colors for a fun and fashionable mani.

Supplies:

  • Essie's Haute as Hello
  • Essie's Wicked
  • Essie's Sand Tropez
  • Small paint brush
  • Straight pin
  • Kiss Nail Dress stickers in leopard

Instructions:

Apply a strip of the leopard sticker vertically on the pink nail. Paint a line on one side of that strip in maroon. Also with the small paint brush, paint three horizontal stripes on the middle finger. Using the flat top of the straight pin, dab dots of tan on the maroon pinkie nail and maroon dots on the tan thumb nail.
