So we all know how much I love a good leopard print manicure (a loooot!), but I decided to try something different and give myself a tiger print manicure…

Now this is my first attempt, so be nice! I think that some of the nails look better than others, so I am going to be practising the Tiger print manicure to perfect it, because I love it!

Recently I’ve been raving about the Sally Hansen nail art pen and how easy it is to use, but I realised as soon as I started doing the tiger print mani, the Sally Hansen nail art pen (with a felt-tip pen like nib) would never work for either tiger print or leopard print manicure. You need the brush of a traditional nail art pen to get the effect for both, so I used my trusty WAH nails Models Own nail art pen in black – lovely!

The base of the manicure is Miki bright pink nail polish and as I mentioned above the stripes are painted on using the fabulous Models Own and Wah nails nail art pen in black.
