I was fresh out of ideas for the polish colors I had, and my sister offered her coffee color, so I couldn't resister cheetah print. I mean, who can, right?!

This mani is super easy and doesn't have to be perfect by any stretch. (Speaking of which, you'll have to excuse the polish on my skin...didn't quite get around to cleaning it up yet).

I started out with two coats of this Taupe color from Love & Beauty by Forever21. Not exactly high-quality stuff, but I like to change my nails often so I'm not too worried. Then I mixed the Taupe with a drop of "Bowery Black" by New York Color, and used a blunt yarn sewing needle to dabble on some different sized shapes. They don't by any means have to be perfect dots. I did a lot of double dots to make a longer oval shape, some big, some small. Then once the spots dried, I used the needle again and went around the edges with the Bowery Black, enclosing the darker taupe in black circles and parenthesis-like shapes.

Once it all dried, I went over it with a quick topcoat of Sally Hansen's "Clear'd for Takeoff"!

And voila! Adorable cheetah print :D Consider yourself Cheetah'fied!
