Leopard nails

I have been seeing a lot of people sporting the animal nails trend, so I thought id give it ago with my own version :]
Firstly I painted my nails with Barry M - Mushroom.
After it had fully dried, with a black gel pen I drew on my nails different funny looking 'C's', the gel pen will smudge if you just slightly touch it though :/
For the gold bits in between the 'C's' I used MUA gold glitter eye liner, from Superdrugs new 'everything is a £1.00' range, but you could used any glitter eye liner, also this will smudge but does dry fairly quickly.
Its a must to top coat your nails after otherwise the gel pen will just run off, I used GOSH - high shine top coat, but any will do though.
when painting on the top coat you will need to apply it very lightly, I put a big drop at the cuticle and brush it very lightly up.
Its such an easy design to create and looks amazing once finished.
