Black on Black Cheetah Nails

Black on Black Cheetah Nails

The completed Black on Black Nails.

Why we love them:

You may or may not be able to see the cheetah pattern in the picture but we love the textured look and having shiny detail that is the same colour as the matte background. This is a fun and cool twist if you usually wear black nails or if you just want to try a subtle cheetah pattern on your nails.

What you need:

  • Dotter Pen (buy it in a set here)
  • Black (we used Essie Licorice, buy it here)
  • Base Coat (we used Essie, base coat here)
  • Matte Top Coat (we used Nails Inc.Westminster Bridge, top coat here)

What to do:

  1. Start with clean, dry nails. Paint each nail with base coat.
  2. Paint all nails black. Two coats may be required.
  3. Apply the matte top coat to all nails.
  4. Once the nails are somewhat dry, using the dotter pen shape and create your cheetah pattern. 
  5. Top coat is not to be used with this nail art design otherwise the matte black background or the cheetah would be ruined whether you would use a matte or normal top coat, so just let dry!
