Spunk up your style with this simple Charcoal Cheetah design created by Megan Anderson (Cosmetology Student at our beauty school in Fort Dodge).

Items Needed:

  • Base Coat
  • Top Coat
  • Charcoal Nail Polish
  • Black Nail Polish
  • Silver Nail Polish
  • Detailing Brush

Step 1: Begin by applying a base coat to clean nails. For this tutorial Megan used a CND Base Coat.

Step 2: Apply a charcoal color to all the nails except your ring finger. Megan used CND Vinylux Asphalt.

Step 3: Next, apply a silver polish to your ring finger. The color used here was CND Vinylux Silver Chrome.

Step 4: To make the cheetah print, apply “C-shape” designs with a small detailing brush using your favorite polish. Megan chose a black polish with bits of glitter.

Step 5: Now you are ready to fill in any bares spots with additional black dots.

Step 6: Finish the design with a top coat. Megan used CND Vinylux Top Coat.
