Leopard Print Manicure

If you're anything like me, you are a fan of leopard print... clothes, shoes, bulletin board border for your classroom (it's true: I also have zebra, tiger, and giraffe)!

I saw this lovely pin on Pinterest and decided to recreate my own. However, I nixed the black nail/leopard print pattern (an AB pattern for all my teachers out there) and just did leopard print on my ring finger (much like my glittery nail manicure).

Pretty? I think so too. All I did was paint every nail a neutral color. Next, I used a toothpick to put blots of black on my ring finger (gotta love those leopard spots that are not symmetrical or perfect!). Then I used the other side of the toothpick to take out the centers of a couple of black blots- just to give it more texture/appearance of an actual leopard spot.

Happy Monday! Only 20 more school days for this teacher! However, 1 day is a workday, 1 day we get out at noon (which the kids are doing a marathon that day), 1 day is "field day" which at our school means water day, 1 day is a class picnic... So yeah, really like 16 instructional days... and 3 of those days will be clean up/pack up/organize... so like 13. YAY!
