Dalmatian Nails





Dalmatian Print is all over the catwalks at Topshop's LFW Show, all the models came complete with a Dalmatian manicure and a little black nose. Although I don't think I'll be wearing the new trend clothes-wise, I do like wearing this print on my nails!

Yet another excuse to try out a new nail design and I love how this turned out. I used Rimmel's French Tip Polish in White and a black nail art pen (using the thin long brush to create little patches)
The trick I found is to brush on the polish very carefully rather than dotting or dabbing. You're creating blobby 'brush strokes' that mimic the patches in the dog's fur. The patches don't have to be neat and tidy, in fact the more thrown together the more natural they look!

If you can't be bothered to faff around with your own nail art, you can buy Dalmatian Nail Wraps from Topshop Unique for £7.00

What do you guys think? Is Dalmatian Print something you're going to be trying out or avoiding?

  2. I think nail art is a great way of ewear trends you're a bit too scared to fully embrace clothes wise! I'm also unsure about dalmation print, so I might just get painting!

  9. I love this trend! I find the Topshop nail wraps too difficult to use, do you still have to use hair dryer heat? I think I'll stick to DIY with nail art like you.
