STEP BY STEP

Giraffe print Take a walk on the wild side with Anelda Fouche’s fun, ‘animalistic’ nail art design

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 6

Apply a base layer and two coats of a nude colour (I used Lucianna from Evo gel), curing after each layer.

Repeat steps 2 and 3, creating small and big spots as you go. (If you are worried that the gel will run, cure between every few spots before continuing.)

Using a dark brown colour (I used Courtney from Evo gel), create a shape you are familiar with, like a square or circle. Do not cure.

Continue with your giraffe spots until you have filled the nail. Cure.

Use a nail art brush to manipulate the shape into a giraffe spot – rounding and lengthening corners.

Apply a second layer of the dark brown colour to the spots. Cure.

Step 7

Apply a layer of top coat (I used Suede Matte Top Coat from Evo gel) and cure. Finish the design with glitter and dark brown nails to complement the giraffe print.
