Firstly, prepare your nail as per your usual manicure with your first polish colour and wait until the polish is touch dry.
Step 1 - using your second polish colour, dab on small spots. Make sure you don't load your brush with too much polish as you want the spots to be flat - you also want them to be random shapes, not perfectly round! Here, I've made a stripe of small spots across the nail but you could cover the whole nail or just a part of it.
Step 2 - when your spots have dried, use your striper to create a line of colour on two opposite sides of the spots. Don't overload your brush, just use a tiny bit of colour to highlight the spots - your not outlining it, just creating that characteristic leopard dappling!
When your colour is dry, don't forget to top coat to protect your lovely leopard nail art!
