Animal print is a classic when it comes to clothing, however, it’s not just for our coats and accessories. Leopard print lips became a surprising beauty trend, plus the pattern also works well in manicures. There’s also no need to stop at leopard print. Zebra print, cheetah spots, tiger stripes and even cow spots all make good nail art ideas. And unlike some complicated nail art design, animal prints are straightforward to recreate.
