Top 15 Neutral Leopard Print Nails Of 2020

Updated: Apr 28, 2021

Animal print may come and go, but leopard print is here to stay. I've never met a person who didn't like it. Might seem intimidating, but when done right leopard print is the classiest and most expensive looking print out there. It looks pretty in all colours, but my personal favourite is nudes and neutrals in matte variants because it makes it extremely wearable and very chic. So without much further ado, let's get into the top 10 best neutral leopard print nails! Scroll till the end to know how to do them.


Starting off with this gorgeous design where the print is paired with a #coffee brown shade (so apt) and #negative space so that the print isn't overpowering.


In this design, the #leopard print is an accent to offset the gorgeous matte black to add a punch and makes for a very sexy look.


Deviating from the last design, this one is very paired back using a cool neutral #taupe shade with creams to make this classy leopard print.


Similar to the last one, here is a variant with a warmer taupe paired with white on shorter nails to give you more sizing options.


Absolutely love the styling on this one! Warm brown glitter paired with white makes for a very #festive yet subtle design.


Here, we hare #warm rust orange on short nails. The rust works with the size and works on various skin tones.


This one is perfect for fall and the festive season using shades of cream and #glitter.


French tips with a twist! Here a classic #french tip is accentuated with patches of leopard print to elevate the look and make it more fitting for an Instagram baddie.


Maybe you don't like mixing and matching colours, well, then this one's for you. This monochromatic look uses a #matte brown with black fine leopard print without emphasizing the rosettes.


Here we have wilder version of the print toned down with a matte pinky #beige to still keep the print subtle and wearable on the daily.


Here's one for the shorties! Even of you don't have much real estate, you can still rock leopard print by pairing the print with a light base and some glitter to make it pop in what little space you do have.


Print mixing!? Yes! #Print mixing was a big trend last season and continues to be one. You can mix prints as long as they are in the same colours.


Here we a have a very cute and subtle #white leopard print design that will look beautiful with white and lighter outfits.


Bold prints on #nude bases look beautiful when mattified with a matte top coat.


Neutrals not really your thing? Then add a touch of #mauve to add some colour to this gorgeous print. This look is my personal favourite.


What you'll need:

Neutral base colour nail paint, leopard print colour nail paint, black nail paint/ acrylic paint, bobby pins/ dotting tools and a matte top coat.

What to do:

  • Paint your nails with a neutral base colour of choice. Let dry completely.

  • Take your second neutral colour for the rosettes of the leopard print and pour some out on a flat surface.

  • Now taking a bobby pin, dip it's rounded edge in the paint and draw random circles of varying sizes (as shown above). Don't overdo them because we will be adding more stuff later on. Let dry completely.

  • Now taking a clean bobby pin, dip it into the black nail paint (acrylic paint works better because it is thinner and has a longer dry time so doesn't get tacky). Draw the lines of the rosettes around the dots. Add small black dots to fill up any large gaps. Let dry completely.

  • You can skip the dots and just draw the black lines to have a simpler print as seen in image 9.

  • You can also use a toothpick or finer dotting tool to draw smaller more compact leopard print like seen in image 8.

  • Top with a matte top coat to protect and finish your gorgeous manicure.

That's it folks!
