5 Ways To Add Some Glitter To Your Cheetah Print

Nothing says fierce quite like a cheetah print does. It's a wild yet classy trend that has been loved for decades and will continue to be for decades more. When everyone seems to be sporting this timeless look, how do you make it different to set yourself apart? Glitter. Make your standout animal print stand out even more with either a touch or a mountain of sparkle!  

This chic and fashion forward mani has a beautifully balanced combo of polka dots and cheetah print. With everything happening in this look, the cheetah print has more presence because of the glitter it sits on. Without the glitter it would just blend in with every other nail. That would be boring, wouldn't it?

So how do you create a stunning cheetah print glitter nail like this? It's pretty simple actually:

  • Apply bonding formula to your nail.
  • Sprinkle a liberal amount of glitter on your nail over a piece of card stock.
  • Apply Sealing formula and allow to dry for 3-5 minutes.
  • Apply second coat of Sealing Formula and allow to dry.
  • Use the nail polish of your choice to paint your cheetah print on your glitter nail.

Now how about a cheetah print glitter eye? This is definitely the type of eye makeup look that will turn some heads! For this DIY make sure you use COSMETIC glitter! We can't stress that enough! Nail glitter and especially craft glitter will irritate you skin. Trust us, you're going to want cosmetic glitter.
  • Apply your eyeliner.
  • Apply color of eye shadow you like. We recommend using a creme based eye shadow so you can apply your glitter to the shadow. Applying your glitter directly to your skin will cause irritation.
  • Apply glitter.
  • Use your eyeliner to draw your cheetah print.

Cheetah print glitter shoes! Is there anything more desirable on this planet?! We don't think so! This one is pretty easy to make, all you need is a pair of cheetah print shoes, mod podge, tape, and glitter! Use any color of glitter you like. The gold glitter used with these shoes is a great match!
  • Tape off section of shoes you want to glitter.
  • Brush on even coat of mod podge.
  • Apply glitter.
  • Allow to dry.
  • Take off tape.

So basically you can add glitter to just about anything with a little bit of mod podge :). Remember the key is to use an even coat for the right texture and look. Who doesn't want a glitter cheetah print glass to go with dinner?

More proof that mod podge and glitter reign supreme:
