DIY dalmatian print nails

Just call me Miss De Vil, because Cruella and I have something in common - we're both loving dalmatian print right now. Particularly with A/W 2011 featuring a lot of dalmations, from Topshop Unique to Sonia Rykiel.

So when I was flicking through my August edition of Vogue I was inspired to try out dalmatian print nails, a la Sophy Robson for the Topshop Unique A/W show. It's really easy, so if you'd like to have a go too, then here's what I used:

All you need is a white nail polish, black nail art pen and a top coat.

Apply the white nail polish. I had to apply four coats to get a really nice solid white base.

And then comes the fun part - put loads of different size blobs all over your nails! They look more realistic when they're all different sizes. If you don't have a nail art pen, then just just a black nail polish and splodge it around, trying to make circles.

Now, I have to admit, mine do look more like cow print or a speckled duck egg. But it's an acceptable effort for my first attempt.

So, will you be trying out dalmatian print nails? I predict that it's gonna be a big trend in Autumn/Winter!
