Cheetah print nails are wonderful. But if we’re being completely honest with ourselves, animal print nails are wonderful in general. 🐄🐅🦓🦒

Cheetah print nails are super fun and can be pulled off in a lot of different ways — laid on top of some v tips, painted on in multi-colored neon, outlined in chrome, or topped with glitter (or all of the above at the same time).

We’ve laid out 18 of the cutest ways to pull off cheetah print nails. Take a look and save your favorite design for later. 😍

1. Just a little animal print 🐆

You don’t need a ton of cheetah print to pull off some epic animal print nails. All you need is a little glitter there and a little glitter here. 

2. Matte cheetah print nails

We love the nude and black color combo, but we love the matte top coat even more. 😻

3. Purple on purple cheetah print nails 💜

If you’re having trouble picking a color combo, multiple shades of the same color always looks great.

4. Abstract cheetah print 

A simple stroke of neon or pastel gel polish underneath animal print is a simple way to level up your design. ✨
