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. ✨
5. Pink base & gold chrome powder 🌟
Take that traditional cheetah print and enhance it with a pastel pink base and a gold outline. Simple, but effective.
6. Cut-out hearts & v tips 💖
These cheetah print nails definitely have an abstract vibe to them, and we’re totally vibing to this mish-mash of patterns.
7. Gold glitter
Gold glitter works hard, so you don’t have to. 💅
8. Random color combos 💛💚💜
Most people wouldn’t naturally pair neon green v tips with black and brown cheetah print — but that’s what makes this look so genius.
We love green nails. Take a look at 12 green nail designs we’re totally digging right now.
9. Pink cheetah print nails
Skip the pink base and go for the gold with full-on pink cheetah print.
10. Multi-colored cheetah print nails
If you can’t decide on a color, just use them all. If you don't want to switch up the cheetah print, you can switch up the base color instead.

Is there anything more random than cheetah print flame nails? Probably not. But we’re still feeling this design either way.
