Happy Monday! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I know I did!
Every second person seem to be loving owls at the moment. I am not a huge lover of owls but when I saw some owl inspired nail art I thought it was super cute and knew I had to recreate it. This is what I came up with.
As you can imagine I used a ton of colours for this so I will show you all the colours individually after I’ve signed off. I started with a base colour of Zoya – Cho. Once that was completely dry I used those ring reinforcement stickers to create my half moons. I did each finger and pulled off the sticker as soon as I painted the nail. Then I went in with the lighter shade and freehanded the bottom shape. It was quite easy to do it with the bottle brush as it was just a few strokes. I used a small dotting tool with orange polish to do the beak and a bigger dotting tool to do the eyes and the dots on the ‘body’. Here are the colours I used:
- Dark purple – Sinful Colors – Amethyst
- Light purple – Essence – Hello Marshmallow
- Dark yellow – Sinful Colors – Pull Over
- Light yellow – Tip Top – Lemon Fuel
- Dark pink – Sinful Colors – Daredevil
- Ligh pink – Essence – Free Hugs
- Dark blue – Sinful Colors – Why Not?
- Light blue – Tip Top – Beach Babe
- Dark green – Catrice – I’m not a greenager
- Light green – Essence – Upper Green Side
- Orange – Essence – Flashy Pumpkin
I really liked how this came out. I think it looks so cute. I can imagine this will look good in one colour family or even in a brown / nude colour scheme. So many possibilities. In other words, you don’t need a ton of colours in a dark and light shade to do this. It is also so much easier than it looks! Why don’t you give it a try?
What do you think of these cute little owls? Are you going to give them a try? Please let me know if you do. You can share it with me on twitter, on facebook or on instagram (you can find links to me on the sidebar). I would love to see your recreations.
Thanks for reading!
