Owl Manicure

Tuesday, June 8, 2010
Hi dear reader!

I wanted to do this design for Daph's nail art contest but the one I did wasn't great so I never sent it in. Now the contest is closed and I did a new owl mani yesterday.

Owls Nail Art Design Hoot

I used American Apparel - Mouse as my base colour. After that was dry I created the contours of the head and wings with OPI - Over the Taupe. I used a small paint brush for this.

After I created the contours I took a smaller paint brush and created the feathers using three brown colours: Diamond Cosmetics - Decadence, American Apparel - Mouse mixed with China Glaze - White Out and OPI - Over the Taupe mixed with China Glaze - Liquid Leather. I created the feathers by pulling the brush over the contours and base colour and tap a little.

The eyes are created with China Glaze's White Out and Liquid Leather. A dottingtool is very handy when it comes to creating nice dots. The beak is an orange striper.
