Little owl

I got some positive comments on my black cat design that I did for Halloween, so I thought why not to try and paint some other cute animals and birds :) Today I’d love to show you a little owl freehand nail design:

Nails with an owl and branches

For the owl nail art I did a striped background in muted vintage colors. First, I painted my nails with a mint Golden Rose nail polish (3 coats), and then I mixed brown and white acrylic paints for the beige stripes. The owl is painted with the same brown and white that I was mixing in different proportions, and for the owl’s eyes I used a little bit of black. The branches are done with the pure brown. One coat of a clear top sealed the vintage nail design :)

  13. Sweet, sweet, sweet!! *-* I’d try to copy you, but that’s impossible lol. I’ve been toying with an owl manicure, but I’m missing on how to make the main character: the owl! lool Kisses Mary :)


  14. Как здорово! Обалденный маникюр! А у меня безобразно трясутся руки когда пытаюсь рисовать на ногтях, это практически ювелирная работа!
