Owl Nail Tutorial
I was on Pinterest the other night and saw a tote that someone had made to look like an owl. I immediately was inspired for my next tutorial. Again, I'll make it simple. ;)
You will need the following colors in nail polish: green, brown, pink, white, and black. You can use nail art pens for some or even all of this if it's easier for you. You may choose to use different colors than I used as well.
First I painted my nails green. I had to do three different coats because the green I chose was so light.
After the green polish was dry I took my brown nail polish and drew the wings on the side. If you need to put the polish on some paper first and then take a toothpick to draw in the wings do so. It wasn't hard to just paint the wings on with the brush. I did use a toothpick for the beak. Later I decided I wanted the beak in black as you can see in my main photo.
Next I took my white nail art pen and drew the big owl eyes. It's important to make sure you don't press too hard with the pen because you might smudge your green polish. Though the green polish seems dry...it can still be bumped in the first half hour and messed up.
I then took my black polish and put spots in the middle of the big white eyes for the pupils. I drew in a bigger beak over the old brown one and then drew the feet. The last thing I did was put my pink spots onto the wings. You can do the pink spots in the pattern that I did or you can create your own.
That's it! Isn't the little owl so cute? Your family and friends will love your creative nail art. Thanks again for looking at this fun nail polish tutorial. Keep coming back for more fun ideas and beauty tricks.
