Manicure of the Month: My Owlsome Fall Nails

20131128-105911.jpg

Owls are literally everywhere in my home that it was just a matter of time before they appeared on my nails. I am excited to share my most recent attempt at nail art. I have tried this pattern before and failed miserably, but I am pretty pleased with this outcome. I think its the color combination that has ultimately won me over. I don’t have a tutorial for you today, I am hoping I can begin to feel more confident with my nail skills soon so I can start to share that side of my DIY love with y’all.

My favorite fall time color finally made an appearance as the base color for this manicure. I used a lot of different colors to create the owl, including “La Moss” by Butter London. I also chose an opaque gold as the accent color, black and white for the eyes, and orange for the beak. I also used both a small and large dotting tool to create the designs.

I was inspired by a lot of different videos I found on YouTube and created my own little variation. I encourage you to check some others out though, I am constantly amazed by others creativity.
