Nail Art: Owl Nails

Owl Nails Nail Art PicturesYou’ll remember that not long ago, I bought the brand new Bundle Monster image plate set. The two owl designs made it a must-have for me.

To make China Glaze Elephant Walk more my style, I turned them intoΒ Owl Nails with the help of Bundle Monster Image Plate BM-309.

After these cuties were on my nails, I fell in love with the manicure. And I appreciated the grey as the base colour.

I painted the tips of my nails black with China Glaze Liquid Leather so that the owls would have something to stand on.

If you look really closely at the cute owl on my middle finger, you’ll see that he’s a bit of a show-off. While all the others have their feet on the ground, he’s balancing himself on just one leg! πŸ˜‰ What an attention-seeker!

Hehe, I also like how the owls look like they’re either wearing monocles or they have shiners!

      Hey Erica!

      Glad you got a kick out of this manicure. Apparently that little owl also got ‘a kick’. πŸ˜‰ Oi…bad joke, but I couldn’t resist!

      Thank you! Hope that you enjoy the long weekend, too!

      Hey Jenn!

      Hehe, maybe I should’ve busted out my dotting tool to make the ‘chain’ for the monocles. That would be cute.

    Man I love owls and have nothing to show for it (no jewelry, no stamping plates, no cute little t-shirts πŸ™ maybe I should get the BMs ) they are so on trend for the past while, and cute as can be. Your mani just rocks!

      Hey Karen!

      YES, you should get these Bundle Monster image plates! πŸ™‚ There are so many unique designs and also some whimsical ones that makes it a great choice. There are lots of other designs to choose from, but I think this set is my favourite from Bundle Monster.

      Hey Frosso!

      Yup – they’re either gentlemen…or they got into a fist fight! πŸ˜›

      Looking back now, I think it would’ve been better to stamp the owls on first and then paint the black tips. In that order, you can choose to cover the legs or show them. Hehe, but then the owl on the middle finger wouldn’t be able to show off like that, now would he? πŸ˜‰
