Hoot Goes the Owl

Owl nails!  I got inspired by a photo album/scrapbook my boyfriend and I are putting together.  There are owls everywhere!  They don't really have a significance to us but they're gosh darn cute =)

You will Need:

  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mint Sorbet
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On
  • Revlon in Chocolate Truffle
  • Jordana in Black
  • Top coat of your choice
  • Thin painbrush/dotting tool
 Hoot hoot!

1.  Paint on a colour for the body of your owl.  I chose Mint Sorbet.

2.  Make two larger white dots close to each other.  These will be the eyes.

3.  Outline the white in black with a thin paintbrush.

4.  I dotted the eyes in Chocolate Truffle.

5.  Upside down triangle in between the eyes for the beak.  I also used Chocolate Truffle.

6.  Using the same colour again, give the owl a feathery belly.

I actually find real owls very scary; especially when they turn their heads completely around!  Anyway, I thought this was easy to do and cute.  Hope you have fun with it =)
