Little Owls ♥

Today I’m sharing a cute owl nail design. :)

Owls 1

I chose to use our teal purple.

I’m actually quite proud of these. I think they look adorable! And they were quite easy to do! I used the side of the polish brush for the wings and a hair grip for everything else. It’s all made up of dots! I love how well the feather detail turned out. All I did was make a dot in the lighter colour then added a dot of the base colour over the top to get the half moon shape. So easy!

What do you think of my owl nails?

Polishes used: Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Watermelon, Plum and Prickly Pear. Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Lemon Sugar and Avon SpeedDry+  in Don’t Be Jaded.

Valentine’s Day Love Heart Nails

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day! I hope you all have a lovely time whatever you are doing. I won’t be celebrating much as me and Teddi thought it was a bit too close to our Civil Partnership which is on the 19th.

But I thought I’d share some Valentine’s Day inspired nails anyway. This isn’t anything complicated. Sometimes simple nails can be the most effective! I decided to stick to the classic Valentine’s theme of bright bold reds and love hearts. Here’s what I came up with..

Valentine's Day Nails 1

For this look I used Barry M’s Gelly Hi-Shine in Blood Orange. I think this is a perfect shade for Valentine’s Day as it is highly pigmented and super glossy! For the hearts I used fimo heart shapes which I bought a while back.

This was my first time using fimo shapes but it’s really easy and looks wonderful! I love how many different shapes you can get! I will definitely be using these in other nail looks very soon!

What do you think of my fimo heart nails? I really like the contrasting colours. It’s surprising how good red and yellow look together.
