31 Days of Halloween- Day 16: Spooky Owl Nails

Or cute. Depends on your point of view. Ha. 🙂

This design is based off of IHaveACupcake’s Owl Nail Art YouTube video. I recommend checking out this talented lady’s designs.

I first began by deciding what the color of my owls would be. I wanted them more creepy and realistic, so I chose a brownish gray–Orly Sea Gurl from their Birds of a Feather collection:

Two coats, no top coat

Then I painted the wings with Orly’s Nite Owl–also from Birds of a Feather collection. (Nite Owl… how serendipitous lol). I used my largest dotting tool to make the base of the eyes in China Glaze Ingrid.

I took a nail art striper in a golden orange and made the beaks and feathers. Black creme makes the eyes and the golden orange finishes them nicely. I used the same black creme to add angry eyebrows LoL.

Apply a top coat and you’re done. 😀


I also wanted to thank everyone who entered the Halloween haiku giveaway. Judging is going on as we speak (or as you read). I will notify the winner ASAP.  😀

    • I originally didn’t want any of the other colors besides Fowl Play. I’m glad that I took a second look. Sea Gurl and Nite Owl are colors I’ll wear by themselves a lot.
