I found the original inspiration image on Pinterest, and followed the source to the original blog, Cindy Blogs Nails. Here's the image that was pinned on Pinterest, it's a pretty compact little tutorial!
|Owl mani tutorial from Cindy Blogs Nails|
It looks like Cindy freehanded the owl 'horns' and that's why ours look a little different. I decided to use the half moon paper reinforcement stickers to do mine, so my owls' 'horns' are smoother. It's just a different look. We also have different nail shapes, so I didn't think it would look good for me to include the owl feet on my mani. I do like them on her example though.
I've included the colors used in the caption on the first photo, if you're interested. To make the bellies, I just mixed the base color with some white and painted it on with a nail art brush. The eyes were done with a dotting tool, and the beaks and belly dots were done with a nail art brush.
I'm just super excited about how cute this turned out. I can't stop looking down at my adorable little owl family. The brown thumb owl is the mom, of course, and the little colored ones are the babies. I love the tiny blue pinky owl the most!
Only one more challenge day! The theme is officially "recreate your favorite mani from the challenge," but those of us that are doing this decided we didn't like that theme. So we changed it to "recreate your favorite mani by someone else from the challenge!" Stay tuned for that one! :)
