ABC Challenge: O is for Owls

Following Tuesday's total disasticure I am pleased to say that this mani is probably my favourite piece of nail art that I've ever done-I'm totally in love with it and don't want to take it off ever! Sorry if it sounds like I'm bragging but I'm just really proud of myself that I've done something that looks so good, I was so surprised how well it turned out!

So this week is 'O' in the ABC Challenge and I knew what I wanted to do straight away-something I saw a while ago and knew I would recreate. Before I even started my own blog I found these amazing owl nails by The Little Canvas and loved them. I finally got around to doing them myself!

Polishes used: Essie-Mojito Madness, Barry M-Lychee (finally I own this beauty!), Collection 2000-Look At Me! and Rimmel-Tangy Tangerine. Details were added with my new Barry M Nail Art Pen (I LOVE being able to spend my hard earned Boots points on awesome things!) which worked like a dream. 
Without further ado then (I took lots of pictures because I love them so much!):


Sadly this guy suffered a surprise zip attack shortly after he was
finished, hence the dint


This one really makes
me giggle!


So there we have it! I think next time I do these (there will be a next time!!!) I'll put a neutral base on over my nails first, just because the green makes my natural nail colour look a bit weird and purple (see my thumb on the first pic). I really love them though! They're making me really happy =)

Hope you like them as much as I do!

  4. Hi Jenni!! Welcome to the ABC challenge! (I know I''m a lil late I had been MIA lately!) I loved your owls! I've been wanting to do some for so long and I don't know why I haven't.

    1. Thank you so much! You should definitely do them, they're super easy ans really adorable!

      Lychee's lovely isn't it? I knew I had to get it once I saw it cropping up in other people's blogs. I've got so many green polishes and none of them look nice together so I thought it was about time I invested in some lol
