Wait to dry!

Next using a thin brush and black nail polish make the feathers. I used Rimmel 60secs Super shine  Black Out. I chose to use a very small and thin brush and as little polish as possible to create the strokes or feathers. I then used a dark blue nail polish and large dotting tool and created a large dot at the bottom of the feather. I used Hello Kitty OPI My Pal Joey. The last bit is to add a small black dot in the middle of the dark blue dot.

Add the top coat and you are done.

Furry Princess’s 4th Birthday!

Hi Hi! 😀

It’s my Furry Princess’s First Birthday and in honour of her birthday I am putting up the manicure from a couple years back 😀

Furry Princess nailsHey Hey!!

In honour of my furry princess’s birthday I decided to dedicate a nail art tutorial post just for her 😀

What you need:

Top coat Base coat
Grey nail polish
White nail polish
Brown nail polish
Black nail polish/striper/nail art pen
Dotting tools

First things first, put your basecoat to protect the nail. I’m using Barry M Base coat Top coat and Nail Hardener.

Wait to dry!

Now for the colour of my furry princess. Get your grey nail polish and paint two coats. I am using Make Up Academy in the colour Bullet.

More waiting!

Next get out your black nail polish. I am using a nail art pen, to see the review click on the link  https://theheartofnails.wordpress.com/2014/11/18/nail-art-pen-review/

You need to make my Furry Princess’s ears. She has big floppy ears so just left or right of the middle of the nail(depending on whether you are doing her left ear or right ear first) start off making a curved line towards the edge of the nail then draw a straight line down the edge like I have in the picture. Do for both ears.

Now for her big brown eyes!! Using the biggest dotting tool I have I got my white nail polish and brown nail polish ready. I am using Collection French Manicure French White and a brown colour from a collection of 7 nail polishes called Flawless Nails. Make big white dots for her eyes and while you are waiting you can make her nose. I think she has quite a big nose so do a big black upside down triangle shape with your black nail polish. 

Hopefully the whites of her eyes are now dry so you can make her a little more friendly by using the brown nail polish. Using a slightly smaller dotting tool do a couple of dots on the whites of her eyes.

Wait to dry!! Now apply the last part to the eyes, the pupils. Just make black dots and your done. Apply the top coat to make it more shiny and Ta DA!!! Furry Princess Nails are now completed. 😀

Also to make the manicure more interesting play around a bit more with the design like I have. Some nails I have just the ears and the eyes, some have the ears, eyes and nose and the thumb nail has the ears, eyes, nose and the outline of her face.

Next starting with the thumb make the bowl of porridge. Start with your white nail polish and paint from your cuticle to half way up your nail, I used Color Club On Cloud Nine (2coats).

I used a nail art pen then went over it with a dotting tool and Rimmel 60secs Black out nail polish. You can also outline the blue stripe if you wish.

For the Goldilocks nail (pointer finger)start of with a peach/ beige colour and paint in the middle of your nail just a little over halfway.  I used a peach colour from a collection of nail polish called Lumiere. While that is drying make the “Gold” locks with a yellow nail polish. I used a large dotting tool and Rimmel 60 secs Chin up Buttercup and a circling motion to try and make it look curly. For the face I used a white nail polish and a large dotting tool for the whites of the eyes, blue nail polish for the eyes, black for the pupils and a small dotting tool for the eye lashes. I also added a pink smile of a mouth using small dotting tool and Selena Gomez’s Nicole by OPI Naturally. Lastly I added a little black bow for the top of her head.

Papa bear nail (middle finger)I used two brownish nail polishes. I started off with Collection 2000 Maxiflex Bronzed and made the shape of a bear head using a large dotting tool. I also made this shape on my ring finger and pinkie while waiting for it to dry. I then used Cupcakes and Champagne Ruby Wing Colour changing nail polish Cinnamon Buns on top. For the ears I used a pink nail polish and a large dotting tool and placed a dot on the inside of the ears. The eyes I used white and a large dotting tool, the green (Etude House Handmade Jam Green tea) for the eyes and black for the pupils and nose. I added a black bow tie for papa bear, a red ear bow for mama bear (Etude House Berry Delicious Strawberry Soufflé Strawberry Jam) and a blue dummy for baby bear.

To complete this manicure add your top coat and you are done.
