Woodsy Winter

Christmas Owl Nails

Who else is watching the non-stop Christmas movies on TV right now? It's hard not to get in the holiday spirit with Christmas everywhere you look.

I received the Disco Nights, Festive Lights Holiday 2019 collection by Artistic Nail Design, and so my holiday/winter manis begin. Dance It Out is a deep red creme, and it looks great alone or with some nail art.

Polish Used:
  • Artistic Colour Gloss - Dance It Out
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Kiss nail stickers - Yuletide
  • Acrylic paint - white and brown
  • Nail art brush

I don't buy the Starbucks bottled coffee that often, but the holiday ones out right now have an owl on it! That 100% increased my interest in the product (yay for the person in marketing who thought of that design). These nails are inspired by that Starbucks label. To create this look:
  1. Apply the base color with Dance It Out.
  2. Add various snowflake nail stickers on each nail.

  3. Use acrylic paint to paint an owl on the middle finger.
    • Start with the owl's white head and body.
    • Use a tan paint to add wings, and two circles for the eye markings.
    • Use a darker brown to add eyes, a beak, and feather marks on the wings.
    • Add a crescent shape in tan to each eye.
