Whoo's There?

Owl Charm Nail Art

I love owls.  I feel a sort of kinship with them as a fellow nocturnal creature.  I always feel happy when I hear one outside my window hooting, or catch a glimpse of one flying in the night (hoping it is carrying mail somewhere).  I've had these +Bundle Monster owl charms for a while, so Halloween season seemed like the perfect time to try them out.

I did a gradient background for the #wnac2014 challenge.  I wanted the charm to stand out, so I chose a lighter color scheme.  The Sinful Color polish Silver Belle reminded me of snow like a snowy owl.  It also has silver glitter, so I paired it with a silver polish for the gradient.

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Sinful Colors - Silver Belle
  • Ulta - Gray Couture
Other Supplies:
  • Bundle Monster owl charm
  • Makeup sponge
  • Krazy Glue
  • Base and top coats

To create this look:
  1. Apply a base color in Silver Belle.  This polish is pretty thin, so it will take a few coats.

  2. Using the wet sponge method, create a gradient using Silver Belle and Gray Couture.
