ABC Challenge: O is for Owls

My love affair with owls goes back several decades. Without betraying my age, let me just say I’ve pretty much loved owls all my life! So, the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of the letter, O, is owls, of course!  I have a very cute owl-themed stamping plate, but I wanted to go back to my pre-stamping days and freehand this one. Here’s how it turned out:

Perfectly matches the throw my aunt crocheted for me!

O is for Owls 1

Despite the clown pants-y spots, I am really happy with how this turned out! The nail polishes I used were Wet n Wild in I Need A Refresh-Mint, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Black Out, White On and Mellow Yellow, Essie in Limo-Scene, and my coral and medium-grey frankenpolish. I also topped all nails with a matte top coat (Revlon Matte Top Coat) because, let’s face it, nearly everything looks better matte. Here’s a close-up:

Let me know what you think of this manicure!

    1. Thank you! I wish I’d come up with the negative space bit, but I didnt. I saw it on a bunch of manis on Pinterest while searching for half moon manis & loved it!
