Today's nails are for the newly re-opened Facebook group, "Challenge Your Nail Art". For the month of October there is a challenge every other day, and the October challenges are mostly centered around fall and Halloween. Super fun themes, so I decided to give it a try. I am a day late but here are my owl nails!
I decided to go with a strongly fall-leaning theme for my owl nails, because the weather is finally cooling down here and I am getting into the fall spirit. I decided to add a stack of books because owls and books traditionally go together, and I tried to place the leaf decals over them to suggest that maybe the owl has a stack of books hiding in his little owl tree.
My base orange polish is Essie's "Taj-ma-haul", and my main yellow is Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in "Lemon Heaven." I also used Sinful Colors "Courtney Orange" and the brown is LA Colors "Ruthless". My black- which I stamped with- is just the classic Wet N Wild black creme.
I actually used 4 different plates to achieve this look. The owl himself comes from Bundle Monster's "Fuzzy and Ferocious" collection:
