Hello! I’d like to introduce you to Mr. Moo!
Let’s all say, “How are you, Mr. Moo?” 😛
I don’t really drink milk except with my cereal, but I love eating cheese and ice cream…just not together.
So, my way of saying thank you to all the cows out there for producing milk was through Alien Cow Nail Art!
In university, one of my classmates was obsessed with cows to the point where she always had to buy any clothing that had cartoon cows on them! And she was so proud that every single pair of socks she owned featured cow prints!
I like cows, but apparently not nearly as much as she did!
Do you like cows? Are you lactose-intolerant? Do you sometimes feel the urge to say “Moo!” to strangers?
Edit: Apparently they’re supposed to be giraffe heads, but they totally remind me more of cow heads because of the shape.
Hehe, so I changed this to “Alien Cow Nails” since they look like cows with antennae! :p
If you decide to replicate this, you may want to remove the horns to be more accurate! Or…you can just have fun like I did! 😀

Konad Image Plate s10 Picture
Konad Image Plate s10 Review (Cow)
The cow image was small, but really easy to pick up and stamp with. The only part was the ball on the horns that didn’t transfer well, but I think it was more my fault. I don’t know why I’m always rushing when I’m stamping! Well, maybe it’s because I get really excited and happy when I’m Konading! 😛 Or…maybe I’m just a sloppy Konader. Doesn’t bother me.
Bundle Monster Image Plate BM 222 Review (Cow Print)
I thought that the cow print would be so cute with the Konad cow face. The cow print was easy to pick up, and it transferred well. Just try to apply even pressure as you roll the stamper onto your nails or you’ll get smudging like mine.
