You’ll remember that not long ago, I bought the brand new Bundle Monster image plate set. The two owl designs made it a must-have for me.
To make China Glaze Elephant Walk more my style, I turned them into Owl Nails with the help of Bundle Monster Image Plate BM-309.
After these cuties were on my nails, I fell in love with the manicure. And I appreciated the grey as the base colour.
I painted the tips of my nails black with China Glaze Liquid Leather so that the owls would have something to stand on.
If you look really closely at the cute owl on my middle finger, you’ll see that he’s a bit of a show-off. While all the others have their feet on the ground, he’s balancing himself on just one leg! What an attention-seeker!
Hehe, I also like how the owls look like they’re either wearing monocles or they have shiners!
