Hello! I hope you're all having a nice weekend so far. Today will most likely be another quick post since I have an exam on Tuesday. These wolf nails looked a lot better in my head, and I think that the colours are to blame. I posted these on Instagram asking for alternate suggestions, but by the time I got around to changing them, tip wear had already consumed the wolf :P And so, here is the original design:
I'm happy with most parts of the wolf itself. I particularly like the nose/mouth area, but I'm a little irked by the eyes. I don't think I aligned them properly and they look cross-eyed to me. The wolf took awhile to paint so I had to paint something easier on the rest of the nails. I went with the pastel colours because I used those to paint the wolf, but I really wish I had gone for a grey/taupe palette instead.
I started with American Apparel T-Shirt on all of my nails. I used a striping brush and American Apparel Office and American Apparel L'Esprit. The square studs are from Born Pretty Store. I used a small detail brush to paint the wolf, starting with lighter colours and building up the darker ones on top. The additional colours I used are American Apparel Dynasty, American Apparel Echo Park, American Apparel Hassid, and OPI You Don't Know Jacques.
Thanks for looking and have a good day!
