Dog Nail Art Tutorial

Saturday, 17 August 2013

I've got a little tutorial today!  I'm working through all. the. animals. and today I've got some really simple dog nail art to show you.  Now, I'll be honest, I'm more of a cat fan myself, but I'm all for equal opportunities, so we've got some woof action going down today.

So, for this manicure you will need:
  • Base colour (I've used the Models Own Fruit Pastel Collection as my base colours)
  • White polish
  • Brown polish
  • Black polish
  • Pink polish
  • Dotting tools
  • Top coat
So, to start, paint your nails with a base colour.  You can use any colour really, as long as it will contrast enough with the black and white of your dog.

Take your white polish and carefully paint a round semi-circle at the tips of your nails.

Use a large dotting tool, and brown polish, to sweep an ear shape at the top of your dog.

Take your black polish and a dotting tool and place two large dots for the eyes.

Whilst this is drying, take your black polish and place small dots for your dogs nose.

Finally, with a small dotting tool (or nail art pen) create the dogs mouth.
