It’s about time, right? I knew I had to do squirrel nails at some point, and was playing with some new polishes the other day, and ended up with a few animal silhouettes, so naturally I had to do a squirrel. I think they’re adorable, and will definitely be doing these again. A lot.
For the base, I used Sally Hansen X-treme Wear in Blinding Blue (on sale at Target for less than $2! Yay!) And the squirrel was done with Orly Mirror Mirror, which has become my favorite light gray – it’s on my toes right now! Sorry about the yellow polish on my pinky – I didn’t see it until pictures and my editing software is being dumb.
After adding the frame around the nails, I think it ended up looking like some sort of squirrel cameo – which is so completely me! Funny, since my initial idea was to do a traditional cameo, but it just wasn’t working for me. I seriously can’t tell you how much I love these! I love the combination of the colors and the quirky design and the fact that they’re so simple.
It’s been a CRAZY weekend, so hopefully I’ll get around to posting the rest of my animal nails in the next day or so. I’ll probably end up doing a few more of them if I can find the time. I also have a few backed up swatches to post, too. And a LOT of new polishes to swatch. And a few on their way. So yeah, I’ll be busy.
