Today is Squirrel Appreciation Day! It’s a real thing, I swear. Obviously I couldn’t miss the opportunity to do some squirrel nails. I attempted a watercolor technique, which I need to practice some more, but I think my little squirrel turned out really cute! He’s a little bit chubby and insane-looking, but it’s ok 🙂
The base on most of my nails is OPI You Don’t Know Jacques. For the squirrel nail, I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales walls as the base, and OPI You Don’t Know Jacques, OPI Get in the Espresso Lane, Orly Decades of Dysfunction, China Glaze Kalahari Kiss, China Glaze Exotic Encounters, and China Glaze Mahogany Magic for the squirrel.
My technique needs some work, but I really love the watercolor effect. But, since I was not expecting a recognizable squirrel on my first attempt, I call this a success.
