Sweetest Bestie Twin Nails

Hey friends! 

Today I have some cute twin nails to show you! My friend @25_sweetpea from Instagram asked me to collaborate with her and of course I agreed! I love her manis and she's so sweet, just like her name says! 

We decided on doing owl nails. I've never done owls before so I was extremely nervous. We both kinda were!

Take a look to see how we did.

We decided on doing a gradient base. The top picture in the collage was our inspo. And we agreed on only doing one owl since we weren't sure if we could fit more than one on one nail. She did such a great job! I love it!

Below is my gradient with top coat before adding anything over it.

Gradient with one coat of Seche Vite

I have become a big fan of doing gradients this way. I do my gradient like usual and then I go over it doing some lines with a striper brush. I love the effect it gives it. I used Sinful Shine At Sea, Sinful Colors Hazard, and Loreal Walk on the Beach. 

This is the glossy version of my solo. I didn't like the glare. This was the only photo that the glare didn't completely cover that poor little owl.

So I decided to matte it. I love it matte! I'm a big big fan of matte nails! I drew everything with nail polish and my favorite brushes that you can find here and here. I don't have brown acrylic paint and I was too lazy to mix colors. The owl was done only using dotting tools. I did one coat of Seche Vite and then I added one coat of Salon Perfect Matte Fx top coat to finish the look.
