NOTD - OWL nails

I did this manicure super-quickly and wore it just for a few days. I wasn't impressed by it too much :( I think I can re-do this MUCH more neatly! ALSO I top-coated with Seche Vite and I suppose there were just too many layers or the polishes didn't agree with it, because I suffered some tip shrinkage the next morning too!
I will re-try the look again with a better thought-out palette however! And do this more neatly with some reinforcements to make sure I get a nice half-moon shape!

That's a quick picture I took, and I didn't even clean-up the manicure. HOWEVERRR I thought the NYU 2013 and the little hearts and the owl on my pointer finger were too cute to pass up an opportunity to share with you guys!!

Here is the original tutorial I used -

And Here are the polishes I used!

OPI Tickle My France-y on all nails as my neutral 'underwear'
OPI Dating A Royal for main owl body on pointer and ring nails
OPI I Don't Give A Rotterdam for owl body accent color on pointer
OPI Swimsuit...Nailed It for owl body accent color on ring finger
OPI Did It On Em for dots & eyes on pointer finger
OPI Pink Friday for dots & eyes on ring finger
Barry M Vivid Purple for writing NYU 2013 and drawing the heartsies!

It was a fun attempt, I'm going to neaten it up and feature this manicure again for sure!
