DIY Fox Nails

Portions for Foxes

Simply put - everything with animals, and by animals I mean foxes, all of the time. I think Teemo is a little fox so I have a slight obsession with fox things because I think Teemo is a corgi/fox/terrier/ferret mix.

What You'll Need
Black, White, and Brown Nail Polish
A Clear Coat
Mechanical Pencil, Bobby Pin, or Toothpick for details (I use a mechanical pencil...I find it the most ergonomic, ha!)

Paint half of your nail white and allow it to dry.
Then with your chosen detail tool, draw a T in brown (above) and continue to fill in with a thick top and little ears (below)
With your detail tool again, in black, draw little half moon eyes and a nose. Then top with a top coat!

Clean with a cotton swap dipped in remover if you got a bit messy. And voila! Foxes.

    1. Not long at all - the main thing is waiting for it to dry! I think it too me like an hour with drying time included.

    1. Haha goodness no! I actually am like the most impatient person ever. Which is why multi tasking is involved here. I blogged / played on the internet while drying / watched TV.

  11. Aw what a cute idea! Your nails always look so cute. If I do anything but clear it chips in 30 seconds and drives me up the wall. You're right, Teemo does look like a little fox!

  12. Oh my gosh, I LOVE these! I can barely paint a solid color, so I think these would be a bit ambitious for me, but maybe for one of my friends!
