I have been inspired by the insanely adorable and talented cutepolish. I watched her panda bear tutorial and suddenly realized that I didn’t have to interpret the video literally. So I went for a brown bear. Because I love the office, and whenever I think about the word “bear” I think about when Jim is impersonating Dwight and asking him which is better the brown bear or the black bear. Anyways, it took me a good 30 minutes or so to complete all of my nails. I was scared of how my right hand would turn out because I’m not great at keeping my left hand steady, but it turned out SO cute!!
Here is what I used:
Nails Inc – Lanesborough Place as my base color, OPI Get in the Expresso Lane as the main color of the bear and pupils, OPI A-Taupe the Space Needle as my accent color, and Konad white for the backs of the eyes. I used an extra small gel liner brush (make-up brush) for the shape of his head, just a half circle. Then I used the non brush end of a thin paint brush (the end that you would normally hold, that is round at the end for the bigger dots. The smaller dots I used a bobby pin, because I do not have a dotting tool.
What do you think? Too cutesy for you?
The thing I love most is that you can make other kinds of bears – pink or blue bears for maybe a baby shower mani, turn it into Mickey Mouse, a bunny, whatever floats your boat!
Also, now that I know I can use all these other objects for dotting tools my brain is going nuts. This is going to be so much fun!
Have fun painting! xoxo
