Hello everyone, in my last post we talking about easy animal nail art. Today we’re going to do dog puppy nail art design. I did a cat one a while back so now it’s time to try out a dog. Today I’ll be doing dog nail art on shorter nails than usual. The colors I use for this look are white and black. Along with a light and a dark brown and an orchid color for the glitter accent. I layered a metallic gold in a gold glitter and for the dog details I use two black and white nail art nail polishes.
As for the tools, I used a thin synthetic brush to create the dog’s nose and mouth and dotting tools for the paw prints and eyes. Base coat and topcoat were used to prep and seal the design.
First apply base coat to all of your nails for the thumb and pinky. I’m painting two layers of an orchid nail polish and this one is actually textured but I smooth it out with topcoat later on. As an easy accent without using studs or rhinestones, I’m adding a couple white dots with white nail polish and a dotting tool.Next up we have the index finger and for this one I added two coats of white nail polish for a full opacity. To make paw prints I’m adding some large black dots and I’m spacing them out so we have room to add the little toes.
Next I’m adding three smaller dots along the big ones to complete the paw prints.If you don’t have dyeing tools on hand, use a bobby pin and toothpicks instead to fill in the empty spaces. I added a few extra dots for the middle nai. Let’s start off the puppy-dog face with brown nail polish round out the top of the head like so for the bottom of the face.
I’m taking white nail polish and I’m adding a smaller semicircle to add ears.Use a thin synthetic brush or a toothpick dipped in dark brown nail polish and add two thin stripes on each side. Next let’s emphasize the muzzle area of the face with a white nail art polish. Adding a vertical stripe will make the face appear longer and less like a bear.
Now let’s make some eyes by adding two large black dots then add some light reflection to the eyes with two smaller white dots let’s finish off the puppy-dog face with a nose and mouth using a black striping polish. For the nose I’m adding two lines to make a v-shape and then filling it in to make a triangle and a short vertical line underneath the nose then a horizontal line to finish off the mouth.
For the glitter accent nail I’m laying down a layer of metallic gold nail polish. Next I’m adding a coat of glitter nail polish and this one is quite chunky so I’m patting the brush down instead of swiping it. So the big glitter chunks don’t get wiped off this dog gets a treat and we’re making a bone for him by adding four large white dots connect the
dots in the middle and the bones done. Now just add some top coat and your dog nails are finished.
