Doctor "Hoo" Nails

So I decided to enter a contest on Instagram. Well, I almost had to because the theme for the contest was Owls! Woot woot! It was hosted by Manicure Mommy. And this was the mani I entered! Doctor "Hoo" nails! :) He is wearing a fez and bow tie like the 11th Doctor! Oh and please excuse the nail wear on the Doctor, I forgot to take a picture of this with my normal camera right after I did it! I was so intent on getting my phone camera to work for Instagram!

Here are the owls as they started out. I used L'Oreal Owl's Night for his body and spots with Orly Nite Owl for his belly. Are you seeing a theme in the polishes I chose? I kind of had to use those colors, right? His eyes are Essie Good as Gold and Wet 'n Wild Black Creme. His itty bitty beak is Klean Color Metallic Mango.

Another quick shot of the owls. I just loved how they turned out! :)

For his bow tie and fez I mixed Zoya Sooki and Catrice Lost in Mud. I then outlined it using a Black Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen.

This was my first nail art contest to enter and I was one of five finalists! Sadly I didn't win (I came in tied for second, I believe, and now I am third for votes) but I had a lot of fun doing it!

Well, since I am not actually up-to-date with my Doctor Who (I'm only on season 4!) I will leave you so I can go do some more fantastic watching of some wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff! :)


  1. This is beyond great! Dr Who makes me proud to be British
