I have a moo-tastic treat for you all today!  Inspired by Elisa’s Cow Print Nail Art Tutorial blog post and whilst wearing my cow pyjamas, I decided to try my first attempt at nail art and look how cute it turned out!!  Everybody say, “Moo Moo!” with me.  It was so easy to do.  I didn’t have plain black nail polish, so I used a black one with a shimmer – which makes my cow extra special!! Onto the tutorial…

What You Will Need

1.  Base coat (optional but recommended to prevent staining) – I used Nicole by OPI Base Coat Plus*
2.  White opaque nail polish – I used Rimmel London I Heart Lasting Finish in 085 London Clouds
3.  Black nail polish – I used FACE OF AUSTRALIA Molten Metallics in Iron Ore*
4.  Pink nail polish – I used FACE OF AUSTRALIA Luxe in Cotton Candy*
5.  Top coat (optional but recommended to prevent chipping) – in my excited state, I forgot
6.  Speed dry drops (optional but recommended as it speeds up drying time) – I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Speed Dry Drops

    Are those cow pyjamas… or is it a cow onesie? Onesies are so back in fashion. I have a heart one!

    Love the nails, such a cute idea.
