How to : Mr Fox nail art!

Wednesday, 3 October 2012


Remember my cute Sugarhill Boutique fox print dress? Well to tie in with my beauty posts on my blog I was asked if I could produce some fox nail art that would go with the dress. Obviously I said yes! I am becoming a bit more experimental with my nails at the moment, so I figured why not!

 I did instagram a photo of my 'fox' nail art and there was a good response, so here's some simple step by step instructions on how to recreate it!
You will need :
Base colour nail varnish
Brown nail varnish
White nail varnish
Black nail varnish
Kirby grip


1. Choose a base colour. I went with a colour that was similar to the Sugarhill boutique fox dress, you know to keep everything co-ordinated! 

2. Take a brown nail polish and paint the top half of your nail straight across to create the base for the face. Then, so go up either side to create the ears. It will be messy and you will get nail varnish up the sides of your fingers, however we have nail polish remover so it is fine!

3. Once that has dried take your white nail polish and paint the very top of your nail in a V shape. Using a kirby grip I filled in the white triangles for Mr Fox' ears!

4. Take your black nail polish and your kirby grips, paint two small dots for eyes and then another smaller dot for the nose just where the two white sides of the V meets. This could look cute with a pink nose - I'll have to try this out. 

5. Finally give your fox nail art a bit of gloss with a topcoat of your choice and use the cotton buds dipped in nail varnish remover to clear up any mess left around your fingers.

I did this one one accent nail, however if you wanted you could go all out and do it on all of them. It isnt too fiddily. Once you get the hang of the basic shapes you need to create with each colour nail varnish it can be finished in a few mins, depending on drying time of course! I hope you enjoyed this fox nail art tutorial, and that it was easy to follow!


Also I said I would be announcing the winner of my Sugarhill Boutique giveaway today and the winner is....... MEGS!

Much Love
