Giraffe Nails!!

 I have a treat for you today! Finally some free-hand nail art! I have been struggling for inspiration on some good nail art lately and today I had a good plan: ask my 3 1/2 year old daughter, Hailey, what I should do on my nails. She immediately asked if I could do giraffe nails, bringing us to this post!


I used: OPI Natural Nail Base Coat
2 Coats of my new OPI That's Hot! Pink
Orly Lemonade and a striper brush to freehand the giraffe head and ears
OPI In My Back Pocket and a striper/dotting tools to do the noses, spots, and the horns
OPI Alpine Snow and Sinful Colors Black on Black with dotting tools to do the eyes and nostrils

Accent nail:
I stamped OPI Alpine Snow with the giraffe print design on Bundle Monster Plate BM-215 
I used my striper and filled in the giraffe spots with the orange OPI In My Back Pocket(since the orange wasn't able to stamp opaque enough)

Top Coat of Poshe

What do you think? I think these are just too cute and one of my favorite animal designs I've done! I will  most likely do a tutorial on these giraffes in the near future if any of you would be interested? Thanks for reading!

Pin It!

  54. Hello! Love this design! I would also be interested in seeing a tutorial because I am going to attempt this myself and have never done any freehand at all! I would also know what if you think this design would fit on smaller nails? I can't tell in this photo if you have a "small nail space" or not..? I know I sure do so this might be a hard design for me to squeeze in, but I am gonna try!

  55. Excellent job! My son would love this :) I like the fact that you do your mani for kids :)))
