Giraffe Nails!!

In Nails, OPI, Orly, Sinful Colors by Jacki76 Comments

 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!

    I love this! My little girl is 3 as well and she asked me to put a giraffe on my nail but had no clue how to go about it. Needless to say, I do now 🙂 thank you so much!

    Jackie, so sorry i am commenting late on this, but WOW what a mani. I've seen it over the last couple of days and loved it, it's everywhere on pinterest and its just GENIUS. I love the clash of the colours, the simplicity, the accent nail, but most of all, i just love how happy and smiley i feel everytime i look at it. Utter genius xxxxxxx

    Wow I love this! Giraffes are my favorite animal, so I want to try this mani sometime, thank you so much for posting! The color choices and execution are just phenomenal. I'm pretty new to nail art and not so great with free hand yet, but looking forward to it!

    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!
