Tutorial Tuesday: Omnom Nail Art!

Hello, readers! It's time for your weekly tutorial! This week it is the cute candy loving monster named Omnom from the popular app game, Cut the Rope. (If you don't know what I am talking about, go download and start the fun now! It's addictive and he is just the cutest little monster!)

Here is a preview collage of this tutorial, you can find full sized pictures and instructions further down in this post.

Here is a flashback to the full mani I've previously posted:

Things needed for the tutorial:

OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons, Color Club Twiggie (in my post, I used Ulta Limelight but I don't have that one anymore so this was close), OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Black Onyx.

Striper brush, detail brush, round end of a cleanup brush for a "bigger dotting tool," and a small dotting tool.

Step 1) Paint 2 coats of OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons.

Step 2) Use either the detail brush or the bottle brush in Color Club Twiggie and make a rounded shape with a flat bottom. I'm not sure how to describe this body shape any differently LOL.

Step 3) Use your detail brush and Twiggie to make little lumps for the arms and legs.

Step 4) Use the detail brush and Twiggie to make the little antenna on the top of Omnom's head. It's like a curved line with a dot on the end. You could use a dotting tool to make the dot if that is easier.

Step 5) Use OPI Alpine Snow and the end of your cleanup brush(acting as a big dotting tool) to make two big eyes. Make sure they touch a bit in the middle.

Step 6) Use your striper brush and OPI Black Onyx to make a smile from one side of the head to the other.

Step 7) Use your detail brush or end of the striper brush with Alpine Snow to make 4 upside down triangles for teeth.

Step 8) Use the striper brush and Black Onyx to outline the teeth.

Step 9) Use your small dotting tool and Black Onyx to make the pupils of the eyes.

Step 10) Use your striper brush and Black Onyx to outline the body and eyes. If you don't feel comfortable doing this step, I think he still looks cute in step 9 and you could stop there! It's up to you!

Don't forget to add a thick, quick drying top coat to protect and seal in your design! I prefer Seche Vite, H K Girl Top Coat, or Poshe.  Put a thick bead of top coat on the brush and gently spread it toward the tips and side, taking great care to not let the bristles touch the polish underneath. Thinner top coats can cause streaking or bleeding of the colors and the bristles drag lines through the design. YOU'RE DONE!

And, another gif that google+ added to my album for me, so I had to share! LOL
