STEP 1

First of all it is important to make sure your nails are clean and ready to be painted before we start, so we need to do a little bit of preparation. If you have nail varnish on already, you will need to take it off with some nail varnish remover. After this is done, I usually wash my hands just to ensure my nails are completely clean.

Then it’s time to tidy your nails up a little and to shape them to how you want, using with your file. Also, if you want make your nails appear longer – you can push back your cuticles. If you place your hand in some warm water for a few minutes, it will help soften your skin making it easier for you to do this.

Once you are ready, you should apply a base coat to your nail as this will protect your nails from being stained but also will make applying your nail varnish much smoother. We used the Vitamin Base Coat (1) to do this.

STEP 2

Once your base coat is dry, we can start moving on to the more exciting parts – deciding what colour you want your nails to be! For this look, we decided to paint our nails with the nail varnish in the colour Caramel Cupcake (2). We applied 2 coats of the nail varnish as this makes sure the nails are covered well.

We recommend you apply two thin coats rather than one thick one as the thicker the coat, the longer it will take to dry.

STEP 3

Once the nail varnish is dry, it’s time to start creating this fox nail art! For this look, we decided to have the foxes face on the middle finger so we started by painting a thin line just over halfway up the nail, at a slight curve using the small pointed drawing brush (7) with the nail varnish in the colour Lux Lobster (3).

After painting on the top of the foxes head, we painted on the 2 ears using the small pointed drawing brush (7) with the nail varnish in the colour Lux Lobster (3)

STEP 4

Next we made an outline for the white area on the foxes face using the small pointed drawing brush (7) with the nail varnish in the colour Lux Lobster (3).

After creating the outline, we then filled in the area above it using the small pointed drawing brush (7) with the nail varnish in the colour Lux Lobster (3).

STEP 6

Now it’s time to paint on the white section of the face! As you can see in the photo above, we filled in the area that we had previously created the outline for, using the pointed drawing brush (8) with the nail varnish in the colour White Out (4).

STEP 7

To allow some time for the foxes face to dry before we paint on the facial features, we decided to paint on the outline for the foxes tail next. To do this, we using the small pointed drawing brush (7) with the nail varnish in the colour Lux Lobster (3).

STEP 10

Now it’s time to paint on the facial features to create the cute foxes face. To do this, we used the dotting tool (9) with the nail varnish in the colour Black Forest (5).

STEP 11

Next you need to paint black triangles inside the ears to add the finishing touches to them. To do this, we used the small pointed drawing brush (7) with the nail varnish in the colour Black Forest (5). We also shaped the bottom of the foxes face a little (you can see this in the images showing the final look!) using the small pointed drawing brush (7) with the nail varnish in the colour Lux Lobster (3).

STEP 12

Now it’s time to add the final touches to this fox nail art! We decided to paint on some cute little paws at the bottom of the foxes face using the small pointed drawing brush (7) with the nail varnish in the colour Mocha (6).

 

And that’s how we created this fox nail look! It’s a gorgeous nail look for your nails!

    This is sooooo cute! I have a fox scarf and the sweetest fox pin from Pastel Elixir so this would be perfect with them. Flora would adore this too. Will definitely have to try this one, thank you for the step-by-step! Xx

    That little fox is absolutely adorable! I love how you painted the face on one fingernail and then the tail on the other. I have a friend who loves foxes so I’ll definitely be showing her this nail look!

      Thank you! I thought the little face was super cute. Didn’t a colour to steal the light from the fox so I thought a neutral base colour was a good choice 😀

    I love how the fox nail art extends to two nails! The fox looks SUPER cute and I appreciate how easy you make it seem to do the fox nail art!

      I really like designs that extend over more then one nail, I feel like it allows there to be more depth to the look rather then trying to squish it into one nail. It also looks really cool 😀 aww thank you. I’m so glad to hear that I’ve made it look easy, I try to make it nice and easy to follow so anyone can try it if they would like to 🙂
