How to create Teddy Bear Nails!

So today I'm going to be showing you all how to create teddy bears nails. There are 2 reasons why I decided to create teddy bear nails, one teddy bears are superly duperly cute and two my penguin nails went down such a treat I thought I'd carry on with the animal theme. Everyone loves animals right?.. :)

To create teddy bear nails you will need:
  • Black nail varnish
  • White nail varnish
  • Light brown nail varnish
  • Dark brown nail varnish
  • Top coat
  • Dotting tools/ cocktail sticks

You can use any black, white, light brown and dark brown nail varnishes to create teddy bear nails, it's not essential that you have to use the same ones as I did. If anybody would like to know which nail varnishes I used then feel free to comment in the box below. Don't feel like you have to rush out and buy nail art tools too because there really is no need, cocktail sticks and Q-tips work as great nail art tools!

If you wish to create teddy bear nail then follow my nice and easy steps.

1.) Apply the light brown nail varnish to your nails. You may need two coats depending on what your nail varnish is like.


2.) Once dry, it's time to create some paw prints! Using the dark brown nail varnish and a large dotting tool, apply two dots to every finger nail apart from your middle finger nail. Then using a small dotting tool and the dark brown nail varnish, apply four dots around each of the large dots. if this sounds confusing then just copy from the photograph.


3.) Let's create our lovely bear. Using the dark brown nail varnish apply a large circular shape (the head) to half of your middle finger nail. Again using the large dotting tool and the dark brown nail varnish apply two dots (the ears) to either side of the circle.


4.) It's time to give our bear a face. Using the light brown nail varnish apply a smaller circular shape to the large circular shape. Also using the light brown nail varnish and a small dotting tool, apply a dot to the centre of each 'ear'. 


5.) Once dry it's time to give our bear a nose, mouth and a pair of eyes. Using the white nail varnish and also a small dotting tool, apply to dots just above the light brown circle. Then using the black nail varnish and another small dotting tool, carefully dot the centre of the eyes. 

To create a nose, all you have to do is use a large dotting tool and the black nail varnish and carefully apply a dot to the centre of the light brown circle.

To create a mouth draw a small black line connecting from the nose, using the black nail varnish and also a tiny dotting tool. 


6.) Once your nails are fully dry, apply a top coat. Top coat will make your nails look ultra glossy and it'll also prevent your nail varnish from chipping and also coming off. 


I hope you like my teddy bear nails! :D

  1. Awwww these are sooooo cute! I love the colour of the brown polishes you've used too! Brown isn't a colour I own in polish but maybe one (or two shades) need to be added to my collection! :)
