Sleepy Teddy Bear Nails

Painted Fingertips | Sleepy bear nails inspired by CDBnails

Hi everyone!

A while ago, I saw these adorable sleepy bear nails on CDBnails. I have been waiting to recreate them and finally got around to it! Painted Fingertips | Sleepy bear nails inspired by CDBnailsI started off with a base of LA Girl Black Illusion and the rest has been done using acrylic paints. I used the version by CDBnails to help me along and just had fun painting!

At least he is recognisable but I really wish that face had some out as well as Cheyenne’s version did!

    This is so ridiculously adorable! I never would have noticed anything off with the bear’s eyes if you hadn’t mentioned it. I love how it goes so seamlessly from one nail to the other!

      Thanks! He looks ok until you compare him with Cheyenne’s version, haha 🙂

  • Deborah – Love Varnish

    Your positioning of the design is really good! And the backdrop is indeed amazing :).

    Great recreation! Your bear is adorable, even if the eyes are off. Which I didnt notice till you mentioned it by the way.

    Faces are so hard and I feel your pain! But I still think it looks super cute. 🙂
