Getting Foxy with Amy

Hey there, all you Shannon Bear readers! I'm Amy from A is for Ampersand, and I am thrilled to be guest posting here for Shannon's fantastic blog party. Shannon is an absolute gem, and I kind of love her guts. Just sayin.

I've got a silly little fall nail DIY for you today featuring my favorite--foxes!


This is very easy to do but just takes a little patience. Here's what you'll need:

  • red or orange polish
  • white polish
  • black polish with a very fine brush. a sharpie would work, too!
  • tape
Once you've got your supplies, here's the process. It is veeeeery very important to be patient and wait for EACH STEP to dry before going on to the next. Otherwise your tape will peel it all off!


1. place your tape as shown in the diagram and paint the white triangle.
2. Peel off the tape and let the white triangle dry completely.
3. Place a piece of tape against the left edge of the triangle.
4. Paint the red, peel, and let dry completely.
5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 for the opposite side, and of course, let dry.
6. Now just add two little dots for eyes and a nose at the bottom, and you've got a fox!


See? Not too hard. Just a little time consuming. Be sure to have a fantastic tv show on while you do it.

For more DIYs, free blog clipart, vintage style, and thrifty adventures, be sure to stop by A is for Ampersand and say hello. I'd love to meet you!

Eeeek! Don't you just love this?! Now I just need to figure out how to create an owl and I'll have Fox & Owl nails! Be sure to head over to Amy's blog to check out her latest thrifts and crafty creations. She's one of my absolute favorites!
