Jungle book inspired nail art- Step by Step Tutorial

“These are the four that are never content: that have never been filled since the dew began- Jacala's mouth, and the glut of the kite, and the hands of the ape, and the eyes of Man.” - Rudyard Kipling, Jungle book. 

Jungle book is not only a book or a show which made my childhood, it is an emotion. The extraordinary tale of Mowgli is still engraved deep in my mind. The lyrics of the famous song still linger in my mind even after so many years.

So as Mowgli is back again in town, I thought of doing a Jungle book inspired nail art. But before starting the tutorial, I would like to thank my blogger friends for the motivation. Thank you Anjali for the idea and Kanu, Snigdha, Ragini, Dr. Farhat. Love you all…

So lets begin..


  • I have used a light pastel green as a base.
  • Then I sponged a light leaf green and a dark green around on the nails.
  • Used shades of green acrylic color to draw branches and leaves. Experiment.
  • Mowgli, Baloo and Sher Khan are free hand using acrylic paints.
  • Seal the paint with a non-streaky top coat. 

I suck at painting and so this was definitely not up to the mark. I failed terribly. But what to do? I couldn't stop myself from sharing. Also I have no clue why Sher Khan is hanging from nowhere. .. :( And my ending love for smudged eye-makeup, I smudged Sher Khan too :P
Anyway, let me know your thoughts. I am all ears today. Pour in your honest opinions.
