Cheeky bunny slippers: Diamond Cosmetics Razzmatazz

Hello ladies,

I had two dwarf rabbits as a child and I have been dreaming of getting a lop eared house bunny. There may be a new cheeky faced and fuzzy tailed member of my little household in the fall. Until then, I will have to be content with rabbit slippers. 

The look was created with Migi Nail Art pens. I began by drawing the half circle of the rabbit face and the outline of the ears. I used the brush to paint white faces and the pen to shade in the ears. I left the center oval of each ear empty of color and highlighted them with an Art Club striper in Malmsy, a deep pink foil. 

To create the noses and mouths, I layered black over a violet shimmer pen. I think it gives it more of a watercolor feel. The eyes were done with the Migi pen as well, but it may be worth experimenting with a dotting tool. I love how each of the bunnies has a different expression. My middle finger is jolly while my pinky looks a bit disgruntled. I used pink rhinestones to make them cheeky. 








Razzmatazz is a beautiful pink with a strong violet shimmer and subtle duochrome. I wore Razzmatazz for a couple days before creating the bunny nail art. I loved the reflection in the sun and the soft color change in lower light. The formula is sheer, yet builds well. I am wearing three coats over Super Base. If you are a pink lover, I recommend adding Razzmatazz to your collection.

I received some inspiration for this manicure from the lovely Agnes from Beauty Vibes. She created a look called Blushing Bunnies and I kept thinking about white rabbits with pink cheeks! Are there any other bunny manicures you believe I would enjoy? Feel free to share a link in the comments. Do you love bunnies as much as I do?

Products in this post were sent to me for review. Razzmatazz can be purchased in the US from diamondcosmetics.com and internationally from boozyshop.nl. The Gold Nail Art Pen Set #100 is available at miginailart.com.

Happy painting, ladies!

  4. I remember them well. I have pictures of you holding a bunny. Now bunnies are painted on your nails. Whenever you want to visit Max, he will be your lop eared bunny. I love the color underneath. Love, me.

  5. I'd like to get a bunny too. I don't know if they get along with Ragdolls. LOL

    There wouldn't be any reason not to get along with these 10 little bunnies you made. So cute!

  22. Joan: Thanks for all your recent comments! You are a dear! To answer your question, I don't mind the 3D additions like rhinestones and fimo. My cat loves it when I scratch the bridge of his nose with embellished nails. So cute! Agnes did a great job with her Blushing Bunnies!

    LacquerObsession: Thanks so much! I'm so glad you like how it turned out. Bunnies!

    Rachel: Thanks! My owl ring? They must be selling a copy. The one I have is sterling silver. Sometimes I see costume pieces show up years later that are duplicates of jewelry I purchased at a boutique. So many people like it! I am glad it's more available now so others can enjoy it too. :)
