This week in the She Who Does Nail Art Challenges group on Facebook (come join us!), the theme is Birds.
While trying to decide what to decorate my nails with for this theme, I scoured my stamping plates and thought about hand painting like birds in a cage, but when I started thinking about the more obscure birds and finally it was down to either flamingos or penguins!
Flamingos it was!
I’ve seen these style of flamingo nails on a few blogs before, but I just couldn’t help recreating them myself!
I started by painting my nails with three coats of Sinful Colors Cinderella (a review to follow later in the week) which is a gorgeous pale blue with a pink shimmer to it. I then used a small paintbrush to paint on the head, neck and body of the flamingos using Barry M Bright Pink. Next I used the same small paintbrush and Angelica Marshmallow to paint the wing of the flamingos. I used a tiny paintbrush and Barry M Matt White to paint the white bit of the beak and then the same white polish with a medium sized dotting tool to create the whites of the eyes. Finally I used Nails Inc Black Taxi with a small dotting tool to finish the eyes, and the same black polish with a tiny paintbrush to paint the beak.
What do you think? I love these guys!
I can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with for birds this week!
