TWEET! Birds! Nails Did

Birds are kinda freaky, especially when they all line up on a telephone wire and stare at you like they're about to attack. I actually was chased around for 5 minutes by a Canada goose once....so now I'm pretty wary of them. Despite the fact that Canadians are supposed to be all polite and friendly - let me tell you these geese are the antithesis of that. SO NASTY, and they bite! Seriously...I remember once they joked about opening a hunting season on the goose cause there was so many. I'd throw a rock, I SO WOULD!

Anyway, I fell in love with this mani from the lovely Babbling Brooke so that was my inspiration. For the base I used L.A. Colors in Sea Green which I actually found at the dollar store! Then to highlight it I used China Glaze for Audrey and White on White.

Then with Konad special polish in black I used Konad plate M66's cherry blossom design but made sure to take off any blossoms from the stamper. Then I mixed CG Liquid Leather and White on White to get a nice grey (I'm still waiting to buy Recycle...don't ask me why...I don't know, I want it now!! :'(  ).  Its all sealed with Seche Vite

I really like this mani and I was surprised at the end result because when I did the background it looked at first like I painted my nails blue and then a bird pooped on them :S . But it all came together with the branches and the birds :D
