As valentines day is around the corner, I decided to come up with some cute little love bird nail art, that I hope you all will love it as much as I do!
I was inspired to do this design by a card I saw on pinterest, and added my own little twist to it.
Let’s get started!
What I used:
White nail polish, Clear sparkly nail polish, Red acrylic paint, Black acrylic paint, Pink or White acrylic paint, Nail striper, and a Nail dotter. I’m using a the #2 nail dotter.
If you don’t have acrylic paint you can use nail polish. Acrylic paint will give you the opportunity to erase any mistakes you might make, and will you a slightly different look.
First start out by painting all of your nails white. Don’t worry about it being perfect.
Next paint all of your nails with your clear sparkly color.
Take your nail striper and paint a semi-thick black line going down the side of your thumb.
Add your branches by painting squiggly lines. Just make sure that you have two branches going in the direction you want to continue the nail art on your other nails.
Paint two squiggly lines going all the way across your index finger.
Add more branches to your index finger.
Continue the same process to your next finger.
When you get to your ring finger, I finished the second branch here, make one branch quite low and add a swoop.
Finish your branches onto your pinky nail.
Now for the bird. Take your nail dotter, with the small side, and make a small red dot above the branch on your ring finger.
Now take the large side of your nail dotter and make the body of your bird underneath your small dot, connecting to the branch.
Go back to your nail striper and add two small lines to the bottom of the body for the tail, and a small thin line to the head for a beak.
Repeat the same process for the pink bird. I put the beak going the opposite way of the red bird.
Ta-dah! Just clean up the polish on your skin, add a top coat, and you’re done!
Thank you so much for reading!
Until next time
