One of my favorite things about being in Nature are the songbirds. I decided to create a bluebird manicure as an homage to all the little birds I see and hear throughout the day. One of my favorite pleasures is to listen to birdcalls as I am walking. I will pause and look up for the singing or chatty bird. Sometimes they sing a little more when they see me looking.
I began the tone on tone manicure with BB Couture Blue Bahama. From fauxnad plate H30, I stamped the bird image using Konad pastel blue special polish. I placed pale blue gems for the wings. I added a blue flower and pearl to the end of each branch. The bird design coupled with the embellishments creates a vintage feel.
Blue Bahama was opaque in two coats. I added a third coat before stamping. This polish is beautiful! On seeing my nails, both my nieces requested manicures with Blue Bahama for their first day of high school. The blue with a hint of green makes me think of the Atlantic Ocean.
I am very pleased with how this manicure came together. Of all the nail art I have done, this look feels particularly expressive of my style. It makes me happy to have bluebirds on my nails. I hope these little birds bring joy to your day too.
Image plate H30 was sent to me for consideration. Additional nail art stamping plates are available for purchase at chez-delaney.com.
