Birds of Fall

I fell in love with nail art with tiny birds last winter and haven’t had nearly enough opportunities to explore the subject. So I inevitably chose birds for my fall look for #NailsWithIgFriends hosted by the lovely Neha (@nehabothra). These are more stylized so they’re not quite as dear to me as the birds in Mustard Birds, but I love the contrast of the soft grays against all the red duochrome. And also they still feel small. And I think that’s key for me. The small lives of songbirds, especially in fall and winter, just feels more sweet to me. I need to paint more nail art. Somehow…

I’m a sucker for that opal white gel. I haven’t yet used it more than plain white gel now, but give me time! It’s a bit harder to re-use because with a peel-off base underneath any separation from my nail shows so I get maybe 1-3 designs out of it instead of 4-5. It’s probably why I feel like I’ve done more with it. I’ve simply had to paint my nails with it more.

I love how bright the colors are when the design isn’t matte-ified, but it’s so pretty matte! I guess you’ll have to decide which you like best. Based on this one last photo. Because I’m stingy. LOL

Okay, okay. How about a shiny macro shot of just the background? Not so stingy now, eh?
