Whimsical Summer Scene (Flowers and Birds)

Oh hey there you wonderful person!! Hope this Monday has treated you well :) I've been meaning to get this post up earlier, but revision and the piano have been getting in the way. Speaking of the piano, I have been rocking the "shorties" as of late, and it's not because I want to (I love my long nails) but because I have to sacrifice my nails to the piano (as I have a piano exam), not literally, it's not like my piano eats my nails or anything :P Today I have some fun floral nails, I was inspired by this picture of cute flowers and birds. It really is a fun picture.

Oh man, the little birds are my favourite, they're so cute!! The little dots also add a lot too. This design was really enjoyable to paint as I started with the outline and it was kind of like colouring in a picture. What can I say I'm a child at heart (probably also literally)!

I started the outline in Lovely Me:Ex - Black (surprise surprise), my base was The Face Shop - GR501 and coloured in!!
Pink: Barry M - Fuchsia
Blue: Color Club - Sky High
Purple: OPI - Plum And Get It
Peach: w7 - Linen
White: Lovely Me:Ex - White
I did the dots with a bobby pin, and I freehanded everything else (freehanding's literally all I can do). I finished with the Color Club topcoat to smooth everything out.

This design really is my depiction of fun (which I am all about), oo I really like the speckles on the birds too. I can imagine frolicking around fields of flowers with birds twittering around me... Kind of. I should have a nice post up on Thursday after some exams, should be good. Thank you very much for reading and I hope you have an absolutely fantanbulous day!!! :)
