Love Birds: A Valentine’s Day Nail Art Tutorial

I hope you enjoy this cute nail design about two little birds who find love

Instructions:

  1. Paint your nails a cream color.
  2. Use the back of a make-up brush to paint a dot on your thumb.
  3. Create the tail feathers using three separate swipes from your nail polish brush.
  4. Use the back of a push pin (or a dotting tool) to create a black dot for the eye and a stripper to create the legs.
  5. Dip a push pin in white and create two small dots (these will be the wings) and carefully?place a white dot on the black dot for the eye.
  6. Pick up the bird’s main color (here it’s green) with the same push pin and carefully place on top of the white, leaving a little white showing (yay! wings!). Don’t forget to add a small black dot on the eye for an iris.
  7. Finish off the bird with a little yellow beak and a heart.
  8. Repeat steps 1-7 for the bird’s mate. Notice the green bird’s hearts are pink and the pink bird’s hearts are green (they love each other!)
  9. For the rest of your fingers, show the bird’s flight path using a striping nail art brush and strategically place a couple of hearts.
  10. Repeat with the other color.
