Happy Manicure Monday - this week I am doing some bright and fun Flamingo nail art!

I love how bright and fun these are! The Flamingos are not my best nail art, but they turned out decent! 
Here is a look at the products I used for this week's Manicure:
ceramic glaze surfs up sally hanse fuchsia power
-Ceramic Glaze "Surf's Up"
-Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear "White On"
-Sally Hansen "Fuchsia Power" (dark pink)
-Sally Hansen "Bubblegum Pink" (light pink)
-Wet n Wild "Black Creme" 
-Formula X nail cleanser, base coat and top coat
-nail dotting tool and nail art brush
To do the nail art start with nail cleanser, base coat and 2 coats of base polish (I used a fun bright colour but you can use any colour you like!)

Here are the steps I followed for the nail art:

  • Use a nail art brush and light pink to create a half-circle on the tip of nail
  • Use the nail art brush and the dark pink, create a line above the half circle
  • Then extend the dark pink into a curved shape to create a head and neck
  • Use nail art brush and black to create a rounded beak and a little bit of white polish for a line above the beak
  • Use a dotting tool to create a white dot, and place a smaller black dot in the middle
Let dry very well and finish with a top coat! 

Here is a closer look at my Flamingos:

Again, up close it is not the prettiest but I'm showing you as close as you can get - I'm actually quite happy with the nail art as most people see it closer to the first picture!
