The talented 17 year old(!) Mirelle at nailpolishlives has made a gorgeous flamingo nailart, so I wanted to try it out as well. I think hers came out better than mine but fun showing mine anyhow of cause. ;)
I started of with Kleancolor - Pastel blue as a background. After it had dried I used a thin nail art brush (bought from ebay) and painted the bird with Kleancolor - Neon pink and the wings with Kleancolor - Pastel pink. When looking at the result I thought that the color difference was to big between them so I grabbed a pink sheer shimmer nail art polish from Sure Promise which made the darker pink lighter and the light pink darker. It also added a shimmer to it which I think came out great in the sunnier pictures. The white dots are made with dotting tool and Kleancolor - White and the black beaks and the black in the eys are Gabrini Elegant.
Worth mentioning is that for example Kleancolor - Neon pink is a one-coater if being gentle and using their brush. However I noticed using my nail art brush (that probably was too stiff) forced me to paint two coats.
In the sun the shimmer really showed which I liked.
