Good morning guys!

Hopefully your Saturday is off to a great start, and if it’s not maybe this nail art will cheer you up! I never posted my final whimsy look for this past week’s Digit-al Dozen theme, so that’s what I have to share with you guys today.

Onto the nails!

Here’s what I used:

Swirls, birds, and weird colors? That’s whimsy, right? Works for me haha! This design is my recreation of Karla Gerard‘s Branch Birds painting.

  1. Start by applying three (?) coats of Sons Of Adam.
  2. Then using a makeup sponge, dab on the other three polish colors.
  3. Once the base is dry, paint on the design using a detail brush and acrylic paint. I started by painting the birds first, and then filling in the branches around them. Once the branches were complete, I went back and added the polka dots.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a layer of Wax That…

This is by far my favorite look out of everything I painted this week! I’m not really sure why, but the whole look is kind of fun and I was happy with how the line work came out. This was definitely a tough DD week, but it was nice to push myself to actually do complex nail art which I feel like I haven’t been doing a lot of lately. What did you guys think of this theme? Did you have a favorite look? Let me know below!
