Today marks the first week completed of the 31 Day Challenge! I can already see this whole month flying by just as fast as the first week has and I'm looking forward to coming up with the rest of the prompts! Today's theme is black and white. Black and white are the two most common colours that I use in my nail art and are the only two bottles that I have ever run out of multiple times. I've had the idea for today's nails jotted down for a few months, but for some reason I always thought that people had already done it and it wasn't creative! After some extensive googling I think that I'm being creative so here are my birds flying away nails!
I have always loved images of birds flying away from a leafless trees, this was the image that I had pinned a long time ago, of course it wasn't referenced properly so here is the image.
For this black and white manicure I started off with 2 coats of my favourite Cult Nails Tempest and added a coat of Seche Vite to give a smooth surface for nail art as I knew I wanted to wear these for as long as possible.
Once the Seche had dried I went at my nails with my smallest cut down nail art brush and Wet n Wild Black Creme. I had started by creating a random outline of the trees and then going back and adding the branches and the birds on the rest of my nails.
Overall I am really pleased with how these came out! I'm glad I finally got around to doing these nails and they turned out as well as I had sketched them! :)
