The Digit-al Dozen does Animal Week: I may not be a smart bird, but I know what love is!

The Digit-al Dozen themed weeks comes around quickly don't they? This week we are all doing animal inspired manicures. I am already really far behind with prepping these so hopefully I can get them all up in time! But to make up for it i've just done MY BEST NAIL ART EVER! I am so in love with this manicure is is cute and fun and sums up why I love nail art!

 That's right a Flamingo! There is also some random tribal patterns going on too. 

The quote in the title is what inspired this manicure and it comes from one of my favourite films; Gnomeo and Juliet and the starring pink wonder that is Featherstone!

If you haven't seen that film you really should! I love it. It's also a great way to introduce kids to Shakespeare (which I am all for!!)

So now down to how this manicure was created. This started life as two coats of Barry M Blue Moon a light almost white vintage blue. I then used Barry M Bright Pink to create my designs using a nail art brush and a dotting tool. These photos really don't give a good sense of scale. My nails are really tiny so this is actually incredibly cute on such tiny nails!

I love the contrast of the bright pink against the blue, I think this is such a summery manicure and that little bird is just too adorable for words!

As normal there is some amazing talent in the Digit-al Dozen so check them all out too! Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with more animal manicures!
