Family Tree

Hey everyone! Today I have, sort of an inspirational nail art, for you guys. I've had this specific picture saved for a while now, ever since I saw it on Etsy. It was so cute how the two birds were looking at each other on the tree. It reminded me of that little teasing song, the kids in school will be singing, whenever you had crush on someone. 
I even loved how the bottom tree trunk had all the assorted splatters. Which I wanted to incorporated on the design. I thought it will make the design look different and pop. Especially the dotted leaves, love dotticures! ;)
I knew by looking at the photo (here), I was not going to fit in the large tree, since my nails are short. I think that's the only disadvantage for short nail girls. I started off with two coats of OPI Alpine Snow and on two nails Essie Cocktails &Coco. For the branches, I used a medium length stripping brush, with Essie Cocktails & Coco
I really want the branches to look at all perfect. So I just drew various of branches on either sides. I most importantly left some space on the ring finger, for the two birds. I add the dots, using a dotting tool, with a mixture of Bettina Nail Enamel Resort Mojito and OPI Alpine Snow. 
For the birds, I used Essie Resort Fling and the splatters with OPI Alpine Snow. Lasly, I sealed the design with Duri- Super Fast Dry Through Top Coat, that's it! Overall, I really loved how these turned out. This was really cute and fun design to do. I couldn't stop looking at the birds! 
Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
