A Tribute to all House Adon Readers:
This quick and easy Flamingo Nail Art tutorial is perfect for this summer. I love the fact that the flamingos are making a comeback. Yip a comeback! Remember the kinda tacky flamingo lawn ornament that became super popular in the late 50’s early 60’s? Especially in the US? That’s what used to pop in my mind every time I thought about flamingo’s. Not anymore honey! Its 2016 and flamingos are here with a bang! I’m talking fashion, party themes, accessories, nail art designs, sugar cookies, Christmas decorations, its so wild! There’re everywhere, and I’m loving it! Just like I’m loving you guys, coming from all walks of life and everywhere imaginable. As House Adon builds momentum and I see different readers popping up from all over the place, I just wanted to say thank you for the shares, the reads, the likes and the love. This one’s for you!
As easy as 1,2,3…4,5,6:
- Start with your blank canvas of course. I used a super light mint green. White works too. My only suggestion is to use a light colour here.
- I like to start with the head and body, this really helps make sure you’re making use of your nail bed space correctly. Think of flower petals. One underneath the other.
- Now it’s connect-the-dots, but in a snake like ‘s’ motion. Also before dong this think about which way you want your flamingo to face. I wanted each to look like they were facing each other.
- Appropriate step number, because for this step you need to think of the number 4. Start with the straight leg first, then the curved leg. Also curve the tip of the curved leg ever so slightly, to make the leg look a bit more realistic.
- For the beak I used a lighter pink, again you want to curve the tip of the beak and don’t be scared to make it long.
- Now you just need to finish up with some black on the tip of the beak with a little black dot for the eye.
There you go! Flamingo nails done and dusted. I added some palm trees just to add a little to the tropical vibe I was going for. Feel free to add any accent you like.
