Hey ladies!! Here are my BIRD themed nails for our April Nail Art Ideas Linkup!
It took me around two hrs just to get the pics ready to post. Ughh- I have been having mega computer problems with the new desktop I bought. I purposely got windows 7 on it, even though at the time win8 was brand new. Well, that pc would not connect to the internet. It was so frustrating!!! We tried every troubleshooting thing possible, and even shipped the pc back to HP twice, yup, TWICE, and they kept sending it back unfixed. WTF! After arguing with them for months we finally got a newer desktop the other day, which works!!!!!!!!! Holy crap. The internet. Thank God. I feel bad, because I know they will probably re-furbish it and sell it to some other poor soul who will never be able to get it connected to the web either. Regardless, I’m glad that lemon is out of our hands. But now, I’m having a hell of a time adjusting to windows 8 on the new machine. Navigation is weird and I hate the whole app thing. Many programs try to open as apps and the functionality is limited and sucky. I know what I want to do, but don’t know what to click to make it happen. I had to watch a damn youtube video the other nite just to figure out how to shut the desktop down! Hopefully I can get the hang of it. If you have any windows 8 tips, please let me know!
Back to the nail art….I’m wearing a grey holo as my base color. It’s called Weng Weng from Bobbie brand- I will have to post swatches soon since it really deserves it’s own 5 minutes of fame. Then I made some diy birdcage decals using white konad polish and BM-407 stamping plate. I usually make my decals on plastic baggies, but this time I left the stamp right on my MoYou stamper, then colored the white birdcage in with a detail brush and Essie Butler Please. Then I covered the stamp with seche vite. It dried pretty quick, then I peeled it off the stamper and applied it to my grey nail. Awesome. I will definitely be doing this again. I feel a tutorial coming on. Some of my other nails are decorated with some blue rhinestones and one of my favorite glitter toppers- Lights Of Emerald City by OPI.
You should try a bird themed manicure too! Here are the other nails from the april linkup–

Good idea the bird in a cage 😉
notes on windows 8…get a mac :-p
I’ve never really used a mac so I’d be just as lost i bet lol
These look great!
I want to try that decal trick now! Looks awesome. My hubby has Windows 8 on his laptop and he hates it too. Know exactly what you mean about trying to turn the damn thing off!
I hope i get used to it. Did your hubbie? But since i use windows xp at work and then 8 at home.. i might be eternally confused
He hasn’t He has Windows 7 at work so he transitions back and forth too. 8 is constantly doing weird things he doesn’t want it to. The best one is when it randomly gives us a pop up saying “you’ve achieved the goal by using eco-mode!”. No idea how we’re doing that!
That sounds dumb!
Thanks girl !
Love the nails!! Sorry I can’t help I’m a Mac girl!
