Today I have some fun tropical nail art for you! I found this really cute image of a toucan and decided to incorporate it into a nail art design.
I freehanded the majority of the design, but I decided to also include some stamping as well! I don't stamp often, but I really should do it more so that I can work on perfecting my technique.
The base colour for this design is OPI Did It On 'Em from the Nicki Minaj Collection. I thought this was a good tropical-looking shade to set the tone of this manicure.
The colours I used to freehand the toucan and his branch include Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme, OPI Alpine Snow, China Glaze Foie Gras, China Glaze Lemon Fizz and China Glaze High Hopes
Finally, using China Glaze Starboard, I stamped the leaf image from BM15 on my thumb, ring and pinky finger nails.
Surprisingly, the toucan itself wasn't as hard to draw as I thought it was going to be. I just focused on one shape at a time (the body, the beak, etc) and before I knew it, it was complete!
So what do you guys think of my toucan design? I'm quite proud of this design, if I do say so myself!
