Flippin' the Birds


Hey all!!! Today's mani is inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds'. :-D For the accent nail I did the iconic Hitchcock profile graphic. :-)



A better view of the profile:



I used American Apparel Cotton as a base on all the bird nails, and American Apparel Hassid for the Hitchcock nail, as well as the birds.

I seriously can't get the Hitchcock intro music out of my head.

  7. You're cracking me up with that new black polish. I can see a lot of nails with black in them coming soon. You're doing a good job of advertising it and I think I'm going to have to go buy myself some now.

  15. Kasey- I am SOOO loving Hassid. I think of other designs to do, but then go back to an idea that involves Hassid. I think I'm hooked.

  27. awww misschievous totally copied this look :/

    ReplyDelete
  28. love the look. and misschievous did copy this completely. makes me like her less, but like you more!

    ReplyDelete
  29. When I commented on Misschievous's video about how she didn't actually design the look she deleted my comment. If I were you, I would be mad that she is pretty much claiming the look as her own.

    ReplyDelete
  30. To everyone who says MissChievous (Julia) copied off her Daily Nail's design:

    If you READ the description box below the video (which I highly doubt), you would see that she gives the Daily Nail credit for the nail look. She has had that disclaimer on that video since it was uploaded on June 03, 2010. She's also had that disclaimer on her blog post (dated June 03, 2010) since she uploaded that video. She did this nail look she was inspired to recreate it and some people learn by watching videos.

    She NEVER said that she came up with this design. She always gives credit when needed; she hates art theft as much as any artist does.

    Before you comment that someone else stole another person's idea/art/literature/words/etc/ , check the blog post/video/website post/author's comments/bibliography/etc BEFORE telling the original creator and accusing the "recreator" (for lack of a better term) of theft. In other words: read before you make an accusation (i.e. place blame of someone else). It's that easy.
