Yesterday I was thinking about what I wanted to do with my nails. I knew I wanted to use the new teal polish I bought from Sam’s Beauty, but I wasn’t sure about the accent nail. Then I thought about parrots and decided I wanted to feature the colors of a scarlet macaw on my accent nail.
Of course I didn’t know it was called a scarlet macaw until I looked for a picture to add here, but I knew what it looked like in my mind’s eye, lol!
Since I have a trillion bottles of nail polish, I quickly looked in my stash and came up with the following: Essie “Strut Your Stuff”, Essie “Geranium”, OPI “I Just Can’t Cope Acabana, and Savina “French White”
I used a cute bow nail stencil from What’s Up Nails to add a little accent. I had considered a more involved stencil but realized it would cover up most of the design.
This is what I came up with! I had to continue the gradient/ombre trend because it’s just SOOO cute!
I kinda think it looks like a popsicle I used to eat as a kid. I can’t remember the name right now. What do you think of the colors? Let me know in the comments!
