Nail Art: Angry Birds ... Again

A few days ago, I was interviewed for a nail art feature on one of the country's top television networks. It was 2 days after I came home from an out of town trip. They requested a demo for the Angry Birds nail art design I did last January. But due to a fever and unforeseen circumstances, I wasn't able to do the requested demo on my nails.

When I recovered, I decided to recreate my Angry Birds nail design and I hope this post serves as an apology to the understanding and patient people of this television network.

You see, I went down with a bad fever the night before the shoot. It was scheduled before lunch. I woke up really early that day and struggled to do my nails. I wanted to reschedule but I knew I would be creating a huge hassle on the organizers.

After taking a quick shower, I realized I ruined most of my nails. Naturally, I didn't want a national television show capturing my nails looking unsatisfactory. I have always challenged myself to always come up with neat designs. This will NOT be an exemption. And so, I removed everything and started all over.

This is me doing some nail designs on a lovely model for the feature.

By the time the TV crew came, my nails were hardly ready. Luckily, they brought with them a model to whom I can demonstrate my nail designs to. It would be less time consuming that way since I find it harder to paint nail designs on my own nails compared to if I will be doing it to another.

I was shaking a little as I wasn't used to being filmed while working. I was asked to create 5 different Halloween nail designs on one hand and 5 different Christmas nail art on the other hand. I included some of my favorite designs.

Anyway, onto the nails! This is my second attempt to create an Angry Birds nail art design. The most distinctive difference are the outlines that I added to make the birds ... and the pigs more prominent. Also, I used nail polishes for painting the first one while I used acrylic paints on the latter.

It's a coincidence how the nasty pigs are all on one side
and the birds on the other.

Base color is 2 coats of Orly Pure Porcelain.

I freehand painted more pigs this time and eliminated the slingshot. I figured it would look more interesting to have more of those green pigs visible. Otherwise, our angry birds would not be able to have enough pigs to vent out their anger.

How did you like this second attempt of Angry Birds nail art compared to the previous one? I had most fun painting the pigs.

I deliberately didn't include more details regarding the television feature of my nail art as I still need to receive information on the schedule of its airing. I will surely let all of you know when I get more details. For the meantime, I'd like to say thank you to all of you who keeps supporting my nail designs and to my family whose always behind my every endeavor.

  4. Hi, CherrySue!
    An accent nail of the red bird is a wonderful idea! That's my favorite Angry Bird! Would you consider having one of the green pigs as accent nail?

    Hi, Soraya!
    Thank you! I just wanted to see if I improved as a nail artist from the previous Angry Birds nail art I did back in January. And I wanted to make up for not being able to demo it for the media crew.

    Hi, misaya!
    That's sweet, thanks!

    Hi, Alexisaurus!

  10. Hi, Kejal!
    It has been a year since I started freehand nail painting and I'm really practicing. Thank you for the kind words. :)

    Hi, istarh!
    I think this version of Angry Birds nail art looks better than my previous one, too. Thanks for saying that the outlines made a good difference. :)

    Hi, Maki!
    I didn't finish the game but I love it too! Isn't that ironic? I still need to own an android phone or an apple to finish it. I'm happy you liked the nail art. :)

    Hi, nail crazy!
    I love the green pigs too! Even though they are thieves! Haha! Hopefully the network will upload the feature online so I can show all of you how nervous I was during the shoot!

  11. Hi, friends!
    The nail art feature will be aired tonight at Saksi, GMA 7 at 11pm! Please don't laugh at my nervousness! :)

  12. I wish I could watch you... Sounds so cool! Love this nail art!!

  13. This is cool. I think this is better than the first one. :)

    I'm from the Philippines, and would loooove to watch you on that show you were telling about. Unfortunately, I'm too late now. :( Is there any other way that we can watch that episode? Online perhaps?

    The video is in Tagalog. But I'll embed the video here on the site just in case some of my international friends would still like to watch it regardless. :)

    Thanks! I think so, too. Watch out for the next post. I'll include the video footage of the nail segment. :)
