Tweety Bird Nail Art Tutorial – Chirp out Loud with Dior Acapulco

by xin on June 27, 2012

When I first saw Acapulco, which is one of four Dior Vernis from the Summer Mix collection, I felt like there was a calling.

Could it be the awesome yellow that I have been looking for? The quest for an awesome yellow has always been a challenge, I want something that is  really bright, easy to apply, and non-streaky.

Dior Apapuloo

Say hello to the Dior Acapuloo, and also Cosmo (from the same collection) on my ring finger.

From the bottle, it looks like a bright yellow, but when applied, the color turns slightly darker on my nails it’s mustardy yellow instead of the bright yellow.

The application was a breeze especially with the short bristle of the polish.

I applied 2 coats for full opacity.

Of course, how can I leave such pretty yellow blank? ;) Since I have done Spongebob before, another character which is all in yellow will be…tweety the bird!

Start with the eyes first with big drop of white, let dry, paint the blue, and black eye ball.

On my middle finger, I decided to give it a wink ;) winks actually.

Now, moving on to the mouth, it’s more challenging as there is no definite shape per se.

You could sketch it or you can paint it in 2 triangles.

Finally when the face features are done, using the tiniest brush you have, or nail art pen, sketch the lashes!

You can outline the eyes too if you are confident.  When all dry, paint a layer of top coat and you are good to go!

Overall, I am quite liking this Acapuloo with its user friendliness, easy to paint, and non streaky. The staying power is quite good, it’s been 4 days with laundry and dishes, and not much chipped.
However, I wish it were a much brighter yellow though. Do let me know if you come a cross a very bright yellow :D

Price: RM72

Availability: All Dior counters

Hope you like my tweety bird nails ;)

There is no way I can do nail art on myself so hats off to you!!! I’m loving Summer Mix nails. They’re very different from your usual corals for summer.
Your birds are really cute =)
