1. Paint the nail with a white pearl polish. Using turquoise paint, draw an upside-down water droplet shape to create the body of the bird. Paint two little lines for tail feathers and add a couple of sprigs of grass at the bottom.


2. Paint a yellow half of an egg shape to create the umbrella. Add little hearts around the top and sides. Use orange paint to make the beak. Paint two dots of baby pink to make cheeks.


3. Add orange dots to the umbrella. Outline everything with black paint, adding eyes, arms, and legs to complete the look. Seal with a clear top coat.
