Dry Brush Flamingos for Clairestelle8 ft. MoYou London Tropical

Hello Readers!

Today's post is for the #clairestelle8challenge over on instagram, and today's prompt is "dry brush". I decided to try to pair dry brushing with flamingos, since flamingos have some subtle texture and color variation on their feathers I thought I could use dry brushing to try to portray that.

Also, flamingos are fun!

I kept my colors pretty simple; I thought gray would be a good compliment to the pink of the flamingos. For my dry brushed nail, I started with "Let's Playa" and added the dry brushing with "Peaches and Cream" and then "Cool Cadet." I also stamped over the white nails with "Let's Playa".

Two of my flamingo images came from this MoYou London "Tropical" plate- my larger flamingo head as well as the smallest solid images.

My group of flamingos on my middle finger comes from this MoYou London "Animal" plate. At first I though I would use the large flamingo from this plate on the mani, but  I ended up liking the one from the "Tropical" plate better for it.

Finally, I used an image from this MoYou London "Pro" collection plate for the background behind my large flamingo image. I just figured he would benefit from a little bit of texture behind him, and this plate is great for adding that.


  1. Great design in lovely colours :)

  2. Another gorgeous mani, I love the soft colour palette of these flamingos and think the dry brush looks fab as a background to this design.
