Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds nails






These nails were inspired by one of my favorite nail blogs, The Daily Nail, and show an Alfred Hitchcock design from his famous 1963 movie "The Birds". You know that creepy scene where the kids are running out of the schoolyard and the black crows attack? Yeah, these nails kind of remind me of that scene.



And since some people may not be familiar with Hitchcock's films this is the profile image which is often seen during the credits.


I hope you enjoy it and try out this nail design. All you need is white and black polish, some brushes, and some time on your hands...literally!

  4. Love The Daily Nail, she is awesome! And I love this look too... if you skipped the Hitchcock nail and did it on a blue base it would look cute too!
