I Keep Telling You, This Isn't A Few Birds'!

These are gulls, crows, swifts...!
-Quote from Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds

My boyfriend gave me the idea to do a Hitchcock inspired mani when I first started doing Halloween themed manis. I forgot about it completely until I opened up my idea notebook and saw it written down.

Alfred Hitchcock is one of my favorite directors ever. I have seen each one of his movies. He always intrigued me. My aunt told me of how she saw the movie on opening day in 1965 and how since that day she has been scared of birds. It's funny really because my family lives in New York for a short time in the 60s, which is home of the pigeons!

Doing the crow was a lot of fun. 
I planned on doing different birds but during the middle of the mani I felt ill.
So I rushed through the rest.

I hope you all enjoy this mani!
Until tomorrow my pretties!!
