Birdcage under Water

My little sister once gave me a lovely decorative birdcage, and I use it to house four bottles of nail polishes. If there's is a nail art that I've always wanted to try, it's definitely the design of a birdcage. As I mentioned before, drawing is not my thing. So, I was hoping that I would find a nail art sticker of it someday. That day has finally come, I found a water decal on eBay with a bird cage hanging on a branch with birds in and around it:
I used two coats of Essie Ballet Slippers, a milky pink sheer polish. The accent nail has an extra coat of Essence Frosted Campaign from the TE Crystalliced.
The water decals are very easy to use. Just cut out the design and soak that piece of paper in water for a few seconds. The transparent film with the design will separate from the paper sheet and you can place it on the nails as you like. The size of this design was actually a bit bigger than my nail, so I had to chop off a part of the branch. 
What design have you always wanted to try?

Have a great weekend!
