14 of 31: Flower Nails
Howdy! As usual, I'm running late with this post. Today's challenge is Flower nails and, frankly, I was not excited about it. I'm not really a flower-y girl. So, I thought and I thought and I thought about what to do. Then I started googling photos and found this one. Poppies are one of my favorite flowers and I love the drama of the color. Here's my version:
This turned out so fabulous that I'm almost sad I'm not at work tomorrow to get some feedback...almost sad, but not really :) I started here with 2 coats of Wet 'n' Wild's Wild Shine in French White Creme. Using a striper brush, I painted the flower outlines and seed pods onto my accent nail. After that, I used acrylic paint to detail some flowers. I also used the paint in a one-stroke technique to do the larger flowers on the rest of my nails. Drama, drama, drama! And in a good way! Here's another look:
So, again, the 31 Day Manicure Challenge pushes me to come up with something out of nothing! Thanks so much for reading and I hope you'll come check out my delicately printed nails tomorrow!
