Today I have another set of contest nails, this time for the floral themed contest hosted by Kayla Shevonne to celebrate her blog's 1 million views. You read that right, a million. Pretty awesome right?
I am not normally a flowery kind of girl, so I knew if I did this it would have to be something not exactly... well, flowery and girly. I'm secretly jealous of those of you who can wear stuff like that. And now it isn't a secret. Oops. Anyhow, I found my inspiration for this look from this adorable apron on Modcloth. (My best friend would be so proud of me for window shopping there :P) Here's a view of the pattern in case it sells and you can't see the link. Or I did it wrong. Either way, I PLANNED AHEAD! You're welcome.
- Sally Hansen Salon Manicure base coat / Seche Vite top coat
- Essie Master Plan
- Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby
- Wet n Wild Sunny Side Up
This was all done freehand with a small paintbrush and normal polish. Not quite how I hoped it would turn out but eh, I had fun playing and that's what counts right? Right. I thought that a white base like the apron would have been a little too bright for me to stand so I went with a gray base instead. I like it but I will admit to being curious, I kinda wished I tried it on a test nail at least. Lesson learned. All in all I don't feel like it's my best but I suck at flowery anything so good enough lol. What kind of style do you guys hate to do?
