Ever have one of those days where you drop your nail polish brush and get polish on your pants and your camera and then find out that you smudged your nails in the process of trying to keep the brush from falling? Yeah, that was me when I was trying to do this manicure. I think I must be more burned out than I thought I was!
In any case, I love springtime because of all the beautiful flowers everywhere. It started with seeing daffodils sprout up all over the place, but now the trees are also in full bloom. It’s great that I have so many plates of floral patterns to match!
I decided to use plate BPL-029 from Born Pretty Store for this manicure.
I wanted to get away with stamping the flowers on my nails without having to color in anything, but I wouldn’t have had a nice enough contrast in the design, so I had to make nail decals to color in the petals with white polish.
For the final step, I took advantage of my clear stamper to add green stamping polish over the stems and leaves of the pattern.
I know it wasn’t a perfect transfer, but it created a bit of a 3D effect as one of my friends pointed out. Besides, how gorgeous does that look? The contrasting white and green polish over the orange and yellow really makes the flowers and leaves stand out.
I’m still trying to find time to finish my taxes, but I hope to have more posts up soon! One day at a time for me for now.
