31DC2013: Day 14 Flowers

Press Sample Purchased by Me

Good Morning friends!

Today brings us to the 14th day of the challenge, and I think I have one of my favourite manicures yet to share with you! The prompt today is Flowers and I have known exactly what I wanted to do for this day ever since Emily and I decided we were going to redo the challenge! I was at my Grandma's house for a BBQ earlier this summer and she had the most fabulous floral napkins out, at the end of the night I asked her if I could take one and she said yes! So I have been keeping the napkin close by to recreate for this day. I'll show a picture of the napkin later in this post.



For these nails I started off with OPI My Vampire Is Buff my go to nude polish. Then I went at it with my smallest cut down nail art brush to create the flowers and leaves! All the polishes I used will be listed below. Since this was a fairly complex design I won't get into specific details about how I did it other than I looked at the napkin and then tried my best to scale the pattern down to fit on my nails!



The polishes used for these are are as follows,
Cult Nails Evil Queen
Billie Zinfandel
China Glaze Def Defying
OPI Congeniality is My Middle Name
OPI A-Piers To Be Tan
Joe Fresh Caramel
I did a variety of mixing these polishes in different combinations to get the exact shade I wanted! Here is a picture of my nails with the napkin!



I seriously love these and never ever want to take them off! I think it is up there with some of the best freehand work that I've done and I'm super proud :) What do you think of my floral nails?!

Be sure to head over to The Lacquerologist to see what Emily has come up with for Flowers! Also be sure to enter our giveaway!!
