Summer Challenge Day 14: Flowers
Flowers! A very popular nail decoration. My problem is, that I’m not very good at freehanding them. But I know that practice makes better, so I went for freehanded flowers anyway. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! :D
I wanted to use some of my new Flormar polishes that Aylin sent me, so I chose three. I really like Flormars: The formula is good, the pigmentation is excellent and the drying time is fine. The only thing I don’t like so much about them is that they seem to be very difficult to photograph.
I started out with Flormar 444, a bright neon pink from their spring & summer 2012 collection. It looked pretty cool after the first coat, and even better after the second.
The picture is not colour accurate, but it was the best I could do. It doesn’t have a coral tone to it in real life.
Two coats, no top coat:
Then I applied a coat of Flormar 392, which is holographic microglitter in a clear base. It’s like China Glaze’s Fairy Dust x 100! And it dries up completely smooth, no grittiness at all. I love it!
Here’s one coat over the pink:
I tried to photograph the holographic effect for you, but the sun wasn’t in the mood to put his hat on and come out to play today, so this is the best I could do:
Now for the flowers: I chose Flormar 448, a deep purple crème, also from the spring & summer collection 2012, and dotted two flowers on each nail. I sealed it all up with a coat of Poshé top coat, and the mani was finished:
That was my flowery mani for today. I hope you enjoyed the show :D
