Day 14 of Chalkboard Nails’ Challenge is FLOWERS and I’ve got some brown cherry blossom nails for ya! I’ll be honest with you… I don’t really like how these nails came out. I don’t like to be negative… but it is what it is. And I realized that when I don’t like one of my designs I usually only post one pic. So here it is….
I’m wearing two coats of a cream brown called Nirvana by Sinful Colors. A few months back you may remember me whining about how I didn’t have any basic brown polishes… well, now I have one! I think Nirvana should come in handy for nail art this fall and winter. 🙂 For my floral design I painted some branches using Orly Nite Owl. I wish I used a dark polish for the branches. (On this old AriZona Green Tea mani I made the branches black and they looked amazing!) The pink flowers are China Glaze Dance Baby and Orly Kiss the Bride. I used a toothpick to make black dots in the middle of the blossoms, but the dots came out much bigger than expected (oopsy)! I topped it off with seche vite and there you go! These aren’t that fantastical, but they were quick to do, so that’s a bonus. 😀

no need to be negative, these look lovely! 🙂 plus I really like the base colour
I appreciate that, thanks! 😀
Looks great to me! Like, cherry blossom at night 🙂
I think they look lovely!!
Thank you very much ❤
I love these. So much so that i put them on my pinterest page to try out the design myself. The colors work so well together and I love pink and brown.
That’s so nice, thanks! And yes, I love pink and brown too! 🙂
I really liked it, especially the colors you’ve combined! The only thing I can think of improvement would have been to double the flower amounts, like a cherry blossom tree or something like that 😀
yeah, more flowers can’t hurt 🙂 and thanks!
Gorgeous, love the pink and brown combo:)
Thnx Marthe ! 😀
I love them !!! I think the brown background with the flowers is stunning !!! Great job, you are so talented !!! I could never paint flowers on my own nails, that is just amazing to me !! Do you do any painting outside of nails ? You are very good at it !!!

Yay for getting a brown! And what is wrong with your eyes? I think it looks lovely!
yes- I must need my eyes checked. i have bare nails right now and i’m looking back at this design and it looks kinda nice. teeheehee
Don’t be hard on yourself! I think these came out really nice. We are always hardest on ourselves. Props to you for participating in such a hardcore challenge! Beautiful nails as always!
thank you, Cynthia. you’re right, we are hard on ourselves. it’s so stupid, but i guess that pushes us to be better? or depressed and down on ourselves. one of the two! lol
