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. 😀
