I am been having a lot of fun giving myself manicures lately, and here is one I did yesterday.
I wanted to do an impressionist floral pattern, and I really like how it turned out.
It reminds me of vintage bed sheets from the 70's. And that makes me happy.
|Start with a coat of green, my green is actually a bit lighter than this, as you can see in some of the other pictures.|
|Brush on a smudgy flower shape in the first color; I used hot pink. I did 2-3 flowers for each color, letting each layer dry before moving onto the next. Overlapping flowers is good!|
|Add the next layer of color, I think yellow is essential for a vintage look.|
|I then added two more layers of flowers, in candy apple red and a sparkly teal.|
|This is the step that will make the flowers pop. Use a toothpick to place tiny back and white dots in the middle of some of the flowers.|
|There you go! It took me about 45 minutes to do these because of the wait times. Don't worry about the flowers being imperfect, I think it's part of the look!|
