Nails of the Week #58: Flower Nails

Honestly even I'm impressed with myself over these! Seasonally incorrect but I was inspired to test this pattern out so here we are. It's interesting that my right hand turned out better than my left hand since that's never the case but maybe because I'm a lot careful since I know it will be harder to do and that's why. I actually started this out intending on doing a pond manicure, where it's like a jelly sandwich except nail art instead of glitter, but I was so blown away by how nice I was able to do the flowers that I decided to just leave it alone this time around. Anyways, let's get into the specifics of this adorable flower manicure I was able to pull off.

So the base coat is Essie in Jamaica Me Crazy. This is a great fuchsia with a shimmer on top. The white is my handy Essie in Private Weekend and I used a dotting tool to draw little flowers on three of my nails. It seemed like overkill to do all five nails so this is a much more acceptable pattern especially since at this point it's clearly fall, borderline winter here. I love everything about this and feel like even the messy parts where the petals sort of bled together adds to the overall effect. It makes the design very unique and imperfect. I'll definitely be doing this more and experimenting with different colors!
