Nails of the Week #79: Awesome Blossoms

I'm running out of flower puns, but at the same time I really can't stop with the flower manicures because it's finally something I mastered. I think it's also safe to say something finally clicked and I pretty much mastered my base coat application, or at least the last few ones have been on point. I'm very proud. Random though, my hands are extremely dry lately despite my constant application of hand cream and it's especially painful after a manicure session even though I usually wait a day between taking off the old polish and applying the new stuff. Hmm.

This time around I used the always lovely Essie in Bikini So Teeny for the periwinkle base and my trusty Color Club Duo Pen in White to draw on the little flowers. Originally I wanted to add some gold glitter to the centers but then I realized I did some flowers real tiny and didn't want to go digging for some dotting tools so I pulled out my Color Club Duo Pen in Black to dot the centers and I actually love how it turned out. Very clean and fun plus easy to do! It takes longer waiting for all the thin coats of base color to dry than to actually draw on the flowers and since it's just little dots that don't exactly need to be precise even my shaking left hand can handle doing it without any help.
