Hello all! I’ve been in a conference in Oxford for the past few days, so I almost completely forgot that I had to do some ‘spring flowers’ nail art for the NAIL April challenge! But I remembered just in time, and churned out something real quick.
I saw some half-moon flowers on Adventures in Acetone not too long ago, and I thought it was a fun idea. So I took that idea and ran with it. The ‘daisy’ was made with a white Sally Hansen striper, Revlon Parfumerie Sunlit Grass, Maybelline Color Show Electric Yellow, and Essie Limo-scene. On the other nails I used NerdLacquer TDBSLWCHSHITD (The Dwarf Breathes So Loud We Could Have Shot Him In The Dark), a shimmery lime (not neon) green with different sizes of glitter in gold, white, green, and silver. It was a little thin, but I really like how pretty it is. It’s a great shade of green, in my opinion.
I’m not thrilled with the outcome here, but I don’t dislike it either. I’m probably so indifferent because it’s a flower. I don’t like flowers on my nails, and the only flower-related nail art I’ve actually done and really been proud of was when I did Flower from Bambi for the 31DC last July. I wish that TDBSLWCHSHITD would have turned out better in the photos too, because it makes the mani look so much better in person. The shimmer in that polish is amazing!
There’s only one prompt left in the NAIL April challenge, but since that runs until May 3rd, my next posts will be Challenge Your Nail Art’s April challenge, running from the 28th-30th. The theme this month is ‘All Things Blue’ so it should be fun!
