Week 19: Floral Mani

Again, not what is supposed to be done today, but I'm out of town again! I'm a busy bee!! In the spirit of trying to catch up, here's another weekly challenge that I did recently.

I found this design on a site I love, and ya'll may know it already - Simply Rins.

Product List:
  • Essence Wanna Be My Sunshine (shimmery lemon yellow)
  • Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure (flakies)
  • OPI Be A Dahlia Won't You (hot pink foil/glass fleck)
  • White Acrylic Paint

Based on Simply Rins' design seen here. She also has a great photo tutorial in that post. Hers is, of course, 1000x time better than mine, but it was the inspiration nonetheless!

Hope you like!

    1. Me too! She's fantastic. Her mani's are always flawless. So jealous. But thanks! I thought about adding another coat of flakie on top to make everything shimmer but then I decided the flowers popped a little more without it.
