Good morning polished world! Happy Sunday. Goodness, another Sunday. Where did the weekend go?? I feel like there aren't enough hours in the days anymore. Time needs to slow down!
Well, Spring is in the air, and I'm not upset that winter months flew by. Now that it's Spring, I've been addicting to floral designs. I have had to stop myself and remember there are other types of manicures other than floral ones!
Today I am sharing with you a purple floral design I did a few weeks ago. I want to call them roses, but they kind of look more like carnations. Regardless, I love them.
Let's take a look!
- Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
- OPI - You're Such a Budapest
- NYC New York Color - Jacaranda Flower
- FingerPaints - Grassy Knoll
- Zoya - Josie
See how they kind of look like carnations and not roses? I think that is because of the complete outline that I did around the flower. Typically when I do roses, I just do a few messy lines to resemble the petals. This design has more of a uniform look which makes the flowers different. I really don't know how to explain it.....
I think all these colors worked wonderfully together. Each polish is magnificent for nail art as well. I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to use Jacaranda Flower to create the dark purple details because it is a quick dry polish. Typically quick dry polishes get goopy and are really hard to work with when it comes to making lines. I am now sold on these In a Minute NYC polishes for nail art. Cheap with dozens of colors = one happy nail art Alaina.
What do you think? Fan of this manicure? Roses or carnations?
Have a great day! Until next time, <3.
