The One With the Splash Flower

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  It's Saturday, but honestly it's just another day to me.  I'll sleep in, eat some food, and watch Netflix.  My life is so thrilling.  Well, I might spend some time outside because it's probably going to be the last nice weekend before Fall really sets in.  Who knows, maybe this is the start to an Indian Summer.  We will just have to wait and see.

Since it's going to be in the 80s, I figured I would share a bright manicure that is perfect one to wear if you're holding on to summer.  The other night I was feeling really uninspired and I asked my friend Holly to pick out a manicure, and she came back with a bright splash flower design.  At first I didn't like it, but it really grew on me and I loved how it turned out.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • ORLY - Summer Fling
  • ORLY - Frolic
  • ORLY - Mirrorball
  • Serendipity Polish - Holo-Day Lights
Cute, right?  I haven't done a splash flower design in awhile and I forgot how easy they are to do.  To get the look, once your white base is dry, you pretty much paint a flower on your nail using the dry brush technique.  For this one, I started with Summer Fling and dry brushed some petals on.  I then filled in the center with Frolic using the same technique.  I then went through with my nail art brush and outlined the dry brush.  The whole point of the splash flower is that it doesn't have to be perfect, it's supposed to look a tad messy and abstract.

Summer Fling is a gorgeous polish from ORLY.  In my opinion, it's a crelly polish which applies evenly in two coats.  It's such a bright coral peach which is the perfect summer color.  I used it for a pedicure and was not disappointed.

What do you think?  Like this look?  Think it's a good end of summer design??

Until next time, <3.
