The One With the Sunflowers

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today??  Can you believe I'm back posting so soon?  That's because I finally edited all my photos and realized I have 7 posts to share with you.  Now if I can only get my butt into gear and pre-publish the posts and write them ahead of time.  Maybe I'll work on that tomorrow.

It's sunflower season, so it's only fitting that I paint some sunflowers on my nails.  This year I did two in a row, and debated which to share with you first.  Since the other one is a re-creation of last year's design,  I thought I'd start with the new design.  This one was slightly inspired by a design I saw on Pinterest using a beloved Serendipity Polish.

Let's take a look.

Colors Used:

  • Serendipity Polish - Bottomless Mimosas
  • Serendipity Polish - Building My Empire
  • Acrylics
Bottomless Mimosas is a gorgeous yellow polish.  Two coats and full coverage.  You technically could have gotten away with one coat, but I had a patchy spot on my middle finger I needed to even out.  It is so bright and cheery, really a perfect yellow.  My Twin Mimmy by OPI is one of my favorite yellows, and this is on par with it, if not better.

Building My Empire is my favorite black polish which I am upset I will never get another bottle of.  One coat, quick drying, and super shiny.  Sigh, I'm so sad about Serendipity Polish closing.

The flowers are actually really easy to create.  I first started by painting the brown center on my nail.  When it was dried, I took a light orange paint and painted the petals, then went through with a yellow paint and filled in the empty spaces between the orange petals.  Since I decided to add some texture so I went through and put a little orange on the yellow petals.  Cleaned up the brown center, added the dots in the center to be little sunflower seeds, added a top coat, and called it a night.  Okay, it sounds a lot more complicated than it really is.

What do you think?  Like this look?  Ever done a sunflower manicure??

Until next time, <3.
