The One With the Sunflowers and Dots

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing on this fine Thursday?  I meant to have this post up yesterday but again, time got away from me.  I did paint my nails twice this week, which lately that's a rarity.  I actually went the whole weekend with naked nails.  I don't even know who I am anymore.  Now that it's getting cooler again and the days are shorter, I'm going to be painting more and returning back to this blog.

Today's design is a perfect Summer/Fall transition manicure!  You can never go wrong with sunflowers, especially when they're on top of a gorgeous periwinkle blue polish.  I've come to the conclusion that sunflowers are my favorite flowers.  It used to be tulips, and I'm sure in the Spring I'll say tulips are my favorite, but right now it's sunflowers.  My co-worker gave me a bouquet of them yesterday because I had a rough day and it was the sweetest thing ever.  No one ever gets me flowers. 

And in my office at work, I have a painted sunflower portrait I did at Painting With a Twist.  I look at that painting daily and still sometimes can't believe that I painted it.  Sure I can paint my nails, but I never thought I could paint that well on a canvas.  Regardless, I just love me some sunflowers.

Enough of my babbling, let's take a loo!

Colors Used:
  • China Glaze - Boho Blues
  • Acrylics
Absolutely love Boho Blues by China Glaze.  I purchased this one a few years back and I really need to see if it's part of the core collection because I need another bottle.  Two coats and full coverage.  It's just so beautiful!  I'm now imagining it with a top coat of INM Northern Lights and I'm really dying over here.

Looking back at this manicure, I'm realizing I created the look the hard way.  I should have started by painting my base, then adding white polka dots.  Instead, I started with the flowers then added the dots.  That was kind of a pain because I couldn't get the dots to fit in how I wanted with my OCD.  They look good though.

For the flowers, I again did them the hard way.  I should have drawn the outline and then colored it in like a coloring book.  Instead, I started with the semi circle, painted the petals, then outlined them.  Oh well, maybe next time I'll do it the easier way.  Watch, I do it the way I think is easier and it will end up being more difficult.

What do you think?  Like this look?  Something you'd try?

Until next time, <3.
