Good Morning, and welcome to another Monday!!  Can you believe it is already May 10th?  This month is flying by.  While I realize we have yet to experience Spring or Summer, I'm low key not mad that it's flying by because I love Fall and I'm ready for all things cozy again.  Although, I don't want to skip summer all together though because I have the makings for an amazing garden this year.  I have so many little seedlings, including flowers!  Never before have I started flowers from seeds, so I am really excited for that.

Since I'm in the flower mood, that means it's going to be a very heavy floral season on The Little Canvas.  Today's manicure is one of my all time favorite floral designs that I created years ago.  While it's nothing special to look at, for me it holds tons of memories.  This was one of the designs I'd frequently do on my resident's nails at the facility I used to work at.  Ohhhh the simpler, Pre-COVID times where I was able to paint my people's nails.  I need to get back into the swing of it.  Anyways, today's manicure popped up on my Facebook memories a few days ago lined up next to one of my resident's nails.  I just had to paint them again.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • Morgan Taylor - Potts of Tea
  • Assorted polishes
Yeah, I don't know what colors I used for the flowers.  To be honest, I think it was a mixture of OPI polishes because OPI has some of the most gorgeous, eye catching colors for little designs like this.  Potts of Tea though is a true beauty.  It's a white/blue polish with this very subtle pink shimmer.  It gives a boring plain polish such dimension with that shimmer.  It truly is the perfect base for this manicure. 

I'm not going to lie, I get a bit teary eyed looking at this manicure because I truly miss the wonderful women whose nails I painted with this design.  It's been almost three years since the first one passed and it's just shocking to me that time went by that fast. It feels like it was just yesterday that I was sitting in Pretty Polish chatting with them and painting.

People ask me all the time why I work in nursing homes, and it's reasons like this.  For those connections that I made that I still hold near and dear to my heart.  I have learned and continue to learn so much from my residents..

What do you think? Like this manicure?

Until next time, <3.
