31 Day Nail Challenge: Day 14

14 Oct

Today’s challenge was flowers, which I haven’t done a lot of. A while back I did a design with some simplistic dotted flowers, and I once attempted a single nail with the oh-so-popular vintage rose design I’ve seen everywhere. But today I wanted to try something new and challenging for me, and felt inspired by the awesome Jessie of Nailed It NZ. She recently posted an easy tutorial for her awesome daisy nails, so I thought I’d try it out!

I went for a completely different and unrelated colour palette, mostly because I felt inspired by the maxi dress I happened to be wearing today. It’s mostly black, with these lovely pink/teal flowers on it. I went for a teal base with pink daisies, accented by black centres.

The teal is China Glaze (of course) Exotic Encounters, from the Safari collection. I absolutely ADORE this shade, it looks amazing on my skintone and in general is just a gorgeous shade. Everyone should have it! The daisies are a bastardised shade of red, blue and white that I mixed using my acrylic paints, and the black is just acrylic paint too. I used nail art brushes and a dotting tool from Born Pretty Store. Every nail fiend should shop there! As soon as I get some moolah I’m going on a BPS spree >_<

So anyway, that’s it! Mine are obviously not as neat and practised as Jessie’s, but I love her design and I’ll definitely do it again! Everyone should go check her blog out, she does the coolest nail art and she’s here in NZ too 😀

Until tomorrow (which is still unplanned)
