31 Day Nail Challenge: Day 14 Flowers


Hello, Loves! Now, I am no Maria from Maria's Nail Art and Polish, who is an expert at painting all kinds of flowers, but this is my attempt at flowers! I used Orly's Iron Butterfly as the base and used a small brush and Lime Crime's Parfait Day and Pastelchio for the flowers. I don't know what kind of flowers these are...maybe tulips? What do you think? :P


Be sure to check out these lovely ladies to see what they created for today's challenge!

  4. Totally beautiful! I love how the pretty pastels really pop against the textured black. And you did such a great job with your flowers too! They definitely look like tulips--or they could be lotus blossoms or water lilies...Whatever, they're all kinds of pretty!! :D

  17. I like how you painted them over a dark kinda rougher looking base, it makes it less girly :) btw they look like tulips to me too.
