Flowers. Everybody does flowers on their nails. How do you come up with some thing original when EVERYBODY does flowers on their nails? I really was itching to do something different and unique. I have these pretty things growing out side my house and I have a polish to match:
I figured I could so some swirly lines on my nails along with some cool shading and I would have something that looked like my front yard flowers. It seemed like a great idea in my head, but it was a major fail. Really, I tried pretty much every technique I could think of. I tried the one stroke technique. Total fail. (I don’t know how those people on youtube do it.) I tried using wavy cut stickers to make a wavy line. Another fail. I tried shading with acrylic paint. Fail. I tried shading with nail polish. Fail. I finally just decided that I would do something simple that looked like a flower petal on my nail and I came up with this awful look:
Ugh, terrible, I know. (Oh, and keep in mind that I was really feeling under the weather, so my head was sort of fuzzy this whole time. ) I went to bed with these ugly nails and hated them even more when I woke up this morning. Before heading off to church, I took the polish off and painted my nails black with the intention of adding some flowers after we got back from church. That’s right, I went to church with plain-black-gothic-death-looking nails.
This story does have a happy ending, though. After we got home from church, I added some flowers and my nails ended up looking like this:
I’m happy with these! I’m sad to take them off. I’ll see you tomorrow with some delicate print nails.
