Mish Mash Challenge: Flowers

Hello loves!

I can't believe it's Wednesday already! I don't know about you guys but this week is just flying by! Anyways, it's time for another Mish Mash Challenge day. Today's theme is flowers and I have to say this is the first challenge that I'm not quite satisfied with. I had a super headache yesterday so they aren't as intensive as my other challenge days :( I suppose I should quit whining and just show you guys though right? LOL

I started with a base of Azature White. Then I freehanded the striped using Maybelline Color Show Green With Envy, totally mint not green -_- Then I painted the flowers... roses?... with pink and white acrylic paint and the leaves with green. I top coated and then it was done!







I really like the abstract feel to the flowers they were super easy to create, just two dots of paint and swirled together with a toothpick. Do they look enough like flowers? 

What do you think guys?
Make sure you check out everyone else's flower nails!

  14. This is just perfect, Kristine! :D I had a similar idea and failed at detailing the flowers, so I just went for something totally different. The swirling thing is genius, I have to try that out! Love all about those nailzzzz!
