This mani was almost a wonderful success…until it wasn’t. The plan was to make a diagonal gradient from white to orange, and then turn it into a daisy-like flower. All went well, until I put the center of the daisy on the wrong diagonal!
My thumb came out how I intended (the black center is opposite the darkest part of the orange) but on ALL my other fingers I did it wrong. I noticed two nails in and had to decide if I wanted to switch it, but I figured it would look even goofier if two nails were right and two nails were wrong. Anyway. Maybe I’ll try this again with the proper placement of the center of the flower.
– White: Wet n’ Wild – French White Creme
– Light orange: Maybelline – Bleached in Peach
– Orange: Zoya – Thandie
– Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
I should probably do some more floral nail art. It is the summer after all! Even if it was (gloriously) in the 60’s rather than 90’s this past weekend!
***Other news: I am (yet again) entered in a nail art contest over at Nail Polish Canada. I would be very much obliged if you clicked this link, scrolled to the bottom, and voted for ‘flightofwhimsy’ if you haven’t already! Thank you! 🙂 ***
