Where In The World Challenge: Finland

Hello my lovelies! How are you on this fine Saturday? I wanted to get this post up earlier but I didn't type it up yesterday cause I've spent most of the afternoon and evening swatching my collection. I got my swatch sticks in the mail and now I'm working on getting my collection organized. I know a lot of people have been posting about these lately, but I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a post from me. Tell me in the comment box if you are! And now let's get to today's nail art. The next country I have to travel to for my challenge is Finland. I had the perfect idea for this country and luckily it wasn't too hard to paint. 


The lily-of-the-valley is the national flower of Finland. I remember having these in my garden when I was little. These flowers are so delicate and beautiful and their smell is absolutely divine. Ironically, they are poisonous, but that shouldn't bother us too much cause whey are pretty to look at. I was happy to find out that they were the national flower of this country because I really wanted to paint some flowers on my nails, even though spring doesn't want to come over here. The weather looks like October and I'm so over this rain! 



As a base for this manicure, I used p2 Wild Miss which I have shown you in yesterday's post. The color is not accurate in these photos, so if you wanna see how it really looks check out the post about it. I painted everything else using some small nail art brushes and a dotting tool. The green I used for the stems is China Glaze Four Leaf Clover


I really hope you enjoyed this post! To check out more Finland themed manicures click on the links below.
