This manicure is a recreation of something I've done almost two years ago using a yellow base and green for the flowers. I haven't used studs on my nails for ages and I remembered how much I enjoyed that manicure, so I decided to do something similar with a different color scheme. After much deliberation I settled on Orly Harmonious Mess as a base. It's a lilac creme with a hint of a blue undertone. Just lovely!
For the stamping I used a flower image from plate CH50 from the second Cheeky set, another one that I haven't used in ages. I decided to stamp with Konad White and that's where things started going bad. I didn't realize that the bottle needed shaking, so the stamping on the first nails doesn't look that great. By the time I realized it I was already on my other hand, so my left hand looked a lot better than my right, which never happens. While I was stamping I also found out that my base wasn't completely dry, even though I waited for over 20 minutes. This all resulted in a less than perfect result. Oh well.
All in all, I still liked these nails very much. I can't believe I went such a long time without using studs. They are one of my favorite nail art accessories. Hopefully these flowers will bring a bit of spring in your soul, even though there's none outside. Have a relaxing weekend!
