Hand Painted Flowers....

This is the first manicure I have really been disappointed in. I had such high hopes for this manicure, but it didn't turn out how I pictured it. My cuticles have been really dry lately, which makes makes cleaning up polish in that area difficult. Oh well, maybe someone will like it. 

I used two base coats of Konad Regular Polish in pastel green. Then using a paint brush, I painted on the petals of the flower with  Orly Hawaiian Punch. The leaves/stems are painting on with Sinful Colors Last Chance. The dot in the center of the flower is painting on with Revlon Cooper Penny.

Lol, flowers that small can be very hard to paint! Don't get discouraged, just try again later. I painted my toes with little bitty flowers a couple weeks ago and it took me SEVERAL tries to get it right. Also, once you have a base coat, just use your acrylics and thin paint brushes to make the flowers. That helped me a lot! Then I finished it off with a clear top coat and they look untouched two weeks later! =)

Thanks for the tips Lynn. It is hard to paint the flowers on especially on the opposite hand! =)

Hello my name is Marcia live Sp Brazil, I have some blogs on Surveys nails, just coming to your blog, I found interesting in my research I have been noticing that the culture of making the nails are different in other countries could you talk a bit about their culture on my blog, we could exchange ideas and technical material to do nails.

Thank you!
