I mentioned earlier in the week that my middle nail had broken to the quick, and I still had more awesome manis to do for Floral Week. To say I was bummed is an understatement - I am on holiday next week too, and it looks like I won't be able to spend so much time playing with my nails as I planned to.
So it left me with some choices - post the 2 stamping failures I had already mentally put in the trash bin; abandon the challenge; do nail art featuring the hideous nubbin ..... or do some art on my wrong hand.
To be honest, I've arted on my "wrong" hand before. In fact, a year ago, I did almost an entire Christmas Challenge on it, so I knew it could be done. The question though, was how good would it be ?
Well, as it turns out, not tooooo bad. I deliberately picked something doable, and whilst I'm sure it would have looked better on my proper hand, I prefer it to the 2 stamping manis (which I'll post tomorrow).
This started with 2 coats of Elevation Polish Alphubel, a gorgeous glossy pale blue, with a slight lavender lean and shimmer. I then sealed my mani with Poshe and then added my flowers with a dotting tool before dabbing them with acetone. I used Barry M Blood Orange and Blackberry, and OPI Call Me Gwen-Ever.
Finally, I used my acrylics to add the green stems, and then, as something seemed lacking, added some sunshine (not sure that was the right move though).
So, tolerable? Enjoy xx
