We're mixing it up a bit today with a double challenge whammy! A floral mani for DD, and a matte mani for one of this week's prompts in the #52WPNMC.
Truth be told, I'm a little disappointed with how this turned out. I love the design, the orange and the matte - but man I'm bummed about the green. It's China Glaze Grass Is Lime Greener, and it's turned a hideous highlighter bright shade on my nails, rather than the lovely medium counterpoint to the orange that I had in mind.
Oh well. I've again got Barry M Coconut on base. This is becoming a new favourite. A lot of bloggers (me included) have a hefty love affair with OPI My Vampire is Buff, but the Barry M is cheaper and requires ony 2 coats (a new bottle of Buff needs 3).
The orange is another OPI classic, Hot and Spicy, and it complemented the base perfectly.
I started with the orange flowers, and then added the green ones in in the gaps. I then added constrasting dots to the centre of the flowers.
So, a semi-win. Damn that bloody green!
