Today, I want to show you some nail art inspired by a floral design by The Nail Newbie. I really liked her super-sized flowers.
I used all Mentality polishes for this look. I started with Friendship, a grey-purple duochrome with a subtle holo.
I like how the purple creeps up from the edges of the nail. There's also some green in there!
I used Tempest and a nail art brush to make the super-large flowers. Tempest is a vampy red shimmer with a matte finish. I actually wasn't loving how it looked matte, though.
For a bit of highlight, I dabbed on a bit of Zip. It was too subtle for this application, though. It needs more surface area, because it is really pretty!
See what I mean about Tempest with a glossy topcoat? It glows!
Bottle shot: Mentality Friendship, Tempest, and Zip.
What do you think about the super-sized flowers? Do you prefer floral nail art where you can see more of the flower? Is it too abstract to be easily identified as a flower?
