TRI Tropical Flowers
It's time for another installment of the TRI-polish challenge, and today, I'm going tropical. I started with a polish I received in my Memebox Blue, so it's a Korean-style brand named Dearberry that I've not heard of before. Dearberry 33 is beautiful, though, and it didn't stain. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
The inspiration for this nail art came from one of those collections where the originator wasn't named. I've linked it in my Pinterest, and, per usual, if you know the creator, I'd love to credit and link them here. I stamped the outline of the flower with Revlon Spirit, using Red Angel plate 119.
I wanted the flowers to have a juicy, shiny quality, so I outlined with a red striper, and then filled in with the flakie goodness of Models Own Red Sea.
The nice thing about striper polish, is that it's usually pretty opaque, so even yellow pops. I also used a white striper to make more dots and redefine the outline of the flower. Can't even tell it was stamped now, can ya. I just look like a painting *genius*. Geeeeenius.
Off we go, to a tropical paradise... with a polish that came from Korea, and stripers probably made in China, and Models Own is from the UK. Hmm.
Bottle shot: Dearberry 33, Revlon Spirit, Models Own Red Sea, and stripers in red, yellow, and white.
If you could go on a tropical vacation, where would you go?
