Who knew I'd miss doing floral nail art so much? When I did this look for yesterday's post on Reviva Labs, I fell in love.
I didn't take any pictures of the creation, but I did take a few more of the finished product..
I started with two coats of Wet 'n Wild LAC-My Mani, a pale cream matte from their new Fall LE collection. Over that, I did a light sponge of Revlon Essence, a dusty green, and a little white.
I did a one-stroke technique for the flowers, where I loaded a flat paintbrush with Sally Hansen White Tip on one edge, and Koco Mountain Of Youth on the other, blended a little, and then created the flowers. A few dots of white and black in the center completed the look.
No topcoat this time - I wanted to preserve the contrast of the glossy and slightly textured flowers against the matte background.

On the one hand, it kinda reminds me of a bedspread my mom would love. On the other, I totally love it, and found myself sneaking peeks at it. And it's not holo, OR flakie. Who knew?
Have you ever surprised yourself with how much you loved a particular makeup or nail polish look?
