Lit from Within: Daisies, take two

Daisies, take two

I love getting massages.  We have a massage therapist that comes to the house every now and again, and my husband and I treat ourselves to full-body massages.  I like making it a whole experience - I set up the I-pod to play soft music, I light a candle, and this time, I painted my nails in anticipation.

I started with a long-time lemming - Butter London Trout Pout.  It was... a little disappointing.  The application was no where as nice as BL British Racing Green, and the color wasn't so much the soothing salmon I thought it to be, but turned out almost neon-bright.

I decided to try the Robin Moses daisies again, now that I'm *cough* better at nail art *cough, cough*

I drew some lines with China Glaze Gaga for Green, and added in the daisies with Sally Hansen White Tip.  Then I painted in the centers with CQ rustic dream, a beautiful coppery duochrome.
A little black dotted in the centers completes the daisies.  I also used CQ Diamond Envy on the other fingers to tone down the Trout Pout a little.  I just dabbed it on in a similar pattern as the white daisies.  Seche Vite to topcoat, and done.

Right hand:

So, this time, do they actually look like flowers?

  1. Aww, you did well, it's so cute.
    You should look into acrylic paints for nail art...


Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
