Mint Condition with Flowers

Super-long post today! By which I mean, super-short post today!

flower nail art over Mint Condition

Before I took off The Hungry Asian Mint Condition to do yesterday's TT post, I decided to try a little flower nail art on top. I used acrylic paints for these, hoping to match the tiny red and blue glitter. Thought about doing the purple too, but I didn't want to go overboard and cover too much of the base.

    1. Thank you, Sarah! I still have a lot of improving to do, but with the right sized brush and a little bit of practice, it's not nearly as hard as I assumed it would be. Give it a shot, and I bet you'll be surprised!

  5. With Mint Condition on your nails, right from the start you got a base with dots of various colours, so it was a perfect background to your flowers that match the dot colours perfectly! :-) Beautiful flower nail art! :-)

    1. Thanks so much, Heather! I wouldn't have thought to put red and blue over mint myself, but they're just so cute together in Mint Condition that I thought I'd give it a try. It was supposed to be just a quick little experiment before I moved on to doing my TT post, but I ended up putting that one off for another half a day to wear these a little longer. ;)

    1. Thank you very much, Becca! And you should totally give it a shot! I can count the number of times I've done acrylic painting on one hand and still have a ton of room for improvement, but it's not nearly as hard as I'd convinced myself it would be. I highly recommend Robin Moses's videos on YouTube for some great tips and encouragement!
