A little while ago I did some blue flower nail art over Jessica Fudge that was mostly based on this Robin Moses tutorial. I loved the look, the scrolling with the bright flowers on top, so I decided to give it another go, this time using the actual colours from the tutorial.
The base is Bandi M802 Metallic Silver. This silver foil was a bit thin, needing 3 full coats for opacity, but I was so impressed with how completely brushstrokey it was not. That's really rare in a polish this metallic, so well done, Bandi! Everything else is acrylic paint. I mixed up a silver for the dots to match the base, rather than using the polish, and had literally just top coated my first nail (SV) when it occurred to me that I could also have gone with some tiny silver studs. Might have been really cute, or it might've been a little much, with all the silver and black and bright flowers already, so I'll probably try it out soon on a manicure without quite so much for them to compete with.
Of course these aren't a patch on Robin's original manicure--her scrolling is
always so smooth and delicate--but I was quite happy with the result!
Definitely eye-catching but not too out there. I wore a loose,
black top with a hot pink tank underneath, and they looked kinda awesome
together...so long as you didn't inspect my right hand too closely
because lefty is still way behind on the learning curve. Just gotta keep on practicing!
