Wayback Nails: New Bohemian Cherry Blossoms

I was so proud of myself for having last month's Wayback Nails all scheduled in advance, but sliding in just under the wire is really more my speed...so Happy 29th of May! Looking over last May's posts I noticed the following at the bottom of my write-up of Color Club New Bohemian: "Note to self: wear this again, and paint flowers all over its face."

Well, all rightey then!

I love doing cherry blossom nail art over a minty teal polish like this one. I wanted these to be a little different from my usual, though, and took the inspiration from this Robin Moses tutorial to paint them in warm neutrals, instead of my usual pink and white. I really like the gold and cream against this beautiful base!

I also noticed that in last year's write-up I said Color Club New Bohemian (which I am physically incapable of using--or typing--without getting "What I Am" lodged deep within my brain) was a little patchy on the first coat, and it was patchy this time as well. It also pulled on my 2nd coat and was a bit thick overall, not spreading or settling especially well. So while I still love the colour, I can't rave about the formula. But I do still love the colour! I did add a few drops of OPI thinner about halfway through, though, and that helped bunches.

By the way, I tried out a new matte top coat with these, and I have to give a huge thumbs-up to Wet n Wild Wild Shine Matte Top Coat...even if the name made me do a double-take. I know Wild Shine is a specific product line, like their Megalast or Revlon Colorstay, but a matte called "Wild Shine" amuses me ay more than it probably should.
