Brushstrokes and Daisies

Another manicure from before my nail broke again (ugh, so mad I can't even), after I enjoyed Barielle Banana Drop's creamy, lemony-banana sweetness on its own, I went to town on its face with some brushstrokes and flowers.

Have I mentioned how much I love brushstroke manicures? They give you such an awesomely textured look in barely any time at all. It's no secret how much I love doing flower nail art too, and I was excited to see how these two things would come together. Well, it definitely won't be the last time I fire up this combination because I loved it.

The brushstrokes are made up of China Glaze Desert Sun, OPI Need Sunglasses?, China Glaze Riveting, SpaRitual Golden Gleam, Zoya Meg, and of course Barielle Banana Drop. The daisies are acrylic paint, with a hit of Golden Gleam in the centers to tie it all in together.


  1. This is lovely! I love how busy the background looks but with the daisies on top, it just completes it.

  2. I love this Elizabeth - and I love brush stroke manis so much at the moment, in fact today I have one on my blog too ;)

  3. It is very pretty. It look so good.
    I can't paint so good. For me it always looks so catastrophic.
    Sorry for my English. I'm a German Student :D

  4. Sorry about your broken nail.
    But I have to mention that this mani is pure perfection, very artistic and well done!

  5. I like it, seems like some kind of oil painting! :-)

  6. Ohhhhhhh dear! These are such lovely nail art designs! I would love to try them and keep them in one collection so I could check on them back when I want too. Please dear, please allow me to include them on my Pinterest board for nail designs. :) <3 Loving them much :D Actually until now I am just still trying the basic nail art and I find people like you so talented to be able to do wonderful stuffs like this :) cheeeeeers!! xoxo!

  7. You are seriously the master of floral nail art. This is just gorgeous!
