Frangipani Flower Nail Art with Dior - Lazy Days of Summer Challenge

AAAH, it's been way too long since I've posted for my summer challenge, The Lazy Days of Summer. I've been wanting to try flower nails for the longest time and they were perfect for the 8th theme "In the Garden". This is my first attempt and I wanted to create my favorite flower, pink frangipani.

I used two shades from the Dior Summer Mix Collection because, well they are drop dead gorgeous, and also they have the perfect consistency (sorbet like) for what I wanted to achieve.

Dior Vernis Acapulco and Calypso


 My inspiration!! I can smell these by memory just by looking at these photos. If anyone knows of a fragrance that exists with pink (not white) frangipani I'd be eternally grateful :)








I love the look of these, especially how the pinky turned out, but I think I should have gone with the pinker shade from this collection. Ah well, next time! Also will include a tutorial next time. I didn't know if these would turn out ok, so I didn't take tutorial pics ;)

Do you think my flowers look like frangipani?

Here's a list of what's next!!


Check out all the other awesome ladies doing this challenge with me!! -- If I have forgotten to add you, please let me know and I will fix it!!



As always, thanks for reading!! See you next time :D

  10. They look like the plumeria that used to grow in my grandparents' yard, my childhood home. They're everywhere here in town. :-)

    If I find a fragrance here at one of the local businesses, I'll send you some!

  13. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on
    numerous websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress
    posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
