31DC: Day 14 - Flowers/Digit-al Dozen Blue Week (Le Fleur nail art)

Closing in on the halfway mark! Day 14 brings us flowers :) I've done this type of flower mani once before. Check it out here. I wanted this one to have a different feel to it, even though it is the same technique to create it. How do you think it compares? Which one do you like better?

 I used 2 coats of Rescue Beauty Lounge Bella here. The flowers are Rescue Beauty Lounge Jack and Dead Calm with a touch of Zoya Creamy. Can you believe I forgot to take my bottle shots!! EEK. So, to make up for it, I've included 2 photos of my nails before the yellow centers, and before the top coat. I kind of really like it like this as well. Show texture. Do you like it better before or after top coat?







I love these. Feels elegant, fun and artsy all at the same time. Stay tuned for delicate print coming up tomorrow :)

  3. Those are BEAUTIFUL, at all the different stages! (top coated ones are my fav). And those pink/yellow ones too! These will go into my "hope I can somehow do that on my own nails" folder. :)

  4. I like this manicure more than the first one, because the colours that you used last time are not "my" colours and here we have exactly this what I call "my" colours :-) I also like that you put the flowers irregularly, so all your nails are different :-) And, I like it more with the yellow dot and with the top coat :-)
    Beautiful manicure! :-)

  6. I don't know how you do it, but you always have the most amazing manis! I LOVE this, and like it moreso than the first one because the center pops out a bit more. So pretty!

  11. I love the way the petals haven't gone completely opaque - such a fab effect.

  12. Very cool! I love how painterly it looks, and I like it best with topcoat so it looks like a glazed piece. So pretty!!
