FingerFood's Theme Buffet: Flowers

Friday, 7 March 2014

Late post again this evening, had a bit of a throat infection this week and now my ears and nose are blocked :( My poor head feels like it might explode lol!... Sooo it's taken me a while to get the energy for nails today!

But, I was determined to do this themed mani organised by the lovely Samantha at FingerFood Nails... In discovering her group recently, I found a nail neighbour (she lives in the same area) at last!! No one is ever nearby so I was super happy to find her and I've admired her nails for some time. Each week there is a different theme to take part in, and this week is flowers! I took a step away from the pastels today... and went NEON... but given the pearlescent finish and bright light, they look a bit... pastel! LOL :)

I started with two coats of white and then sponged on the green, yellow, pink and purple neons in what was going to be a random way; but my fuzzy head confused this with pink and green, and purple and yellow paired haha. I then stamped the floral print in a black and topcoated. I think the polishes have faded a little with age as well as the light and shine washing them out a little. Oh :(

They actually look much more neon in a more yellow artificial light but in daylight this is pretty true to the finish. Despite the slightly lacklustre luminous result, I did love the simple black floral over the sponged colours, will definitely do this again.
