Floral Newsprint Nails


I love the look of floral nails and I've always wanted to try but never really got the gusto to do them until last night. I decided to try them over newsprint nails. My newsprint didn't show up very strong but I still like the look a lot. The flowers are relatively abstract, but hey..nail art is..art, it doesn't have to be perfect, just color in the lines (harharhar). I really do love these, and next time will be using maybe one or two more colors  for the flowers.

The clean up on this was...annoying. I always forget it's easier to clean up BEFORE adding seche vite on top.

I used Essie Sand Tropez for the base, Zoya Lara and Shelby for the flowers, and this mint green Color Club for the leaves. I used my dotting tools for all this. Unfortunately, after doing a sink full of dishes, this mani didn't make it past the 24 hour mark. Oh well, I have other plans for my nails anyway. )
