Manicure of the Day!

Today's Mani of The Day is a mani I am especially proud of. Like many of my favorite manis, its a floral! The flowers kind of remind me of hawaii, so this is my Hawaii Floral Design! The foundation color is Essie's Case Study (review here), which is one of my favorite colors to make designs on! Case Study can be purchased here. I also used pink, green, black and white acrylic paint! Acrylic paint can be found at your local craft store, Michael’s and ACMoore.

Some of my favorite designs have been florals, and this one is no different. I like the smaller flowers, and I think I will be experimenting more with them versus making one flower per nail. I think the trick to flowers is the small brushstrokes that add highlights and shadows, they really bring the whole flower together! 

Let me know what you think about this design below or show me your floral designs on Facebook!
