Spring Renewal Nail Art Challenge Day 3: Spring Flowers

   Today is day 3 of the challenge and the theme is Spring flowers. I thought I'd take this opportunity to try out a few different techniques and see what I could come up with. While yesterday was a nail art triumph today is a different story. What can I say, you win some, you lose some.

     I started out with a base of Sinful Colors Tidal Wave. The pretty Robin's egg blue reminded me of a clear sky on a fresh spring day.


      Next came time for the flowers. I attempted the one stroke flower technique on 2 of my nails and I actually like those the best. For my ring finger, I used a new nail art brush and attempted to make flowers with individual petals. Those are a bit of a fail but were a great learning experience. And I don't really want to talk about my pinkie. I consider it the bad seed of this manicure.

     I have decided to title the manicure as "The learning experience". I learned that even though I absolutely love floral manicures they don't exactly love me back. I learned that I have a hard time making the correct angels with my brush, and I need to take my time. I also learned that I can show improvement within one manicure. My pointer finger was the last one I did and I like it the best.

    So enough of my debacle, let's see what the others have come up with for today.


  1. That's some pretty Spring flowers.

  2. You may think it's a fail, but I totally love it. It reminds me of someone laying on their back looking at the blue sky and smelling flowers. Perfect spring mani! :)

    1. Thank you. That makes me feel a bit better about this manicure. I don't think its a complete fail. Its just that this was a lot harder to do than I thought it would be. And Im not thrilled with the results.

  3. I think you did an awesome job!
