It seemed appropriate to show you a flowery manicure today. I actually created this a few weeks ago in response to a prompt by Nail It! magazine for a chance to be featured in the next issue. I won't know if this made it into the magazine or not until it hits the news stands in a few months, but regardless I'm quite excited about how it turned out...
To create this manicure, I started out with a base of Rimmel London Wild Orchid. I picked it for the color, but the perfect fitting name didn't hurt either. I stamped the orchids from MoYou London Pro XL plate 14 using KleanColor White.
When I bought this stamping plate, I honestly didn't think I would be reaching for this image because it seemed sort of flat and lacking detail for me. I kept wishing that instead of solid petals it was outlines so that I could create decals and color them as I wished. It wasn't until my new found love of adding detail after I stamp that I finally realized this image was perfect just as it is. Adding the detail after stamping turned out to be even easier than decals would have been...
I used acrylic paint and a small detail brush to add the yellow centers as well as the fuchsia and pink dashed lines on the petals. This gave the flowers so much dimension and really brought them to life..
Rimmel London Wild Orchid
A violet/orchid cream. This has a smooth and creamy formula which was completely opaque in two coats. This lacquer has been in my untried stash for years now and I'm glad to finally give it the spotlight it deserves. It is a gorgeous cream and perfect for spring, not to mention that it is the Pantone color of the year! Swatches are two coats with a top coat...
