Nail Art: Bunch of Flowers

It is no secret that I love vampy colors on my nails. I think it makes my hands and feet look sexy. I have been trying brighter colors lately but my love for darker shades seems forever.

After two days of waiting for a nail art idea to come around, I caved in and decided to just polish my nails first and hope that the design would swing by soon. I had no problems choosing the shade that I wanted. "I want sexy nails!"

Now the challenge is to create a feminine nail design with a very dark polish as background color. I didn't have much time to paint my nails so I opted for something that was quite easy to do and didn't require much precision. I decided to paint flowers using random swirls and I think it worked well.

Here's what I came up with:

I liked how the colors came in contrast with the vampy base color. I left enough spaces in between the bunches of flowers to make sure this gorgeous shade remains visible.

I used 2 coats of Dazzle Dry Pumped Up Purple as base for this nail design. You can view the swatch here, along with other Dazzle Dry colors. I must say that this color is very hard to photograph. My pictures is not giving this shade justice. It appears like a deep brown shade when it is actually a rich, dark purple. Had no problems with application and consistency was really manageable.

As for the design, I hand painted the flowers using acrylic paints and a detailing nail art brush. I decided to use 4 colors -- red, pink, yellow, and blue.

The idea was to paint small bunches of roses and to paint them the easiest way possible. Well, since they are small, precision is not really a concern. Painting random swirls helped me achieve the effect that I wanted.

I used white with each color of rose for shading purposes or to make the shape of the roses more evident. I also added a few white dots at random places to take care of awkward spaces.

I'll be attending a party within the week and I know this nail design will last until then because I used the Dazzle Dry Quick Dry Nail System. And since this is a totally vegan nail polish, I really don't have to worry about leaving a very pigmented shade on my nails because it will never cause yellowing. How cool is that!?

Vampy and feminine, check! What do you think? :)
