Nail Art: Floral Pastel

I decided to do a nail art that is simple and dainty. I was feeling a little under the weather so I painted a simple floral pattern on my nails and hoped that it would turn out good. Honestly, I am not really sure what to feel about this nail art that I called Floral Pastel. Perhaps, I should let you judge for yourself.

Take a look:

I always find it hard to take pictures of pastels because they fight more with the lighting. This nail design looks better in real life. But I still have mixed feelings with this particular design.

Dazzle Dry At First Blush

For background color, I used 3 coats of Dazzle Dry At First Blush for full coverage, a creme white polish with very light pink undertones. Consistency is slightly on the thick side that is probably the reason for a streaky application. A work around is to make sure to apply the polish lightly on the nails to avoid visible brush strokes.

I hand painted the design using acrylic paints and a detailing nail art brush. My idea was to use different pastel colors to paint the floral pattern on all the nails. I was thinking that perhaps using 1 color and making an ombre version of this would look even better.

The real inspiration for this design actually came from a sentiment that was shared to me by a nail art beginner. She said she is always pressured to come up with detailed design because she feels she would impress the people around her. I think this is a common problem with a lot of nail art enthusiasts. I used to feel that way too until I realized that we do nail art for ourselves, right? And really, who said that a simple nail art cannot be beautiful? A simple polka dots nail art is always considered a classic and it is always lovely to look at. And so, I wanted to show her through this nail design that not so complicated designs can look beautiful as well.
