Nail Art: Flowers on the Side

There are several nail polishes sitting on my polish rack that still needs to be used. So the other night, I decided to scan through them and decided to use one for this particular floral nail art. I didn't have any idea in mind yet for the design. I just wanted to be spontaneous. After I did my manicure, I figured I wanted something dainty. I guess something floral will do the trick. I've painted quite a few with this nail design that you can check out here, here, and here. Yes, you can say that this is one of my several nail art designs that I never get tired of recreating. I'm sure most of you can relate to that. ;)

Take a look at the result:

Flowers on the Side Nail Art Design by Simply Rins


I named it so because as you may have noticed, I painted the flowers on random sides on each nail. Well, I did so too with my previous recreations. I have always liked the idea of nail art designs wherein it somehow gives the impression of peeking.

Anyway, the color of this polish is dainty by itself. Please meet Essie Where's My Chauffeur. I think I had this bottle for a year now and have only remembered to use it this week. As you know, I am not particularly drawn to pastel shades. I am more of a vampy girl when it comes to nail polish colors. However, there are times when a good ol' light color becomes a necessity, if you know what I mean. This polish shade is classic and there have been many variations across several brands.

This is a freehand design, painted with acrylic paint using a detail nail art brush.

Flowers on the Side

I wore this during a recent mountain climb and I thought it was ironic. There I was in outdoor attire, braving the rain, and not minding the muddy trail with my girly manicure! And I think it is sort of funny that whenever I hold on to a rock or tree for support, I see my nails and say to myself that it doesn't matter how dirty my hands are, I am rocking my floral nail art! I guess what I am saying is that even though I sport a pixie cut and looked rugged, my nails would always tell people that I am a girl. I love being able to express that message, subtle or not.

I was lucky to not have broken any nail during the climb. I think I've developed that skill on how to maneuver one's fingers when handling things or in my case, holding on to boulders/rocks/trees for dear life. I don't wear really long nails, but they break easily just the same.

I'm trying to have nail art on my nails all the time now because I get sad when I introduce myself as a nail art blogger with plain nails. People get a little disappointed. They have reason to be. But I'll be busy soon so I have to manage my time more effectively if I really want this to happen. Besides, I do miss blogging. :)

Let me leave you by saying that nail art is my message. I used to express myself through my nails until I stopped and I am frustrated with myself that I allowed that to happen. This has been a big part of me. It's good to be back.

I hope you had a wonderful time scrolling through the photos and reading the post as well. What did you think of this floral nail art?
