31dc2013 Flower Nails

I do so much nail art but I just never have time to blog about it! It frustrates me. I'm trying though :)

Here are my flower nails. I knew I wanted to do something a little less realistic than my Violet mani, so I looked up modern flower art and I saw this, and I knew it was perfect for a loose inspiration! I used Sephora by OPI Already Famous for my base, and acrylic paint for the poppies. I liked how it looked matte, so I didn't use a topcoat, but if I were going to wear these for more than an hour I would have needed a topcoat. I also really wanted to try "framed" or "bordered" nails for the first time, so ignoring the fact that they sort of look like blood, I like them :P

Speaking of SOPI, I really am excited to try the new Formula X! I hope it's nice because it's a step up (price wise) from the SOPI line. And I think the SOPI polishes can be really a hit or miss. I love the colors of all them, but the formulas are a bit runny in my opinion. Take the Already Famous polish I used. I think it's a gorgeous color. It's a mysterious silvery gold, and I haven't seen any dupes. But it took me 4-5 coats. Oh well, it was worth it. Enough rambling, here's my flower mani!
