Green Floral and Stripes

Sometimes I surprise myself when a mani is finished; I start with one thing in mind and it ends up totally different!  This is one of those; this really isn't my 'style' of nails but I loved how it turned out when it was all done.  In fact, I've done a few spins on this mani since (some shared already, some not) but this was the one that started it.  It's obviously my style now lol!  Here's what I came up with!

Started with a base of two coats of Turtle Tootsies Turn Off The Lights!, no top coat.  I picked this up last year at 2018 Indie Expo Canada in Toronto.  2019 IEC will be held on August 18th with workshops taking place on August 17th.  Do you plan on attending?  

Topped with a thin layer of Fiendish Fancies Princess Without A Voice.  This was a press sample that I received at 2018 Indie Expo Canada; I liked it so much that I bought a full size bottle!

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Stamped stripes using Lina Born To Sail 01 using EdK Lili and flowers using Lina Feeling Shapely! 08 using FunkyFingers Gesso.

Added dots to flower centers using EdK Lili.

Topped with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.

While I liked the look of the nails, I decided to add more flowers to the striped nails; used same image from Lina Feeling Shapely! 08 using FunkyFingers Gesso, then stamped using EdK Lili.  Topped with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Thanks for looking!

  1. These are SO CUTE!!! I love how this color palate gives the whole mani a retro, 70s vibe but doing it in say, yellow/pink/orange would have a totally different feel!
