Hearty Nails: Yellow flowers

Hello everyone! There is a small announcement today: I will be changing the appearance of the blog very soon. You may or may not be excited about that (probably not) but I sure am.

Today's nail art is sponsored by my lack of variety when drawing flowers. I wanted to practise some different flowers, because I always go to easy roses or dot-flowers when I think of any kind of flower. 


I think this was actually a poor attempt at daffodils. I painted a white creme base, which I don't remember what polish it was because I currently have 3 different creme white polishes (...yeah, I know). Then I sponged some green for texture and did some green lines as stems, in a waterfall-y style. Then went the flower heads, where you can see my absolute lack of painting skill (perspective? what perspective?). The colour was all done in acrylic paints, then topped with a matte topcoat (which I also don't remember because I have...also 3 of them).

That's all for today~ See you soon with a new look~

Hearty Nails: Buttons

You know how people collect buttons? I don't imagine it's all people, just the ones that sew. Buttons often of unknown origin, gathered together in a box. Sometimes, a tin box that once housed biscuits of some kind.
The specific button box that inspired this manicure wasn't a former biscuit tin, actually, it was a collection housed in a tupperware. Points for originality, I guess.



To be honest these were too many colours to remember, but I do remember it was done in all polish, because I did it when I went to England and had no paints. And yet I had all these colours, hah (except for the light purple from the heart shaped button, that one was borrowed).
