Red Daisy

After wearing a lot of pastels recently, I decided to go with a nice, rich jewel-tone for today.

Today’s manicure is a combination of two elements not usually seen together: red foil polish and daisies. While I don’t usually think of red as a spring color, I think the daisies give it a more springy feeling. The base is Orly Quintessential Crimson, a very nice foil-y red shimmer. From there, I just stuck a few daisy decals on. I added some orange rhinestones to the center of the daisies. I often lose rhinestones, so I added three layers of topcoat to sort of glue them in. I didn’t lose any rhinestones, but the facets were kind of lost under that much topcoat- they just looked like glass domes, rather than jewels.

 

This was a 15 minute manicure, which left me some more time to think of new freehand nail art designs….check back soon!

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.
