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!
