Radiant Orchid nails – Inspired by a Colour

Hi everyone!

We’re into the third and final section of the 31 Day Challenge. During this section, each look is inspired by something (a movie, a pattern, an artwork, etc). Today’s nails are inspired by a colour. I decided to go with this year’s Pantone Colour of the Year, Radiant Orchid.

I couldn’t get mine looking as great as hers, but hopefully it’s at least a recognisable orchid. I started with Tip Top Cream Puff as a base, then painted the orchids using Tip Top Grape to Meet You, Essence Wanna Be Your Sunshine, and acrylic paints.

I did them a couple of months ago and when I was about to post them I realised they’d be perfect for today instead. Even though I think I could do better with the flowers, they are quite pretty and perfect for nails inspired by a colour.
