Freehand Flowers

Painted Fingertips | Freehand flowers over a gradient

Hi everyone!

I have really been loving gradients lately and today I have used a gradient again, as a base for some fun freehand nail art. I was inspired by this post on A Little Polish, where Stephanie stamped flowers over a gradient. I did something similar but I changed up the colours and did it freehand. Painted Fingertips | Freehand flowers over a gradientI started off with a gradient of Tip Top Grape To Meet You, and Essence Let’s Get Lost, Happy End, and Beijos de Brazil.

Once again my over-the-hill brush gave me some difficulties, but don’t worry, that problem will hopefully be solved soon!

    Dang, your flowers came out so nicely! My hands do not like to try creating flowers, they never come out right. LOL

    I love the flowers! And I am always a big fan of gradients, too. I’ll have to check that green Essence, it looks so pretty!
