Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is flowers. I decided to recreate some poinsettia nail art I’ve had on my Pinterest board for AGES. The original look was by Lacquerstyle. I know poinsettias are associated with Christmas in some areas but they don’t really have that association where I’m from so I decided to do them now anyway. I started off with a base of Essence Me & My Ice Cream Icylicious. The flowers were done with acrylic paint and I added a few microbeads to finish off the look. These definitely would be good for Christmas with the red, green and gold! They are pretty for any time of the year though and you can always change up the colours to make a more generic floral look. What do you think? In previous years, I did freehand acrylic flowers and microbead flowers. My freehand flowers might not have looked much like flowers but keep in mind this was probably the first time I ever did freehand on my nails! My microbead flowers though, well for me they win for today. I’ll always be proud of that particular look. Which is your favourite?
