31DC2016 Day 6: Violet with Flakies and Freehand

Hi everyone!

Today’s violet nail art isn’t as painstaking as yesterday’s, but it came out very well and I love it. I love violet (or purple, or whatever) and what better to combine it with than flakies and freehand accent nails?Painted Fingertips | Freehand and flakies over violet for the #31DC2016

I started off with a base of LA Girl Matte Plum and then added the flakie goodness with Darling Diva Time to make the Chimifuckingchangas. I added the freehand accents using acrylic paint.Painted Fingertips | Freehand and flakies over violet for the #31DC2016

I really love how my simple freehand came out here. It looks pretty striking and I’m glad I stuck with just accent nails as well. Painted Fingertips | Freehand and flakies over violet for the #31DC2016

Definitely a winner in my book – and aren’t those flakies gorgeous?Painted Fingertips | Freehand and flakies over violet for the #31DC2016

In previous years, I’ve done a textured criss-cross, freehand nails inspired by a notebook, and a simple glittery look.
