Pink warning: Hanging blue/white flowers on bubblegum pink

Pink warning - this mani is for lovers of nail art on bubblegum pink only!
Pink advarsel - denne manicure er kun for dem, der er vilde med nail art på bubblegum pink!
 
The base color is China Glaze Dance Baby and the flowers I painted with acrylic colors. I used a thin striper for the stems and the flowers are not traditional one-strokes, I did them with a normal and uncut 000 brush. First I dipped the side of the brush in the cream white and the point in the blue, and then I pressed the side gently down to create each petal. It was way more difficult than to do normal one-strokes because it’s difficult to load the brush correctly. As usual I top coated with Seche Vite.
I’m not unhappy with the flowers, a bit on a few stems, but IRL they did not look as thick as on these macro shots. Personally I would have preferred a different ground color, but it’s just me, feeling a bit too old for girly pink LOL, this mani would look great on so many other girls

Grundfarven er China Glaze Dance Baby og jeg malede blomsterne med akrylfarve, men de er ikke malet med den traditionelle one-stroke metode. Jeg brugte en tynd striper til stilkene og en ubeskåret 000 pensel. Jeg dyppede først siden af penslen i den creme hvide og derefter spidsen i blå, hvorefter jeg med let hånd forsigtigt pressede penslen ned for at skabe hvert blomsterblad. Det viste sig at være langt mere vanskeligt end at male normale one-stroke blomster, det var svært at ”fylde” penslen korrekt med farve. Som sædvanligt lagde jeg Seche Vite toplak.
Jeg er ikke utilfreds med blomsterne, nogle at stilkene er lidt klodsede, men i virkeligheden så det OK ud. Personligt ville jeg havde valgt en anden grundfarve, men det er bare mig der føler mig lidt for gammel til piget lyserød, denne mani ville se rigtigt sød ud på så mange andre ;)

    1. Tak, Rainbowify Me, nej det ville jeg heller ikke, den er lidt for pink uden noget til mig - og jeg vil nok også synes bedre om den, når det bliver sommer :)

  7. Maria, these flowers are beautiful!
    Well, I would maybe try with white or something like light blue as a background colour, but I also think that this combination with pink is more cheerful, pink gives more life to this manicure! :-)

  10. Lol, I love your pink warning- except maybe it should be another kind of warning, like "Warning- Awesome Artistic Ability Ahead". I guess that would make it a quadruple "A" warning. ;) Beautiful manicure, as always!
