Bright summer flowers

 
 
 
The base color is Catrice 400 Blue Cara Ciao and I sponged random areas with Catrice 520 Apropos Apricot. I painted the bright coral/salmon flowers with acrylic paint over the sponged areas, making it look a bit like they are on clouds. Finally I top coated with Seche Vite.
I wore this mani 2 days – it’s a real smurf nail blue, I’m happy I use base coat, should have used 2 coats.
Grundfarven er Catrice 400 Blue Cara Ciao og jeg duppede tilfældige områder med Catrice 520 Apropos Apricot. Jeg malede de koral/laksefarvede blomster med akrylfarve hen over de spongede områder, så de fik virkning som skyer. Til sidst lagde jeg min toplak, Seche Vite.
Jeg havde denne mani på i to dage – og denne blå giver virkelig smølfeblå negle på trods af base coat.

  3. det er helt naturligt at vi finder velbehag ved lige præcis denne farvesammensætning, da det er en komplementærkontrast...

  12. Like the drifts of clouds in the mid-ground on this one - looks like the flowers are floating through a wonderful blue summer sky (which is just peeking out here where I live now after a week of high fog in day and low fog at night - but I love our beachy fog in summer a whole lot - I don't take heat well)
