Pink flowers on peach & brown - out of my comfort zone

 
 
 
I set out to swatch Catrice 520 Apropos Apricot (a colur that brings me out of my comfort zone) and review it, but I was a bit disappointed that it looked a bit streaky after the 2 coats, that the polish tells me to apply, but it did dry quickly. So I figured that the slightly metallic brown Essence James’s Favorite Brown from the Soul Sista collection would look nice on it, if I sponged it randomly. Then I painted baby pink flowers and added a few green leaves with acrylic color and finished with Seche Vite Top coat. What do you think…?
Jeg ville egentlig swatche Catrice 520 Apropos Apricot (en farve, der ikke rigtigt er mig) og anmelde den, men jeg var lidt skuffet over det noget stribede resultat jeg endte op med efter de 2 lag som lakken siger er nok. Men så tænkte jeg at den let metalbrune Essence James’s Favorite Brown fra Soul Sista kollektionen nok ville se pæn ud sammen med, så jeg duppede den på med en makeupsvamp i et tilfældigt mønster.  Derefter malede jeg nogle baby-lyserøde blomster og et par tilfældige blade med akrylfarve og sluttede af med en toplak, Seche Vite. Hvad synes du…?

  10. It's not like Catrice to make streaky polishes. Peach is definitely not my colour either, but you manage quite well to make it yours. Kudos for that! :)

  19. Apropos Apricot is not exactly my type of colour, but this is only my personal taste... I think you made it look much better adding the metallic brown on it... and then, there is a flower that makes everything adorable! :-)
