Graffiti Flowers

... was what BF called the flowers I have on my nails today.

And I tell you that if it wasn't for him, I would've actually wiped all my nails cleans, despite having spent somewhat around an hour and a half doing them.

I'm not completely convinced these are good but still... I hope you like them:




Can you see why BF called these graffiti flowers?
Don't know if because of the background or the flowers but either way...




I started off with two coats of It Style No.107, which got then saran wrapped with:
Perfect Lady No.22 (white)
Coral No.101 (metallic blue)
Golden Rose Nail Art No.103 (pink)




I then took my three stripers: Kiss SPA12 Black, Kiss SPA02 White and Golden Rose Nail Art No.103 to make the weird looking flowers you see on my nails.




I started with black, figuring out it would be much easier to then paint white on top than outline the petals.
On top of the white I did another layer of pink and finished with some black lines in the middle of each flower.
As you can see, I was a bit all over the place and, because I hadn't quite determined how I wanted the center, they all look different and some more horrid than others 
-.-'




My favourite? My thumb!
I think the saran wrap is cute, the petals look somewhat detailed and soft and the middle is the perfect accent rather than a smudged whatever.


Please comment down below if these also gave you the graffiti feeling and if you think they're a disgrace comment as well :)
(I'm so getting me some acrylic paints this weekend!!)

Have a great day and make it a happy one, sun or no sun - don't be a morning grumpy potatoe, like yours truly

You know I love you though ;)


Hugs & Kissies,

    1. Awww - that means a lot. Thank you so much! And although this mani is no big deal and far from perfect, I believe trial and error together with practice help a lot! So don't give up to thinking you could never do it ;)
