I don't find them specially beautiful but the fact that they're kinda fluffy headed flowers make tem cute and after seeing this pattern over by Print & Pattern, I knew Chrysanthemums were the way to go ;)
(Thank you to wonderful Lindsey from Wondrously Polished for introducing me to the page - tons of inspiration!!!)
Anyway, the look I was going for was more vintage-y than cute, so I changed the colours a bit ;)
So what do you think? Does this strike you as vintage-y? ;)
I started bby applying two coats of my newly bought Kiko Tangerine (No.482).
I know lately all you've seen is Kiko around here, but I got so many pretty coloursssss!
And I can't just swatch them and be content, right? I've got to have my nail art ;)
Anyway, back on track: this gorgeous polish was a complete surprise to me.
My skin tone is rather orange-y on its own and I always thought shades such as this wouldn't look good on me. So you can imagine my surprise when I applied it and fell in total utter love, right?
Plus, this is an easy 1/2 coater with an incredible fast drying time and gorgeous shine (this swatch has no topcoat).
I then chose dark blue, turquoise and light blue for the Chrysanthemums, in hopes of a vintage, floral wallpaper pattern kind of thing.
And I think it did the deal! I'm so obssessed with these! hahaha :)
And now a close up, just because when I showed BF these he said they looked like blueberries (hahaha!).
What do you think? I know they're far from perfect but I'm happy enough I managed a pattern like look at all haha :)
Don't forget to tell me all you think about this one: the polish and the pattern and how I succeeded (or not ;)) - hope you're enjoying Flower Week so far :)
Have a wonderful evening everyone <3
