Failure to float

30 Jul

With summer in full bloom, I thought it’d be nice to have a tranquil little nail art of water lilies.
My first obstacle was the fact that out of a hundred and so nail polishes in my collection, there wasn’t a light blue in sight! Oops! One quick mix-up later I was ready to go.
To mimick the shimmer of light hitting the water, I randomly dapped a blue-silverish metallic polish over the light blue base.

Next stop, create the big leaf. I used 3 colors of green and a bit of white to create some dimension. So far, so good!

Unfortunately, the lily itself was a whole different story.
Aiming for the typical bulb like shape, my lily ended up looking like a fried egg.
I could always class it as an “artistic interpretation”, but let’s face it… this one sunk like a brick 🙂
