I would've loved to have possibly ventured into hand painting a watercolor flower as an accent nail instead of the accent I did, but I have never done nail art before. I'm not into stamping or nail art but attempting a simple flower on one accent nail is something I can see myself trying in the future once I get better.
Because I was timid, I chose the flower-named polish, Delphinium. She is a limited edition Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure color that was part of the 2011 Tracey Reese collection. As you probably guessed, it is discontinued but I have found bottles on eBay (and where mine was purchased at Christmas) so I'm sure there are still some floating around. They may re-promote this color in the future, since I heard they recently did it with Green Tea...which I am obsessively trying to find!
The formula on Delphinium was easy to work with and I used two coats. It's no secret that my love for a good dusty lavender/ lilac is alive and well...
For the accent nail I used CND Effects in Gold Sparkle. This polish is similar to Essie As Gold As It Gets but the flakies are much smaller and a lighter shade of gold. This was also 2 coats and was still very subtle on the nail.
Again, be sure to check out the other participants of the Spring Fling Challenge listed at ECKlipsed by color and Tuxarina
Thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow for day 3!
