Today I've got some more nail art for you! I'm ready for spring to arrive although the weather here has been anything other than springlike. It's like we're headed back for winter. So, I thought I could at least make spring arrive on my nails.
I really liked this! This design is not my own. I first saw it years ago in an unwatermarked photo with a pink china glaze polish. Then I found this youtube video from 2010 where she is talking about seeing that same photo, which she shows, then does a tutorial based off it.
I decided I wanted to go yellow to really brighten up the manicure. It's China Glaze - Solar Power. The black and white is just acrylic paints. So, originally I had planned to do it on all nails. Then I started by totally screwing up my index finger which I had to redo. So, I figured maybe just an accent finger? The ring finger worked out pretty well and as I wanted to wear these to work, I chickened out and decided to quit while I was ahead.
When I was a kid in Quebec, my Nana had a huge field of milkweed by her house and the Monarchs would come and land on the milkweed in almost a blanket. It was amazing. Year after year. Sadly, I don't think I've ever seen a Monarch here in BC.
Here's a shot of Solar Power by itself. You can actually see the subtle shimmer in this one.
So, what do you think?
'Til next time,
