Here (finally) is my Girly Girl Challenge entry #6. Day 6 was, Who Inspires You? Show some love to your favourite female role model by creating gorgeous nails in their honour.
So like many of the ladies in this challenge, I chose my Mom. I thought about choosing something different just for some variety, but, when it comes right down to it, she's inspired me most in my life.
So, these nails are for her...
My Mom really likes both Sunflowers and Ladybugs so I figured, why not both?
This is China Glaze - Smoke and Ashes with Acrylic paint freehanded on. The Ladybug is China Glaze - Red Pearl.
I had two sources of inspiration for this: A metal garden decoration I just bought for my Mom of a Sunflower with a Ladybug on its leaf and an old copy of Painting Magazine from July/August 1994! It featured a black watering can with Sunflowers on its cover.
I was really thrilled with how this turned out as this was basically how I'd envisioned it.
Please check out what the other lovely ladies participating came up with. Most, if not all, are up now. The next round starts tomorrow!
ETA: I've swapped some of these photos out for new ones. I wasn't happy with how dark those other ones looked.
'Til next time,
