Today is another edition of The Beauty Buffs, and is also day 16/31 of the Oh Mon Dieux Nail Art Challenge. Even I couldn’t bear the thought of doing two manicures and taking them off, just to post 🙁 so today I have combined both prompts (Beauty Buffs: Floral; #omd2nails: Glitter Placement) and I’m wearing this design to work!

I wanted to try something I’ve never done before so I worked with a neutral palette for the floral accents on my pinky and ring finger.  I chose five essie polishes: urban jungle, cocktails and coconuts, sand tropez, case study and fierce, no fear.

Then for the glitter placement I chose some tiny purple/pink diamond glitter and placed the glitter carefully one by one with a toothpic on top of sticky fast dry top coat. I then added a layer of topcoat over the glitter to ensure it stays.

I love the way the pink glitter looks against the neutral floral design. I think the floral design would look beautiful as throw pillow cases on my off-white sofa.

What are the other Beauty Buffs saying about FLORAL?

Until tomorrow,

    I love the subtleness of your flowers and well done for the glitter placement, I know it’s time consuming :).
