Tropical Flowers + Delicate Base

Why hello there you lovely one!! I have nail art today!! Yay!! I had planned pink and yellow flowers but it ended up a bit differently. Floral nail art is some of my favourite and I rather like this one.

The yellow kind of got covered up. But I still like this, the orange and pink are nice together. Originally when I'd finished the design I was not a fan which led me to be irritated. Thankfully after wearing it for a day I grew to really like it. I love flowers!! And when they're in bright colours, flowers can do no wrong.

Base: Barry M - Prickly Pear and OPI - Pirouette My Whistle
Pink: Barry M - Fuchsia
Orange: Essie - Fear Or Desire
Yellow: Barry M - Lemon Ice Cream
The gradient before I added the detail was really nice and I was thinking of not adding the detail. But then it wouldn't have been complete. I'm glad I added the detail but it's a shame that yellow got covered up.
Green: Illamasqua - Nomad
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black
White: Lovely Me:Ex - Black
Darn macro for showing every flaw, I really didn't realize the white was stringing (if you get what I mean). In real life it's not there. I don't think it takes away too much though.

When I'd first finished the design the thing that I didn't like was how disconnected the bright flowers looked compared with the soft background. I thought I should've used a brighter colour. I did grow to like the delicate base as it makes the flowers stand out more but it shows how crucial base colour is.

Thank you very much for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day!!! :D


  1. So pretty! Love the flowers, especially the gradients on each petals! I can still see/sense the presence of the yellow polish there! So it's not fully covered up ;) Love the center details too! :D

    1. Thank you so much!! :D Hehe on some petals the yellow is still kind of there ;)

  2. I can see the yellow don't worry :p And I think that the background is okay with the flowers. It may be not the perfect background colour, but it's still really beautiful, the flowers are splendid. :)

    1. Haha it's still there, I grew to get used to the background but you're right, I personally think a bright purple would've been better. Thank you very very much!! :D
