Rilakkuma and friends in paradise

Hello there!! Hope you're having a great Sunday evening before the long week begins. This here was my birthday manicure (it was a couple of days ago) as I love Rilakkuma and I like doing something a lil' special for my birthday nails. In March I did a Rilakkuma manicure which ended up being one of my favourites of the year. Since then I've been a bit obsessed, I was fortunate enough to go to Japan this summer and there was a Rilakkuma store... You can imagine I went a bit wild. This design was inspired by a Rilakkuma top I now own.

So Rilakkuma is here with his buds Korilakkuma (basically meaning child relax bear, I had to look it up) and Kiiroitori (yellow bird) in a Hawaiian situation. I do really like this design though I was disappointed as I think I could've painted this WAY cuter but I also think pictures made this mani look better than it is. This obviously calls for me to do another Rilakkuma design (and show my Rilakkuma haul haha :P). I really like Kiiroitori here, the little flower and the grass skirt :')

I kind of did a "syrup gradient"(?) with Go Deeper than got a white base and painted the details on colour by colour. I like the flowers in this design, they highlight the Hawaiian theme and show the "gradient".
