So as you have noticed the pattern we usually post TLR on Thursdays bi-weekly. Well this prompt we were all turds and super busy that we have all posted scattered rather than together like the intention of TLR. In any event this prompt was picked by Lesley @Misfitlesley inspired by the Tokidoki Unicorns that Frosso sent us last year. They came in these cute little boxes that you get a random one and surprisingly enough we all got different ones! Too stinkin cute!
My unicorns name is Dolce and I love him. I used OPI’s Going My Way or Norway? Then I hand painted on an angle Julep’s Carrie. For the sprinkles I hand painted on Opi’s Hey Baby and Cirque’s Tavern on the Teal. I painted the unicorn horn on my index finger using a nail art white. Finally I had a stamp of a small heart and I used Illamasqua’s Boosh and I hand painted the crossbones below it.
Isn’t Dolce too stinkin cute!
Make sure you check out all of the other Unicorns everyone got and their take on their little friends nails 😉
Friday has finally arrived,I feel like its been forever since I’ve posted.. 😦
The next day of the Challenge is flowers. I chose to do a real flower manicure. I found these beautiful little wild flowers by my work, Veronica.
I painted 2 coats of “Julep – Carrie” as a base before work this morning. I will warn and apologize now, in all of my pictures I have Top Coat and polish on my fingers!! ahh In any event, My husband and I picked fresh flowers on the way home from work today. I painted a little bit of top coat on each nail & pressed the flower down and topped with my “Orly Polymer Top Coat”. I purposely did not make the flowers all centered on my nails, some were in corners, some dead center, off-center etc. I loved doing this unique manicure.
Here is the final look:
Here is a closer look at my right hand:
And my favorite nail. I really loved the way this one came out:
This look was fairly easy, but I will be honest I have never worked with real flowers before, so I am not quite sure how they will ware. I am hoping that the Polymer keeps it well. I will only have the look on my nails for a few days anyway. I have to thank my husband for this awesome and beautiful idea! ❤
