Playful Pink Floral Nail Art

I'm still here! Illness, work, and some other things have really been kicking my butt lately and eating up my blogging time, but I swear I'm still here. I have had a chance to do a bit of nail art, though, so that's something, right?

Today I have some freehand floral nails to share with you. I haven't done a great many floral patterns in my time as a nail blogger: not because I don't like them, but because I just don't have a lot of confidence that I can execute them well. I recently dug up some inspirational images that I'd saved, though, so I finally decided to take a shot at recreating one of them.

This pattern was heavily (like... almost exactly) inspired by this Shutterstock floral background. I just really loved the playfulness and casual-yet-pretty look of it. I went with a much less yellow base color, because yellow and I aren't friends, but other than that, I tried to be pretty faithful with my recreation.

Everything here is done with polish, even though I probably should have used acrylic paint for the brown to get finer control with my lines. Here's the full list:

I also painted (and photographed) my right hand! And strangely enough, I almost like the design on it better in some ways, even though it was done with my non-dominant hand. Go figure...

Even though florals and brown tones aren't my usual style, I'm really happy with how this turned out. I even had a better experience with My Vampire is Buff this time (I didn't care for it when I first tried it), so, yay! Maybe I'm just a better polisher now?

Thanks for looking!
