Gosh there are a lot of different polishes in this mani! I was quite excited about Galaxy day, but I think it’s a mani that I’ll definitely have to try again. I did like how these turned out, and they were a lot sparklier in real life, but after doing them, I think that less would’ve been more.
I have a soft spot for these patterns. Tribal print manis were an early favourite of mine when I started to get into nail art and I haven’t done one in what seems like forever! My original intention was to keep it a simple two colour pattern, but I added Inglot 204 to Riveting because I just can’t help myself with that combination and it ended up being quite blingy with the flakies and the sparkle and the blue pattern on the top!
I felt like doing something a little different for flower day and I ended up with these odd looking blobby poppies hanging out on my nails. They were deceptively easy to do; I just used a big dotter to make some red petals on the top half of my nails, used a striper brush to give them a stem each and make the base of the flower, then I used a nail art brush to add a bit of random grass.
I actually did this manicure over a week ago, but I thought that today would be an appropriate day to post a poppy manicure because it’s Remembrance Day here in Australia.
