Day 14: Floral #31DC2015

Hey there everyone! :) Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Today's theme is probably my favorite theme for nails period. As some of you may know I love floral manis. They are so fun to do, and they are ones that I love to look back on. They take more time than you would expect since they have a lot of detail, but when you are done it's so worth it. With all of that being said I think it's time to look at my favorite mani of the challenge so far.

These nails were inspired by a fall floral I found on Pinterest. They aren't an exact match by any means but I'm still happy with the outcome.

There is a little side by side for you! ;) I had SOO much fun painting these. I love seeing florals like these on Instagram so doing one my self was just really really fun. One of my favorite nail Instagramers would have to be Wondrously Polished and she does the best florals in this style so I feel like knowing she can pull them off made me give this intimidating look a try. :) I took a lot of pictures of this mani just because they are so fun. Plus I would consider this my first "fall" look! It's hard to get into the whole fall vibe when it's upper 80's to 90's, but I'm working on it. ;)

For the base of this art I used 2 coats of  China Glaze Call of the Wild. One before I added the art it looked so dark it could of been considered black if you didn't know any better. The art really brought the color to life.

I think this design would look great with a Marsala base as well! You all know I am so loving Marsala this year! For sure my favorite darker color. I think I'm going to try and pull out some of my darker polishes and start using them, hopefully it will get me in a fall mood. :)

See what I mean? I had a major photo shoot for these! I'm just so happy the photos turned out! Usually if I really like a mani that is the one that doesn't show up in photos that well. Thankfully this time that wasn't the case here. Even the colors showed up as their true colors. :) 

One last picture, and up close at that! Here you get to see a bit more of the details! So what do you all think?! Would you wear this look this fall?!

Also I would just like to take a minute and say thank you! Last week here on the blog we hit 10K views and this weekend I hit 10K followers on Instagram. That's just crazy to think 10,000 people want to see my nails, my hobby! It's just so neat, and I really do appreciate every comment and like! It makes me want to keep getting better! Plus the nail art community is just great to be apart of! So many talented people and so much inspiration out there! Thank you so much! I have some really neat things coming for everyone, I can't wait!

Happy Painting!
