When I saw this beautiful pattern by Charuca, I just knew I had to try it on my nails (and that I could possibly pass it off as "intricate"!) To get this look, I started with a base of Cirque Carpe Diem, and then using a nail art brush and a dotting tool, I made my floral pattern with Zoya Cole, Zoya Rocha, Zoya Tilda, and Zoya Ryan. I mattified my nails to make the design easier to see!
Although my freehand skills leave a bit to be desired, I absolutely love the color scheme of this manicure and I would love to revisit it! Maybe I need to trim my brushes so I can achieve more precise designs!? How do you find success in doing detailed nail art?
Anyway, I will hopefully be back on track with the challenge now, since the swatching rush has eased up (but don't worry, I will always have a ton of swatches for you guys!) Too bad an equally frightening theme is up next - geometric nails!! I will have a field day with those! At least I will be getting back into more serious nail art, which I have missed doing.
Here are the polishes I used. You can purchase the Cirque here and the Zoyas here.
