I have seen so many cute sunflower manis and they just look so cute and summery so I decided to try a sunflower nail design of my own. This mani was done freehand and I feel like I am getting better at doing freehand. The possibilities are endless when doing freehand nail designs! I am going to let the pictures do the talking for this mani:
For this mani I did 2 coats of this mini Sally Girl polish which does not have a name on it... Two coats of this stuff was not fun. After putting on my base coat and the first coat of this I went back to do the second coat and the brush started taking off the first coat as I tried to gently stroke it on... it was useless, I had to let the first coat dry most of the way before putting on the second coat. Maybe it had something to do with the base coat but it was a pain in the butt.
Anyways, for the petals I used a striping brush from an art deco polish with Sally Hansen Insta-dri Lightening. The petals are not perfect but I feel like it makes it look more like a sunflower. Then using the same brush and WnW Sunny Side Up, I added some extra detail to the petals. For the centers of the sunflowers, I used Sinful Colors Nirvana and applied it with rounded brush. I coated the whole thing with SV as usual! The first 3 pictures are a more accurate representation of the true color of this polish.
