Spring Challenge: Small Flowers & Lacquistry Gemini

It's Friday! Woo-hoo!! And day 3 of The Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge. ^.^ Today's Challenge was to create a manicure of small flowers. I jumped at the opportunity to use my brand new Lacquistry Nail Polish for this special assignment.

For my base coat, I used the gorgeous new Gemini by Lacquistry. Jenna REALLY outdid herself on this one, ladies. The holo was shimmering before I even had the first brushstroke finished!
Do you see what I mean? Pure gorgeousness!!
Then it was time to add the small flowers. I used It's So Easy by Stripe Rite in White to create the white, wispy petals on the flowers.
The lavendar rhinestones gave the mani a little extra bling. ^.^
Have you checked out Jenna's shop yet on Etsy? You can visit her by clicking here.

Here are the other lovely bloggers participating in The Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge. I'd love for you to see their work!~
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
Happy Lacquering! =)

  1. This is so pretty!!!! Great mani! The pedals almost dont really looks white though. And my white striper does that to me. It's never actually "white". Is yours white?

    1. Thanks, Anna! I wanted my white to mix in with the purple to look kind of wispy, so I used it when the purple was still tacky. To keep the white striper "white", make sure your base color is completely dry and you have enough white on the brush that you aren't dragging it (I used to do that all the time!). A quick coat of Out the Door over your base color would also speed up the process and help seal in the color before the white striper, too. Hope this helps. =) Good luck!!
