I have week #19 for the 52 Week Pick N Mix Challenge. The promps this week are Flowers and/or pale blue. I decided to combine them and do both. I will say I wore this one for awhile, loved it! We have had up and down weather in Missouri this week and these nails were just a pick me up.
My first decision was what to have for the base. I really like Sinful Colors' Cinderella. Cinderella is a light blue with pink-orange shimmer. But Cinderella is also pretty sheer and I didn't have the patience for 3-4 coats.
That is where Ozotic 751 came into play. It has a similar blue tone but also has a slight pink duochrome and I was hoping that the pink might show just slightly through the one coat of Cinderella.
And I know you are muttering, "she did what?. Yep, I put a cheapie ($1.99 at Wall-mart) on top of Ozotic and it got me the look I wanted.
I hand painted parts of flowers with my Molotow white acrylic pen. I like just having parts of the flowers coming in from the edges. I have always likes when things are coming and going from the canvas edges and I guess nails are no different.
Color Club's Blue Beaded added some darker blue and some textural interest. Blue Beaded is an interesting polish. It's not really a glitter and it does seem to have micro beads suspended in a clear base.

That's it for this round. So until next time, take care.
