Goodbye Summer Nailart

Hola niñas! Como han estado? Espero que muy bien en este día en que ya nos vamos despidiendo del verano. Por eso hoy les traigo un nailart bien alegre para despedir los días de sol con toda la más buena onda. Usé de base un color azulito KOH que me envío una amiga y Amarelo Sol de Colorama. Luego hice las margaritas con un pincel y un punzón usando esmalte blanco (Fingerpaints Papier Mache) y el mismo amarillo que usé de base. En mi dedo índice hice un pequeño estampado con Konad Special White y la plaquita BM 419. Espero les guste :)
Hello guys! I hope you're doing well on this the first day of spring for you. For me it's the last day of summer so I decided to bid it farewell with a bright and colorful mani.
I started with a coat of OPI Natural Nail Basecoat. As a base I used a new Koh polish a dear friend sent me. It's a lovely baby blue color (I couldn't find a name on the bottle), it's a very lovely color and the formula was also great, it was opaque in 2 medium coats. On my accent nail I used Colorama Amarelo Sol as base, it's a bright yellow creme with a squishy look, kinda like the cross of a creme and a jelly. It was opaque in 3 coats, but I had to be careful not to drag it or I'd get bald spots.
Then I doodled some daisies using a nailart brush and a white polish, Fingerpaints Papier Mache. My nailart skills suck, but this is a fairly easy thing to do and -I think- the irregularities add something to it. On my accent nails I stamped a full nail pattern with the BM 419 plate and Konad Special White.
I toped it all with OPI Top Coat and some drying drops (I'm impatient heh). I'm really happy with how this turned out, combining freehand nailart with stamping. My favorite part of this mani is the baby blue polish, it's lovely and I can see myself using it many more times in the future.

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a lovely spring! :)
