This is one of my favourite colour from the OPI Shrek series - What's with the Cattitude?

I used this lovely light blue as a base and sponged on some white and dark blue nail polish.



 Using a combination of 2 light blue, 1 yellow and 1 white acrylic powder, draw a 5 petal flower.

 

Draw a 3 petal flower on top of the existing flower.

 

 Using acrylic paint, draw some lines across the lighter blue petal and dots on the darker blue. I've also added a silver rhinestone in the center to make it look brighter.

 

Repeat the same flower pattern on the ring finger. I've also made a white bow on the pointer.

 

Add some silver, and blue rhinestones randomly on the other finger nails.

 

Complete! Don't you think the flower patterns look like patchwork ?

 

 

 

The bricks are going up fast at my new house!

Hi Danielle, yes I am building. It's so much work planning and choosing materials. I can't wait to move in. Hehe. Doesn't the nail polish match the sky blue in my photo? I love the colour.

Hi Violet building a house is so fun but stressful at the same time. I think I've grown a few White hairs since building started. ;)

Thanks Katrina. I like those flowers too. I've already taken this design off but have kept the acrylic flowers as they came off intact hehe.

i always like to stare at acrylic petals before they're top coat-ed, just cant stand the 'powdery' cuteness, haha.. forgive my sillyness.. :p
Oh, no white hairs!!
well, i have 1 or 2 though, too much on mobile and lap top? haha....

Hehe I understand what u mean. I always like to touch it before putting top gel on the acrylic. As for my White hairs, I think it's due more to stress than anything else.

Lovely !

I would like to try 3D acrylic, but i don't know if i should do it direcly over the polish or if i can apply a top coat first or if there is something to do to make it stick better ?
You would be a great help ^.^

Hi Maya, I usually apply it onto my nails after I have painted them and applied top coat. The top coat do not help make them stick better. The actylic itself sticks to the nail very very well after it's dried.
