#WNAC2015 - August / Summer: Simple Abstract Floral Nails (+ Tutorial!)

Sunday, August 16, 2015
Hi everyone!

I have my second post for the #WNAC2015 (Weekly Nail Art Challenge) for August to share with you today.

The prompt last week was Magenta & Navy, so I paired some really simple, abstract florals with the inspiration colors, and I'm really happy with how they turned out.  You can view the tutorial at the end of the post if you'd like to learn how to recreate them! :)

I must say, I really love painting abstract or more "artistic / messy" florals like this.  It's so much fun, and of course a lot quicker than my extremely detailed ones.  For this design, I wanted to keep it very simple, so I only used 3 polishes plus the base color, and only jelly polishes for a more artsy appearance.  I think this is probably the most simple floral I've ever done, and maybe one of my favorites!

I always pair my lips with my nails, and I love a good bright lipstick, so I went with one of my favorites, Lime Crime Utopia.  It's the perfect match, I think!  The rings are from Hautelook from a while back too. :)

Polishes used: The Body Shop Frosting Fancy (base), Crazy for Blue, and The Body Shop Green, and OPI Push & Pur-pull.  Brush: Kolinsky #00 from Winstonia Store
