My inspiration was this gorgeous succulent pattern by Lindsay Nohl. I love the almost watercolored look of these, and I wish I could have represented the soft, faded colors better on my nails! Still though, it can be hard to translate specific details into nail art at times, and I feel good about the modifications I made to get this to work for nails.
I started with a white base, and then freehanded my plants on using four different colors.
China Glaze - Westside Warrior (olive green)
China Glaze - Fancy Pants (blue)
China Glaze - Grape Pop (purple)
China Glaze - Purr-fect Plum (burgundy)
I thought it would also be interesting to include my palette for this nail art. When I do nail art I work off of pieces of wax paper, and often when I finish a design I'll fold up the palette and save the clean outside for my next design. Unfortunately, I think I waste quite a bit of polish because of how quickly it dries. Oh well, such is the life of a nail artist I guess...?
A pinnable combination image, if you are into that sort of thing. :)
