Candy Floral

Another day, another floral! Well, at least I'm predictable.

Recently I placed an order for a couple of Candy Lacquers: Licorice Allsorts and Summer Circus. When they arrived I knew immediately that I wanted to do a manicure with Licorice Allsorts. I thought it would be neato to do a floral pattern that mimicked the colors as the glitter.



I chose OPI My Vampire is Buff as a base (shock), but it didn't end up having the contrast that I expected against the lighter colors in the manicure. Still, in the right lighting, the neon would just pop. Isn't it strange how neon often is brightest in the shade?

The mix of colors is just the cutest! I think the black is totally important to the balance here. It is a nice anchor for the rest of the glitter.



I used the same technique for this floral as I did in my Rodarte dress tutorial, so be sure to check it out if you want to try this manicure yourself!
