Vintage Glitter Floral with Silly Bee's Chickadees
In today's post, I continue to play around with the technique of matching floral nail art to a glitter polish. I first tried this in my Candy Floral and loved the effect; I was happy to see a few of you guys trying it out as well! It's a great way to break up a nail art manicure while still keeping things cohesive. Today's glitter floral features Silly Bee's Chickadees Blueberry Smith Cocktail. Read on for further details about this nail art!
The base for this manicure is, unsurprisingly, OPI My Vampire is Buff.
Then, for the floral nails, I freehanded some medium sized flowers on using China Glaze Fade Into Hue and added white centers with Essie Blanc. The remaining negative space was filled up with dots of Zoya Neely.
Of course, the glitter nails show one coat of Silly Bee's Chickadees Blueberry Smith Cocktail. This mix of blue and periwinkle glitters is accented by satin green and white glitters. It applied evenly and with nice glitter density... definitely a winner!
I love the delicate vintage color palette of this glitter, and I think it translated brilliantly to nail art. Isn't the matchy effect fun?
What do you think about these glitter florals? Would you try one out for yourself?
Silly Bee's Chickadees polishes are available via Etsy. You can also keep up with the brand on Facebook and Instagram.
