The Lazy Days Of Summer Challenge: Day 8-In The Garden

I am on day 8 of The Lazy Days Of Summer Challenge! Today's theme is "In The Garden".  


First I used Julep "Leah" as my base. Then, using some small nail art brushes, I "smooshed" some layers on to create sunflowers:


Here are the colors I used for this look:


I have just a few more days left to complete in the challenge, so look out for those posts!

  11. You know what you managed here? You've created mini Van Gogh masterpieces on each nail! Seriously, every time I think you can't possibly top your own creative genius, you pull another rabbit out of that hat! Kudos, my friend -- this is just so pretty & it made me smile!
