Pastel Floral

I’ve been pretty busy lately painting false nails for my new Etsy shop, but I finally sat down and did some nail art on my own fingers.  Despite the fact that the weather has finally cooled down in Southern California (it’s been like 90 degrees for the last two months), I wanted to do some spring flowers.

I started off with a base of OPI You’re So Vain-illa.  The leaves are done with OPI Life Gave Me Lemons (I’m obsessed with this color right now).  And the flowers were painted with a mixture of Color Club Holy Chic, Color Club Macaroon Swoon, China Glaze Sweet Hook, China Glaze Life Preserved (mixed with white), Essie Fiji, and Butter London Kip, with OPI How Great is Your Dane? for the centers.

These didn’t turn out exactly as I’d envisioned, but I really like the colors together!  I need to do some more nail art with Life Gave Me Lemons – I don’t have anything else like it, and I’m completely in love.  I might need a backup bottle.

  1. How’s the Etsy shop going, do painted nails actually sell?? I’ve thought of making some for like, our craft fairs around here, but I guess what’s holding me back from it is people’s nails can vary so much in size I don’t see how it would work.

    • I haven’t sold anything yet, but I’ve been getting a decent amount of views/favorites. I did a lot of research before I started, and there are a lot of sellers out there that seem to be selling a ton of them. My sister actually just asked to wear one of my sets, and I helped her file them down to fit. It’s really easy to file down the sides or shorten them to customize the fit. And the sets I got have twelve nails, so there is a good range for the fit, with minor alterations. I guess it’s similar to nail strips with the sizing. I’m hoping to sell some soon, but I actually really enjoy making them. And I think it’s a great way to get custom nail art without a big time or money commitment at a salon.

      • That’s good! And thanks for the answer lol, I hope things take off for you soon! I may have to make a few sets myself & try out one of the craft fairs end of this year & see what happens! Good luck to you!
