31DC2013 - 14 - Flowers

Hey everyone!

Ok, I hope I am not putting myself out there on the 'crazy limb', but how many of you are internal debaters? (hah.. I really wanted to put master instead of internal, but I didn't allow myself to, you're all welcome!) Probably a good number of us are.. but.. I literally argue with myself in my head.. normally it is all legitimate kinds of things.. but, ok, a lot of times it is about nail polish and/or nail art. This was one of those moments. I was like 'ooh, day 14, flowers - roses, done!' 'no, wait, you do roses A. LOT. why not do something different?' 'uhh, it will be different - I will use different colours.. dummmmb' 'no, using different colours isn't good enough.. something not roses' -silence- -mouth breathing?-

After listening to that jerk voice in my head, I took to pinterest to look up flower nails.. roses, all over the place! I could feel my eyes trying not to cry. Then.. I stumbled across a photo.. and I quite liked the idea. The photo lead me to THIS POST and that post lead to these nails that I am about to share.


I still haven't decided if I like them or not. I'm mad about my black nail polish being so thick. Sigh. Time for a new bottle of Orly Liquid Vinyl. Anyways.

I used OPI My Vampire is Buff as my base, then I went in with China Glaze Burnt Buns, China Glaze Sugar High, China Glaze Riveting, China Glaze Creative Fantasy, China Glaze Sexy in the City, China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise, and Orly Liquid Vinyl.

I just.. don't know. I like the idea of them.. maybe I will have to attempt this again once the challenge is over and really wear it and see how I feel about it.

After taking the photographs, I was like 'should have gone with the roses' - but, I am glad that I stepped outside of my comfort zone, even if I am unsure of how I feel about the whole thing.

See you all again tomorrow!!
