In one of the groups I'm a member of, flowers is the theme this month. "Vintage flower" was the theme last week, and "vintage" is the challenge in a different group this week. So I'll show you the rose, lilly, and daisy nails I made later. I must admit that I didn't know what "Vintage flowers" was until I saw the examples and videos we were given. I'll include the video tutorial made by xoJahtna, that helped and inspired me, at the end of the post.
What I did:
For these "Vintage Flower" nails, I applied Deborah Lippmann Blue Orchid, and made the flowers with acrylic craft paint and a toothpick. I used Seche Vite top coat. After a while I added silver holographic glitter; INM Out The Door Northern Lights Top Coat Silver.
Some photos are with holo glitter and some are not. It rained constantly the first day, but I got some photos without rain the second day, and then, to my surprise, the sun came back. So I hope you are ready for many photos! ♥
I was inspired by this video tutorial made by xoJahtna:
The plan was to do exactly what she did. But because of thunder and lightening I had to turn everything off, so I couldn't look at it when I struggled and had mixed the colors to much...
Nearly ready, before top coat:

I hope you like this nail art. Did you notice that I didn't tell you which flower this was supposed to look like? LOL.
If you have any tips or tricks or favorite acrylic paint, I'll be very happy.
