Vintage Flowers - freehand nail art - inspired by xoJahtna


Hello everyone!




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:

    1. Thank you! ♥ It was thick before top coat, so I'll try to dilute the paint next time.

    1. Thank you! ♥ But please don't be jealous. This technique allows you to not paint perfect, but it still looks good.

    1. Thank you! The shop is called Panduro Hobby. There is a link above. I bought a set of 12 colors when it was on sale last year. But you can probably find cheaper paint in other arts and crafts stores. And I don't know if this is the best acrylic paint for nail art. This is just a plain acrylic paint to use on canvases.
