Freehand flowers..............

These flowers were inspired by some hand-made pottery I have, and an old jumper - both have a dark blue background with bold white flowers with yellow centres. The pottery has a lot of black line work too.

Since it's UK Indie Month, I used Nelly Polish Night Sky for the base; this is a super deep blue shimmer. I painted the petals freehand win Zoya Jacqueline, added the centres with Bourjois Sunny Sunday. When the flowers were fully dry (quite a long time, since I'd painted thickly), I added the line details with a Barry M Nail Art Pen in Black.

I love the way this turned out! I've been wearing it for a few days now, but sadly it's starting to look battered at the tips and grown out around the cuticles, so I'll have to change it :(

A few macros of the individual nails.............  I really like the contrast between the holo shimmer of the base and the opaque flowers.
