#52weeknailchallenge: inspired by fashion

I'm playing catch up again. You know when life happens I sometimes forget I have a blog. So this is last weeks prompt. And later this week I'll have this week's which is orange.

Just so you guys know... I am not very fashionable. I love my jeans and rarely wear dresses and stuff. So for this prompt I went to Google and hit search for fashion. Now, I can't remember if it was 2016 or 2017, but this specific year had loads of florals. Like flowers from top to bottom. Very scary.

I decided to keep it simple. I started with two coats of Tip Top jade in the shade (only because it was standing on my table) on my thumb and pinky. The rest of my nails have one coat. I only painted one coat because I was going to use decals.
In hindsight I should have used a lighter base, the darker base just makes the florals appear darker too. I also wanted to do one nail half and half, but I forgot.
I placed a rectangular gold stud that I got from Aliexpress on my middle finger when I top coated.
I kinda like how it turned out... And I keep telling myself to stop using full nail decals, but I never listen to myself.

What do you think? Would you wear my nails?

Thanks for reading!


  1. I would definitely wear your nails... or rather, the manicure, you can keep your nails attached to your fingers ;)
    I think it looks pretty, a flower-y top with green pants and a green shawl... yup, fashionable!

    1. Haha you so kind for letting me keep my nails! And thank you for thinking I'm fashionable.

  2. These are so beautiful! I think you handled the prompt very well!
