End of Summer Blooms

A One Stroke mani that actually took many strokes.  This time at the request of JQ of  Frippery Digits I used OPI's I Eat Mainly Lobster as my base color.  It's a beautiful warm coral with a hint of shimmer to it. A perfect end of summer shade in my opinion.
I think my flowers look a bit like the real pressed flowers that are pretty popular at the moment.  I then used a peach and orange acrylic paint to create them.  The centers are done with a tiny liner brush in a brown/black mixture.  I think my ring and middle fingers turned out the best, they remind me of the pressed flowers you can get.  Anyway, not a lot more to say about this so I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading, until next time, have a lovely one.
