Golden Flowers

I did warn you that Snowed In was my newest favorite base for nail art.  Here is one more manicure that uses it, after this we'll find something new to use for a bit.  
 They say that practice make perfect, I'm pretty far from perfect, but I am becoming more comfortable with one stroke painting on my nails.    Even working on my right hand is becoming easier and looking better.
This time around I used a metallic gold and black paint to do some simplistic five petaled flowers.  The color matches an antique fan that I inherited from my mother.  She got it in Japan years before she even met my dad.
Give me another year or so and maybe I'll be able to do some of the amazing nail art like I see done in some of the other blogs and on YouTube.  You never know, meanwhile I'll keep practicing.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Until next time, take care.


  1. Really like this design. Gorgeous :)

    @ Laura, I appreciate that, I don't think anyone gives themselves credit for their talent, but I'm happy that people enjoy my work.
    @ Anutka, thank you, I really like the way the black and gold came out on this. I'm going to have to try it again.


I really do appreciate your comments and I try to respond to all of them either directly via email or here in the comments section if you're set to "no reply".
