Hello lovelies!
How is everyone’s weekend going so far? My day will be spent doing laundry and packing, so I can leave for school tomorrow. Woo, fun…not really haha!
Anywho, onto the nails

Who can guess which blogger I chose to honor today?

Here’s what I used:
Okay, so if you couldn’t figure it out, I decided to recreate one of Debbie from The Crumpet‘s designs! I wouldn’t be doing this challenge if it weren’t for Debbie haha. I love how involved she is with all of her Facebook groups and the challenges that she runs. I also really admire her for taking a break when she needed to so she wouldn’t burn out completely. This whole blogging thing can get really stressful at times, and I think I realized from reading her posts about blogger burnout that everyone needs to take some time off at some point. I probably should take some time soon with this upcoming semester of college being my last….and the fact that I’ve been putting the blog before my homework….but you know, I don’t know.

Anyways, I remembered this floral design that Debbie painted a while ago and decided to recreate it. I used three coats of Friends Come In All Sizes as my base, because I don’t have a purple like the one she used. The flower petals were added on with Wisp and just the brush from the bottle. I added on a little dab of Jules for the centers and followed that with the Purple Panic polka dots. The leaves were the last thing to be added before I added a layer of HK Girl.

I like how these turned out, and it was nice to do a design where I wasn’t so worried about everything being perfect! I do wish I had used top coat in-between the base and my flowers because the color bled and turned my flowers purple. But regardless, these were fun to wear!
Thanks for reading guys!
