Nail Art Challenge: Day Seven: Flowers

Day seven! Wow. Time is really flying isn't it? Here's where we are on the ten day challenge:

Flowers! I love flower nail art because there are just so many directions you can go. I usually stick with the usual five-dots-and-one-dot-in-the-middle flower,  but I wanted to try something out of my comfort zone today. And so I give you: My flowers!

Honestly, I'm not sure if there are even any flowers out there that look like this. But oh well, it couldn't be perfect.

I had a little smudging on the polka dots on the pinky - I'd started out with them as leaves, but I didn't like how they looked, so I attempted to turn them into polka dots. If I did this design again I would make the entire background green with the flower on top.

I started out by making three little petals with the dark pink on each finger. I painted with a lighter pink on top of that, added a little more of the darker pink, and outlined everything with black. I also added some yellow dots for the center of the flower because I just felt like it was missing something.

I feel like the tea bag nail patch on my finger was really noticeable in this design. I tried covering it up with a skin-toned polish but it didn't work all that well *sigh*

So for this design I used:
Base coat: Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
Dark pink: Sinful Colors - Boom Boom 
Light Pink: OPI - Steady as she Rose
Black: Sally Hansen - Black Heart
Yellow: Sally Hansen - Lightening
Green: Essie - Navigate Her
Top coat: Sally Hansen - Strengthening top coat
