Lily Likes It

Okay...let me explain the title!  I asked the hubby to name this design because I was blocked.  We have one house plant, a Peace Lily.  This plant is like a child to us!  Her name is Lily, the hubby talks to her, feeds her and loves her! :)  Due to the flower design of this mani he felt that Lily would like it, hence the title! :)

When I started this mani I had a specific design in mind, however I made some changes along the way.
First, 2 coats of Revlon Slate Blue and China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy.  This blue is such a pretty color.  I can only describe it as a creamy blue with a hint of gray.  It is also opaque in 1 coat!  Flip Flop is a bright, neon pink. I would say that its a neon, pastel pink because it does have a softness to it.  Unfortunately you cannot see this in the pictures because of my camera and the lighting!  FF also does not dry shiney.  It looks kind of rubbery. 


Next I added a stamp using BM11 and China Glaze White on White.  I was going to add the same stamp out the bottom of the nail using a pink polish but changed my mind, as you will see.


I already knew that I was going to add colored centers to the flowers using Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow and Wet'n'Wild Candy-licious/Rose bonbon, however I decided to add dots instead of another stamp of flowers.



Next, I added a coat of NL.



I topped the mani off with 2 coats of NYC.

  11. OK seriously??? Your husband thought the plant would like this? That's just plain weird!! I own two peace lilies and it is said if you talk to them it does them good-but maybe your husband needs a pet? HAHAHA!! I love this mani!
