Water Lilies Edge

Hey ladies,

Today I have a mani refresh with L'oreal - Waters Edge, a Sally Hansen Chrome and plate BM08. Originally I wanted a floral pattern and was going to freehand a colourful one, but more on that in a bit.

Anyways, for this nail look I chose to stamp a pattern of multiple flowers on each nail, But once I applied the first stamp I liked the subtle yet elegant look of one stamp placed randomly. I applied the same look to the rest of my nails.

My sister said it reminded her of lily pads on water, and I think that is exactly what it looks like, an aerial shot of flowers scattered on a body of water.

Back to my first idea I had, the freehand flowers. I decided to try out this idea before applying it to my nails (on a fake nail). It came out alright and I planned on applying it to my ring fingers only, but it didn't come out so great. Below was my first attempt, I was inspired by Emerald Sparkled.

I will have to try the free hand flowers another time when I have some more patience lol

What do you think?


  1. I really like this color and it looks great with the stamp! It does remind me of a lily pad. LOL I tried to stamp last night and it was big fat FAIL.

  2. thanks :) aww what happened? what nail polish did you use to stamp with?


Don't be shy, I love reading your comments and feedback :)
