Frosty Flowers ~ Pigments and One Stroke Attempt

Allo polish Pals!
How are you doing, are you nearly ready for Christmas?! I've been having a great time here in England, it's been great to see my family. Today I got to spend the afternoon with my three year old niece who is such a sweetie! Since I have hardly any nail polish with me I decided to try some more acrylic paint flowers. I have to say that I'm hit and miss on this manicure. In real life it looks interesting and quite pretty when the gleequin hit the light but in the photo's where they don't shine much it looks rather dull. I'd like to have seen this with a matte top coat.. but yeah, I forgot to pack that too...
On all my nails I started with two coats of Rimmel's 'Blue Eyed Girl'. I then used a mixture of blue and purple eye shadow pigments on top of the wet polish. I attempted some 'one stroke' flowers using white and acrylic paint, added dots to the center of each one and finally placed a few silver gleequin's in around the flowers. On my index and ring finger I added a simple tiny flower.

What do you think of this manicure? Success or disaster? I'm having to try and think of very creative ideas since I lack the appropriate tools!

Have a great day!
