Matte Sunflower Manicure

Allo polish Pals!
A late post from me but I'm just letting you know I am still alive! How are you all doing? Once again I ment to post a lot sooner but things have been upside down with my nails lately – I just hate everything I create at the moment... I get ruts like this and then I feel good about my ideas and manicures for a while. I'm looking forward to this being over with again so I feel good and have so many ideas again. I get so many idea's I notebook them all, add swatches and diagrams to remind myself. Then I go dry, boo. Anyway for today I have some not so good sun flower nails for you.
This is going to be the easiest manicure to explain! On all my nails I started with HM's 'Blue Metal' Matte metallic polish in two coats on all my nails (One of the gorgeous shades I won from Gelic a few months ago, go visit her blog – she's amazing :)  For most of the sunflower's I used the Oumaxi (Via SammyDress) acrylic paints but added a little of Model's Own's 'Gold Rush' around the black centrer of the flowers. I attempted to apply the dots in a spiral type formation but it just doesn't look that way... Perhaps if I only did one line of dots?  --- Another creation I hate, but I gotta stop doing like three manicures a day and hating them all so much... That's why I am posting this.

What do you think of this manicure; Do you think sunflowers deserve to me shiny or matte? Have you tried a sunflower manicure?
I'll see you guys later in the week with more posts. Time to get out from under my rock, I missed you all too much even if it was only four days!
Love
Ithi

    1. Thank you, lovely, Bubica! I should remember that, I can just be too quick to dismiss them sometimes! You certainly made me feel better about it <3 Because I planned to put the dots in spiral I made them so big but I think making them a little smaller would have been better too. Thank you so much, hugs back! xx
