Hi everyone! This is Emily from The Lacquerologist! I am so excited to be here on Love for Lacquer today! =) I wanted to do something special for this guest post, so I decided to attempt an abstract floral pattern…I’m loving how it came out! Sort of retro and bohemian at the same time. I was cruising Pinterest (as always) and found this beautiful piece of artwork by Rachel Gresham Designs that completely inspired me! You can see the original piece [here]! Let’s check it out….
I used shades from the new OPI Euro Centrale Collection for this look! I started with two coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff, which I think is such a great base for nail art! I then used my dotting tool and the following shades to create the “flowers”: OPI Can’t Find My Czechbook, OPI My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours, and OPI I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw. I used Wet N Wild Wild Shine Black Creme to add the dots around the flowers and It’s So Easy StripeRite in black for the stems. I went in with my dotter and OPI Suzi’s Hungary Again! to add some decorative dots and that was it! My favorite top coat, Out the Door, sealed everything in to a high gloss shine.
So what do you think of this retro floral? I’m always looking for easy ways to use my dotting tools to create fun designs, and I think this was definitely a hit! =) Thanks for reading, and I hope you all enjoyed my guest post! If you want to check out more of my nail art and swatches, head over to my [BLOG] and [FACEBOOK]! I’d love to see you there! <3
