Girly Girl: Delicate and Elegant!

For some reason I had a really hard time with this challenge. I think it's 2 main reasons. 1) I had sooooo many ideas! and 2) I'm new to nail art and a lot of my ideas were techniques I either haven't used before (which is everything except tape and a doting tool) or had no idea how to realize my idea! I decided to try painting flowers on my nails which was kind of a fail. (Although, it's my first time ever doing this and I should probably give myself a little slack! lol).

I LOVE flowers and french manicures so I wanted to combine the two as I thought it would be fitting for this challenge. (unfortunately my flowers look like child's play rather than elegance. oh well.) However, I'm fond of my french-inspired mani with dots! :) I love the pink glittery shimmer. As mentioned before, I am a dance teacher and my young students like princesses. My nails make me think of the fairy-tale princess Cinderella! So here is the result...

Polishes- Ulta: Sweet Nothing (2 coats), SC: Glass Pink (1 coat over the Ulta polish), OPI: Give Me the Moon, and OPI: Pompeii Purple. SC has glitter shimmer and this mani wouldn't be the same without it! The 2 OPI polishes have a blue/purple iridescence to them which is why I decided to use them together.

I'm loving the other mani that people are coming up with for this challenge! Let's see what else is new!
