Hand Painted Floral Mani

Just a quick post for you guys today. It's my birthday (Woooooo!) and the festivities are beginning soon. But before I go, I thought I would show off this mani I did a few weeks ago.

Now if you have been following my blog up to this point, you know there are several things I am good at/enjoy doing. I LOVE stamping, I'm pretty good at gradients and I feel like I can brag about my water marbling. But alas, even Superman has his kryptonite.

Free hand painting. Although I love hand painted nail art, I find that sometimes it can be difficult to do.  It requires specific brushes, extreme precision for detailing, and a lot of patience. And lets not forget creativity!

So yes, it is my weakness. But as you can see here, here, and here, I have been practicing. And here is my latest free hand effort.

I was actually quite pleased with how this one came out which definitely inspired me to try some more freehand techniques. Practice makes perfect, right?
