Wishing for more sun with this Sunflower Nail Art!

As promised, I've put together a Sunflowers manicure to share with you today. I used Essie's "In The Cab-ana" as the complimentary color to this mani, to give that blue sky effect. I used it as a sponge gradient on the tips of the sunflower nails as well. The Sunflowers were done with a combo of OPI "Need Sunglasses?" and Julep "Stella" (Rest In Pieces, the bottle broke on me :( ) with the centers of the flowers done using Essie's "Hot Coco" and "Lady Godiva". I couldn't get a good shot with my thumbs, but those were done with sunflowers as well...quite a time consuming mani, but so worth it!

Here's what happened to my lovely Stella:

Snapped right off :(
Hopefully Julep will hook me up with either a refund or another one...either way, Stella will surely be missed!

Hope this mani brings a little sunshine to you wherever you are today!

Happy Polishing!
