Gelish – Sunflowers!

Marilyn came over on Friday for some cheery nail art! She wanted something in blue, green or yellow and flowers for that summer feel, so I suggested sunflowers, and also recommended that she try Gelish for a more lasting manicure. She chose Gelish Seafoam as the base and I painted on sunflowers inspired by Rina’s Daisies design.

I had to do three coats of Seafoam to get full opacity. After that, I painted on the petals using yellow acrylic paint (mixed with a bit of brown) and dotted the centre of the flowers with brown acrylic paint. Finally, I added tiny black dots in the centre of the brown dots.

My other suggestion was to use a nude base with white gradation so that the flowers could be on the tip and would also show up well against the white tips… but I think this colour scheme also worked out well!

      Hmm, I reply to all comments, so maybe you are referring to email notifications when there is a reply to your comment? I think you would have to subscribe to that page for updates?
