PCFC - August 15th - Sunflowers

Hello my nail polish friends!

Today I have the Sunflower mani challenge from the Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge, and I don't mind saying that I was pretty happy with this one. The flowers are all free hand in polish. I'm noticing many nail artists like to use acrylic paint on top for the actual nail art so I'm going to hit up Michaels or JoAnns soon and see what it would take to get my hands on some small amount of acrylic paint and experiment with that. Any tips or thoughts on that? Which do you prefer, nail polish or acrylic paint?
For this one, I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors in Pink Forever, which went on really well.
One coat of Pinky Glitter, which surprisingly, I love.
Then I used Sally Hanson in Mellow Yellow for petals, Sinful Colors Nail Art in Worn Before and the brown is Essence Legends in the Sky I Am A Viator.
