I made a wonderful discovery the other day - actually three wonderful discoveries! The first one was a challenge that's done on Fridays (surely I can manage once a week?!?-yeah yeah I know you've heard it before) with girly themed nail art challenge, and the second one is that the source of this particular challenge is from two really cool blogs called Something About Everything, and Mani's By Moore. Here is the layout of the challenge: (this is taken from Something About Everything)

So here is my first manicure for this challenge.
I used two coats of Cult Nails Devious Nature as my base, then with some white and red acrylic paint mixed with Devious Nature I did a one stroke technique to make the flowers. A bit of yellow and green acrylic paint for the center and leaves, then I topped it off with a dab of Rainbow Honey's Sakura Matsuri for glitter effect, and sealed it up with a one good coat of Wicked Fast top coat.
I also entered this in the Cult Nails Nail Art Contest :-)
