A while back I bought a whole bunch of stuff from the Born Pretty store, and one of the things that I bought were dried flowers. I finally tried them out in a manicure, and I’m sorry to say that I just don’t like them very much. I got only 5 of these blue flowers, so I used only one per accent nail. They look OK in the picture, but they were quite difficult to apply, and tore very easily, and as time went on, parts of them wore off. Since they are actual real dried flowers, they are also quite thick in the middle, and some had tiny little stems attached which caught on everything until they finally broke off. I put a large glob of top coat on each flower, and that helped a lot. In spite of everything, I really love these colors, but I think that next time, I’ll just paint flowers on my nails with polish.
For my accent nails I used OPI My Vampire Is Buff and while the last coat was still sticky I topped them with the dried flowers. I had to carefully push down the petals into the polish to make them stick and lay flat. For the rest of my nails I used OPI Dining Al Frisco, and I topped my pointer nail with OPI Polka.Com.
