Sparkly Silver Flowers on my Fingernails

So after having bright shiny Red on my nails, I was in the mood for a more subdued manicure this time.  I thought that I would make some flower decals in grey tones, it’s my most ambitious decal project yet!  First, I drew the outlines of the flowers on a piece of paper, and taped a piece of plastic sandwich bag over the drawing.  Then with clear nail polish, I painted four areas just a little larger than the flowers on the plastic, letting the polish dry for 10 or 15 minutes between each step.  I used It’s So Easy Stripe Rite in Black to made the outlines and OPI You Only Live Twice to carefully dot the center of the flower, I had to get just a little bit of bright color in there – lol!  Then I used OPI Skull & Glossbones and a very fine brush to make a small line up the center of each petal, and OPI Number One Nemesis to fill in the rest of the outline.  Then I let it dry overnight, and when I was ready to use them, I used my tweezers to carefully tease them off of the plastic.

I painted my thumb and pinky with OPI Haven’t The Foggiest, a beautiful shiny greyish silver. I painted my pointer nail with Nicole by OPI Totally In The Dark and topped it with Revlon Sparkle Aplenty, one of my favorite combinations.  And I painted my accent nails with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.  When it was almost dry, but still slightly tacky, I carefully placed the flower decals on, making sure that they were the correct side up, and gently made sure that they were completely flat and securely attached to my nails.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
