Alphabet Nail Art Challenge: F for Floral

**Purchased by Me**
Hey everybody! I can't believe it's going to be September already, 2013 flew by so quickly (well that's how I feel)! Anyways, here is my ongoing Alphabet Nail Art Challenge: F for Floral. To be honest, I actually did these few weeks ago. Right now my nails are naked and I'm giving them a little break. Poor nails does need some care time! However, here's some upbeat nail art for you.
I wanted to do something different when it came to florals. Lately, I've seen the typical colors done and I wanted to branch out a little bit. So I was combining colors together and realized the purple and orange really looked cute together. Don't you?!
 For the the base, I applied two coats of Bettina Nail Enamel Wild Orchid. Words can not explain how amazingly smooth is their formula is. I wished they stocked up here in the states. With one coat would work perfectly and I really love that. I then used a nail art brush to draw out the large florals.

I used Starfish and Sunrise, for the inner floral. These are super easy, just create little "c's" and use the other colors for dimension. Then use Green Apple and Resort Mojito for the leaves.
 For the rest of the florals, I pretty much used the same colors and swiped down Gold for more "shine".
 I then used Green Apple and Resort Mojito or the swirls. I combined both colors together to have a mixture of light and dark swirls. Using a nail art brush, I dotted Sunrise or the mini floral and added a small dot Starfish in the middle. Seal all the design with one coat Out the Door Top Coat.

What do guys think? What other crazy color combos you like too see next?
Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
