Triplets: Flowers and Chevrons

So Cynthia, Voni, and I got a wild idea to collaborate on a post. We decided to recreate this particular print from Society 6. Part of the fun of doing something like this is to see how we all interpret it differently. I went for a fairly spot of version, except my flowers are a bit abstract vs. literal. 

My base is OPI You're So Vain-illa. I then added chevrons using mini chevron nail vinyls and OPI 4 in the Morning. I did the flowers with Sally Hansen's I <3 Nail Art pens in Orange #330, Yellow #320, Magenta #390, and Turquoise #450. I then topped everything off with Revlon's Matte top coat. 




The nail art pens are amazingly easy to work with and they have a fine tip that allows you to get great fine detail when using them. I can totally see myself using them in the future. What do you think of my version? Check out Cynthia and Voni's versions below!

    1. Thanks! I wish they were a little more realistic but flowers are my downfall. I just can't pull them off.

  3. This is so fun, and it's matte, which I love! I think nail art pens would be a safe start for me to venture into something simple and subtle :) You'll have to do this again in the Spring, or a variation of it.

    1. The nail art pens from Sally Hansen are the best ones I've tried. They are super simple and make stuff like this super easy.
