The Digit-al Dozen Redoes Art - Water Lilies

Hello lovelies!

Pffff I made it, the last installment of this month's Digit-al Dozen week! It was such an incredibly fun theme this month, but I struggled to get everything done. But I made it and am only two days late ;)

I'm finishing off this week with water lilies and I think you all know whom I was inspired by.

Monet "Water lilies", 1916 source
Alright, so my rendition came out even 'happier' than Monet's, but still! This was fun. I used a whole bunch of nail polishes for this look, starting with a base of Lucky 13 Lacquer "Mist and Shadow":

Then I used my detail brush and this list of polishes to paint everything on:
  • Aliquid Lacquer "Yooper"
  • LynBDesigns "Granger"
  • HEMA blue
  • China Glaze "Boho Blues",
  • Sinful Colors "Snow me White", "Black on Black"
  • Essence "Little Miss Sunrise", "I love Bad Boys"
  • W7 "Spearmint", "Pillar Box Red"
  • Catrice "PuREDified Simplicity"

I sealed it in with two coats of Seche Vite.

I'd love to know what you think! I'm still not sure whether it's a fail or not, it just doesn't look like the original as much as I would've liked it to.

Be sure to look at all the other ladies' beautiful manicures below!
