Windswept flowers

Hello ladies,

On such a warm and still day, I wanted to inspire Nature to stir the air. I decided to create the look of windswept flowers. These were a nice accompaniment as I strolled through the paths in Rancocas Woods with my friend Sarada.

From fauxnad image plate, I stamped the tumbling flowers in Konad white special polish. I accented the design with tri-color metallic gems from Art Club. I alternated gold and silver petals across my nails.



These mushrooms were so delicate and tiny. Many were smaller than thimbles.

I painted three coats of Tequila Sunrise for perfect opacity. I imagine this shade would flatter most skin tones. This base color reminds me of persimmons. There is a tint of pink beneath the orange. Gold shimmer adds a gentle radiance.

I love how Tequila Sunrise is a bridge of color from summer into fall. It makes me think of sun-warmed fruit and flowers.

Image plate H34 was sent to me for consideration. To view the entire line of stamping nail art plates, please visit

The metallic gems are from the Art Club Pretty Shiny Things Kit. These were provided for my consideration and can be purchased from

  1. Girl you come up with some of the simpilest but fabest nail art. I love it. Everytime I see you have a new post I jump on it quick and get all warm and fuzzy. This here entombes the transition from summer to fall perfectly. I heart it soo!

  2. Gorgeous pics as always. Pretty mani too

  3. I almost wore this polish last week. Think I have to dig it out again. It is gorgeous on you. The stamp is so delicate and pretty. How do you know all of those names for the flowers or are they wildflowers? They are lovely. I can imagine a huge field of wheat with those flowers growing wild throughout.

  4. This reminds me of the Perfume: Story of a Murderer film adaptation where he goes to Grass - so beautiful there.

  5. Very pretty! Love the flora shots as well. Thank you so much for sharing.
