Since I also learned today that my current favorite polish, Julep's Helena, was voted their 2011 color of the year, I decided to get a head start on painting dandelions and used Helena as my star color.
After prepping my nails with Julep's Nail Therapy, I painted my nails with two coats of Helena. I then sponged on a fuzzy backdrop in Whirlwind White with a cosmetic sponge. Next I used Trina to draw in the lines of the dandelions. I outlined the centers of the dandelions in Whirlwind White and used a dotting tool in Whirlwind White to put random white dots throughout the lines. I then used the dotting tool and placed larger dots of Skull & Glossbones and Let's Talk around each set of lines. Last, I made a circular pattern throughout the dots with iridescent glitter.
Ok, so I have a problem. Hi, this is Nails, Actually and I'm addicted to glitter. *sigh*
Even so these nails turned out cute enough for me:) On to the Sipping N Painting!
UPDATE: Megan and I had a blast painting our dandelions!
