Flower power nails and a great weekend

I was in the mood to try out a striking color combination and I can tell you that everybody noticed this manicure! 

I used the bold bright blue with a beautiful blue shimmer from Barry M. - Retro Blue. Application was smooth and I needed just one coat to achieve a fully opaque color. I combined it with the Nails Inc. Candy Orange polish, that is a bright orange with a slight milky hue. It is very pigmented and thick in texture and I needed just one coat to cover my nails perfectly, though with slight streaking marks. It goes on very glossy and dries pretty quickly.


For my accent nail I choose to create small flowers with the help of a dotting tool and added to the above mentioned combination a white polish. 






My next pictures does not go well with my flower power design, but I wanted to show you how I spent my weekend. We didn't traveled anywhere and decided instead to participate at the events organized in our city. We went to the Agraria (Agriculture) international exhibition where in addition to the latest tools and equipment there were exposed rare or unknown animal breeds. It was interesting to see sheep's, cows and horses, little different from the known breeds.






After that we went to a Dog Show where we saw a lot of cute champion dogs, but the most spectacular moment was presented from a well known dog trainer that won a talent show (Romanii au Talent) last year and his dogs. So, I let you with the photos. Enjoy!














How do you like my manicure? Do you usually use strong color combinations on your nails?

Thank you for stopping by!

    1. For the flowers I used a doting tool, but if you don't have one, you can use a pen or a hairpin too. It is very easy to make!
      Yorkies are cute but I prefer bigger dogs!

  18. Wow! Looks like you had an awesome weekend! Thanks for sharing! Though they were just a few images, but I feel like I could feel the excitement just from viewing them! :D Love the nail art too! And orange and blue is definitely a great combo. And yes, I love contrasting and bold colours. My skin is kind of tan, so bolder colours tend to look better on me than pale colours. Though for my manis, most of the time, it depends on the mood of the day :P Hahaha!!
