This is the pattern on my dress.
So, what's a nail junkie to do? Go to PINTEREST!!! I found THIS and THIS & decided to attempt both in one mani. I also had the bright idea to do this at 2am while watching episodes of Honey Boo Boo. I'll just say that show is horrible & that is NOT how all people in the south act.
I'll stop blabbering & show y'all pics. I'll tell you what I did after.

I forgot to write this all down, so hopefully I can remember everything. I used OPI Nail Envy as my base coat & 2 coats of Rimmel Midnight Blue which is an almost black shimmery blue.
Thumb, index, & pinky: I brushed a thin layer of China Glaze Atlantis on 2/3 of the nail then 2 thin coats of Barry M Aqua Glitter(which I recently got from a giveaway on Glowstars.net)
Middle & ring: I dabbed a bit of Barry M Aqua Glitter on bottom corners of my nail. Then I took a short nail art brush and used a white Art Deco polish to freehand some flower petals(I know they're 2 diff shapes, that's what happens at 3am). I took a small bit of OPI Fly and brushed over the white just a little for some multi-colored petals. I grabbed a dotting tool that had just a point at one end and grabbed the large hex pieces of glitter out of OPI Servin' Up Sparkle & randomly placed them above the flowers.
I finished with a coat of Gelous & Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat.
What do y'all think? I'm tempted to remove the flowers & stuff and just do a glitter gradient.
