Black and White Challenge: Day 6 Deco Daisy

Good Morning!

This is the sixth day in the black and white challenge. Again I can't believe what the sexy6 have been coming up with! Every night before we post I get all excited because I can't wait to see what they have come up with! I'm sure today's will be just as awesome! 

Today's challenge is a colour base with something white. I completely stumbled upon my inspiration for this mani by accident. I was browsing (creeping) through Facebook and saw some of my friends complaining that their moms had bought them Vera Bradley bags. I wasn't sure what these bags were all about so I Googled them. Now I don't know if I would ever use one myself, but the patterns are so cool for nail art! I picked the Deco Daisy design as my inspiration and went for it!

I started off with two coats of China Glaze's Make Some Noise from the Electropop Collection. This is more of a bright coral creme colour so then I added one coat of China Glaze's Vermillion which is the perfect red jelly creme. Then I added one coat of SV so that I could get to work on the nail art. Then I took a nail art brush and China Glaze White on White and started creating my flowers. Then I took my black Stripe Rite striper and added the black accents. Then I went back with WOW and filled in some more areas.

I like the final outcome here! It is close to the Vera Bradley pattern, but still my own.
