30 Days of Colour: Water marble decals and free hand flowers "Daffodils"


Today is Indie/free hand day in 30 Days of Colour challenge and since most of my polish comes from indie brands anyway, I had to include some free hand drawing to make it interesting. My sister asked if I can make nails with Daffodils and this was a good opportunity to try it. Daffodils are not so easy to draw for someone with intermediate free hand skills,  so I cheated and painted them only on accent nail. For other nails I made water marble decals using on of my favorite indie brands Picture polish. This time I took pictures not only of dried marble, but also of decals which I cut from it (figure 6). As usually, I could not stop taking macro pictures of water marble, so below you will find way too many of them.
