Day 14 of 31 Day Challenge, today is Flower mani ;)

Again, today’s mani is something I wanted to do since I’ve seen on Japanese nail blogs (here and here). Unikko (Marimekko) inspired mani. I’m big fan of Scandinavian design, and of course Marimekko is not an exception. Also Unikko = poppy flower itself is very important, it’s most closest flower for me…no, for my family (at least my dad and me), so there’s no reason not to go for it!

All I needed for this mani was a dotting tool. Big flowers on the tip was painted directly with polish brush, and small details are all done by dotting tool. It wasn’t as difficult as I’ve expected, and I really love the finish! I’m willing to do same design with different color…perhaps blue? Or even yellow/orange? ;)

14日目はフラワーモチーフということで迷うこと無くマリメッコ一択でした!ちびぷにさんまきーーこさんがやってらしたのを見て以来やってみたかったのマリメッコネイル!正確にはウニッコネイルですね。ウニッコ=ケシの花は個人的にとても大切な花の1つでもあるので是非やりたかったのです。今回やっと出来たのでわたくし非常に満足です。大きいウニッコも小さいウニッコもどっちもかわいいよ!<自画自賛

惜しむらくは茎を描く方向をちょっと間違えたことかなー。あともう少し「らしい」形にできないと駄目ですね。まだもどきの域を出られてない。とはいえポリッシュ筆一気描き+ドット棒ぽちぽちで比較的さっくり描けてしまったのが吃驚です。楽しかったのでまたやりたいな!今度は青色ですかねえ、やっぱり(`・ω・´)

  2. Haha, I love how the polishes look everything but pink like the names suggest. :D I love essence names. When I saw this design, it immediately reminded me of a design I saw on a Japanese blog and I guess I was right. Yours definitely has the same feel to it. I can't wait for the actual poppy flowers to start blooming :)

    2. Hihihi you're right Kayono, actually there was a small movement in Japan for Marimekko mani a bit before...and I wanted to do it since then!
      Also I love the essence & Catrice's naming of polishes, it sometimes make me laugh though :P
