Pretty Perennials

Hello! It's the last day of November, can you believe it? I went out the door in flats today before I realized that it's basically winter. Two hours later I came home with numb toes and banished the flats to the closet for the rest of the season :P The upside to the beginning of December is that Movember is finally over. I'm all for the cause but I've seen way too many unruly, scraggly beards this month :P

This manicure is one that I'm particularly fond of. I wanted to try out one of my recent purchases, American Apparel Imperial Purple. It's a beautiful deep, purple-blue shade that was opaque in an easy two coats. On top of that I did some bright ditsy floral accent nails. 


I painted American Apparel Imperial Purple on all of my nails. I used dotting tools in various sizes to make the flowers and polka dots with American Apparel Poppy, American Apparel The Valley, American Apparel Manila and American Apparel T-Shirt. I used a striping brush to draw on the leaves and the white parts of the petals.

So now that December's here I think it's time to start doing some holiday nail art. Stay tuned!
