Pinterest: succeed or fail. Nail polish flowers.
So I've been watching this pin. It looks so simple and the finished product is amazingly adorable. I wanted to try because how cute would it be as a photo-prop head piece on a baby girl!?
So it looks simple enough and I used some scrap wire I had left over because I didn't want to waste money if it didn't work. I had my doubts, I felt like the nail polish wouldn't cover the whole petal and I'd be left with painted wire skeletons of flowers.
Was I ever wrong!
It's as simple as it shows, make your flower.
My wire is a tad thicker than what I wanted to use so when I go to make the head piece I'll go with a thinner wire.
Pick your polish and paint each petal, the first swipe didn't work on 2 petals but the second it went right on. No problem!
Then I thought, there's no way the polish won't be extremely fragile....but guess what!? When it dried it's much tougher than I had expected!
I will shape my flowers better for the head piece. I thought I took a picture of the polish brand, if it matters, it's Sally Hensen.
