IMG_20180129_141752316_kindlephoto-198179795These flowers all arise from a sample of handsewn ribbon from the mid to late Eighteenth century.  Colors have faded and bled adding  patina to this glorious stuff.

These nails like all my other designs are built on an blank acrylic nail. Coated with 2 layer of gel after the gel comes the fun I get my box of acrylic paints out and play.  When playtime does end the nails are covered again with gel and hardened to completion.
