Pretty in Peach

Pretty in PeachI tried a thing.

It didn’t work.

Because I had such a resounding response to the flowers-on-a-pond jelly sandwich, I really wanted to explore with layering designs. My idea was to do different flower petals on different layers of polish to give the design some depth. I actually just did layers of Seche Vite for this. The end result was something that started peeling the very next day, and didn’t offer the depth for which I was striving.

However! I do plan on recreating this soon and learning from my mistakes. For instance, I will start with a base color first, then use different shades on the individual petals. I also plan on using something other than Seche Vite as the clear layer between the colors. Gelous? Sally’s Super Shine? More experimentation will be necessary.

The base color is Essie’s A Crewed Interest, which is my personal perfect shade of peach.
