Daffodil Nails

I did a back fill on my silver nails from a few weeks ago and decided it was time to add a bit of spring to their icy colour scheme.

I used STAEDTLER karat soft pastel chalks to colour my acrylic powders. Here's a tutorial on the process in case anyone missed it. 

There are so many colour choices using this chalk method for adding colours to my acrylics that all I can think about is making a full spring flower garden on my nails. I think I need longer nails so I can have more room to decorate.... or maybe I should be using this technique with the super softened STAEDTLER Fimo and create some jewelry pieces. Whatever I decide to do, I'd better hurry up and do it! The real flowers will be up and poking their heads through the soil before I know it.

Hope you can sense the spring where you are too.
My goodness it's been a long winter.
