These past couple of weeks have been crazy busy, so I haven’t had much time for blogging, and I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to participate in this round of The Beauty Buffs. But inspiration struck me and I found the time to join in and blog about this weeks theme: Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid.

I put together a collage of my look and what inspired it, and I think I might need to do more of these, because this was fun!

My orchid bloomed just last week so this was perfect timing! I almost killed it trying to get a good shot, but luckily it survived 🙂 I made a gigantic mess creating this mani, but I used a combination of splatter and my very own “Woops, I made a mess technique”, and it came out ok. On it’s own the mani doesn’t have a wow factor, but it really compliments the orchid and pictured together I love the subtle-ness of the mani.
