I was on Team Anne--same as last time--for this theme. Anne, our resident Canadian, gave us the assignment of manicures inspired by the dogwood tree, the national tree of British Columbia. It's a beautiful theme and I'm sure my fellow Team Anne Twinsies will do some gorgeous manicures inspired by it, but...well...
I started with a base of OPI Teenage Dream, one of my all-time favorite OPIs, which I then proceeded to deface with some truly awful nail art that I freehanded using a dotting tool. The branches were done with OPI Suzie Loves Cowboys, the petals are Illamasqua Scorch and the cyme (green part in the center of the flower) is OPI Did It On Em. I think the "flower" on my index finger more closely resembles a runny egg, but maybe that's just me.
So there you have it: My dogwood tree mani. I tried, y'all. :-/ I am sure my fellow Twinsies came up with some great manis for this week's theme though and I can't wait to see their (undoubtedly much better) efforts!
