Nail Art: Pink Lilac with Flower

Today, I had Caronia Pink Lilac on my nails. Actually, I really do not know how to describe this color.

I searched the internet and found the hex color code for this one instead, the 5D4157. Sorry for the pictures, I couldn't get the exact color. The swatch below is the actual color on my nails.



Accordingly, 5D4157 has a color combination of 37.96% red, 26.53% green and 35.51% blue.



I had difficulty in applying this nail polish on my nails because the consistency is quite thick. Overall the color is good but it does not compliment my skin complexion, it made my hands look so dark. I think this will work with the mestizas. :)



Anyway, since I have tried it already might as well draw something on it. And I chose flowers again but this time the flowers' petals have two colors.


The base petals are combination of red, white and yellow acrylic paints with an outcome color nearest to chestnut rose. Then, partially overlayed it with white paint just to stand it out. 








But still, I'm not that satisfied with the result.

What do you think? 

Quite dull for me. Maybe next time I'll redo this and chose a more striking color combination. :)

Watch out for it... See you next time...

  1. the color of the swatch doesn't really look like the ones on your nails. i guess it's the flash? i like the deepness of the color. maybe yellow flowers would be a nice contrast :D

  9. It's like mauve in the pictures! I agree that yellow would stand out perfectly against the purple.

  12. Maybe this doesn't work for me because the color looks old? XD

    have you tried doing an ombre type of nail art? Like the orange ones Etude used to sell?

  17. i like the flowers but i guess the background color of the nails does not compliment on the color of the flowers.. pastel colors i think will be the perfect match.. :)
