The Digit-al Dozen Does Nature--Floral

Hi Everyone!  Hope everyone is doing well.  I'm on day 5 of this cold and it is kicking my rumpass!  The barking seal cough is starting to grate on my nerves.  Hopefully I'm on the downward spiral because I am so over this shizz!

Today it's going to hit 50 here!  50 degrees--above celsius!  The sun is not expected to shine but that's okay we will take this warmer weather.  You can actually look outside and snow grass now!  Glorious green--okay it's sort of  brownish--but it's still grass!

To celebrate the sign of the times that Spring is just around the corner I did a floral mani.  It's hard to do a floral mani in this group.  There is a TON of super duper stiff competition.  It's hard to worry about being compared to Will Paint Nails For Food, Set In Lacquer and Pointless Cafe.  But that's the beauty of the group!  We all do things differently.  We all bring something a little different to the table and that's what makes being a part of this group so much dang fan!

This took a long time to do.  I had to stamp each flower one at a time and of course I used a MoYou Tropical plate so I had to try to alienate the flower on the stamper or I had to remove excess flowers touching it.  I pretty much was glad it was done once it was because what the french was I thinking doing something that was so dang time consuming?
I got to use a lot of Mundo de Unas stamping polishes for this baby though and that made me VERY happy
There just isn't anything like Mundo.  I  just love them.

Funny story about this mani--I'm really not a tropical type person at all.  I'm a woodsy gal and would prefer to see Alaska long before a trip some place tropical like Hawaii.  But I love how tropical flowers look on my nails!

I'm heading over to check out what everyone else did today.  I wonder if anyone did floral?????
