Dandelion nail art

First, I want to show you some swatches of one of my home made polishes. It's kind of a light peach color with a tiny bit of shimmer in it. The model in my pictures is my mom, I finally got to do her nails! She's a homemaker and spends a lot of time cleaning the house, so her fingers were in bad shape. She never files her nails, not after cutting them or even after they break. She told me she hates the feeling, but not the way I do it. She's such a sweetheart *love*

My mom doesn't like flashy nails. She wore one of my darker red polishes once for about three hours, then I had to take it off. She likes this shade, though, and I even got to do some nail art. My mom is a tiny woman, she's not very tall and not fat either. I wanted to make something to reflect this so I chose a dandelion with spores flying in the wind. She wouldn't sit still because she was chatting with me and playing a game on the iPad so it got kind of smudged :-p But still, I think it's a nice manicure for a honey like my mom.

By now, the polish has chipped and peeled and it looks awful :-p But it was great for a while and I like that I made my mom happy. I think I'm going to use her nails more often while mine get some rest. Whose nails do you like to do (except your own)?
