The Digit-al Dozen Presents - In My Garden; Day 2

Bee's Knees Lacquer Thorns and All & CJS On The Pond
The Digit-al Dozen day 2 is here and I'm back with another floral mani, because that's the main thing I think of when it comes to gardens!I promise some variety is coming though.
When I was swatching this beautiful green polish - Bee's Knees Lacquer Thorns and All (PR polish provided for review) - it was just begging for flowers.

I used layered stamping from plate Clear Jelly Stamper 36 /On The Pond. I used MdU Mexican Pink, Purple, and White - I mixed a drop of pink and white as well as purple and white to get lighter shades of the polishes for a bit more variety.

These flowers remind me of peonies - and again, the inspiration is my mom's garden! I remember when I was a little kid, I asked my mom one time when my friend's birthday was because I was too little to remember/know the calendar -she said it's when the peonies bloom. That stuck with me, but as I grew, I realized the flowers can be in bloom for a while and birthdays are just one day! It was in June..but since we moved to the States, the climate is so much milder and they're in bloom earlier now.
