Bright and Cheerful Flowers with Gelaze

Hello Loves!  I was in the mood for something bright and cheerful today, so I decided to revisit my current photography nemesis - Gelaze Flip Flop Fantasy.  I'm still not happy with the color accuracy on this one, but it is quite close and the final mani makes me smile!

I started with a base of Gelaze Flip Flop Fantasy.  This is a very bright, almost neon peachy-pink cream.  As noted above, this photo is not 100% color accurate, but it is as close as I can get in a light box.  It is much brighter in person.

I then sponged Gelaze Pool Party on the tips and topped the entire nail with a very thin coat of Gelaze Fairy Dust.  Sadly, the Fairy Dust blended the two colors even more and the gradient became super subtle.  I still like how it turned out, though.  I swatched Fairy Dust previously here.

Here's a swatch of Gelaze Pool Party.  Pool Party is a bright Pinkish Coral.  Sadly, this photo isn't 100% color accurate either.  These brights are nearly impossible to capture in my current setup.  This is as close as I could get it, but it is a bit more pink and much brighter in person.

I then broke out my acrylic paints again for the flowers.  I'm having a blast playing with acrylic paints and one stroke techniques.  While I still haven't mastered it, I'm tickled pink with the way these turned out.

If you have these two Gelaze colors, do these swatch photos look close to you?  I've swatched them at least a dozen times and just can't seem to get them right!
