Taupe with bronze and gold was the theme for this skittlette; and, of course, flowers. The stamp is from my first MoYou plate and I chose the toughest, edgiest looking flower design of the bunch. Sunflowers stand rugged and tall, just like Zoe.
Because I couldn't decide, I flipped the order of the outer nail colors. On my left hand, I used Warrior Woman as the glitter topper on my pinky. On my right hand, I layered it on my thumb and index finger. I think I preferred the latter mostly because it gave me more of this complex polish.
Unfortunately, I couldn't quite capture the gold sparkle in Warrior Woman in these photos. I had layered it over the same taupe color that is under the gold stamped flowers. With a different shade of polish underneath it might have stood out better.
So, this was definitely not a typical flower design. Despite that, I think I somehow captured the essence of Serenity and her captain's loyal First Officer, Zoe. Although, if asked, I bet she would have said I should have at least one gun image on my nails. I could have also free-handed a black cord & knot which she wore around her neck in most scenes. There's always next time...
