Summer Challenge Day 17 - Hippie/Retro/Summer of Love

Hi there!

The first thing I thought of for this challenge was tie dye, of course. But my 4yo son has been watching Cars 2 non-stop lately which made me think of the hippie VW bus Fillmore from the movie. I had a whole theme planned but Fillmore took me over two hours to paint, so I just finished the rest of the nails with some hippie flowers. I haven't really painted much since college, so maybe the more I practice, the better it will get.

Fillmore and the flowers were made with acrylic paint.

 Unfortunately my middle finger smeared. I applied my Seche Vite top coat before the acrylic paint dried.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
