Happy Mother's Day with flowers

Today is Mother's Day and's always a busy day.
With my mother, my hubby's mother and being a mother myself it is not really the most relaxed day.
However I've been spoiled a lot :D
There were drawings, poems, chocolate, kisses, a DIY necklace and of course my UV and nail drying lamp!!
I recently had a surprise Mother's Day give away on Facebook for my Dutch followers.
I asked them to share a picture of something their mother loves.
Among the shares was a picture of scarves/mini shawls which the mother was obsessed about.
This is what I came up with:
I bought a nice Summer scarf and made a matching nail art bracelet.
Now, for my own mother...
She loves flowers and actually is my biggest fan.
From day 1 she's been sharing all my pictures on her personal Facebook page and loves when I do her nails.
Nail art is temporary and I decided that she should have something more lasting as well.
I've made a nail art locket which can be worn on both sides.
Front side are flowers.
Back side is purple holographic with the text: Mom. I love you!
And I actually found some time to do my own nails as well :D
I've started with a white base: Only You White French
Then I took a detail brush (0000) and black acrylic paint to make the flowers.
I've done the coloring with the same brush and the fabulous OPI Sheer Tints.
And decided to finish the design with a matte topcoat: China Glaze Matte Magic.
To all mothers and mothers in heart:
Have a fabulous, amazing Mother's Day!
