Nail polish much?

Last night I was browsing online and one blog leaded me to another and I ended up here: Konad Addict
I like to take good care of my nails, so I have the habit of having weekly mani and pedicure. It's not super expensive here in Brazil (when I got to know how much an average American girl pays just to have her nails done, my heart missed a beat!) Recently this nails polishes and nail arts blogs kinda boomed here in my country (or it was just me who eventually found them, lol) and I got curious. I bought a small kit and started doing my nails. 
I thought I'd have some serious problems because of my lack of coordenation, specially when trying to work with my left hand, since I'm right handed, but for my own surprise I not only got better and better, I now really enjoy doing it myself. 
If you are an enthusiast just like I am, and want to take the chance to win three lovely colors (your choice!!!) of this Aussie brand nail polish, run! Good luck for you and me!

Playing with colors

Hi, ppl... 
After around 8 years with no finishing for myself ( family and friends always come first...Lol), I finally made something for myself. Yaaay! However, it's not quite finished yet...
This is Tralala Poupées Russes. I completely perverted the color chart and made mine on shades of purple. Tho purple is not my top top top fave color, I think it turned out quite nice. In fact I'm becoming very fond of the color, after this work. 
My question for you, guys is: should I add yellow right in the middle of the flowers? Should I fill the polka dots at the bottom of the matrioshka? I like he assisi effect, but at the same time something seems to be missing and the work looks incomplete... what do you think? What would you do?
Oh! And to all of you, a very Happy Valentine's Day!
