All will become clear in a few day’s time when I’ve completed the entire post, but these pretty floral nails featuring the delicate white blossoms of a night blooming jasmine were inspired by this bottle of jasmine-scented cologne I was sent from Demeter to tinker around with and report back on. Tinker and report, I shall, but for now I just wanted to create some simple nail art showcasing these pretty little night owl flowers.
As a related aside, did you know that jasmine is a relative of nightshade? It’s a whole plant family with dark reputations! Kind of like the Malfoys and some of the female members of the Black family from Harry Potter if they photosynthesized.

Heh! Jasmine sounds so nice (makes me think of flying carpets and I never even saw that movie). And usually night shade is preceded by “deadly”. Lol
I like the whole mani but really love the night sky effect, very cool!
Thank you! Every time I need a night sky, I bust out this polish I have from CND (the Vinylux line) called Dazzling Dance. It’s responsible for those realistic-looking glitter stars.
Haha, love the HP perspective on jasmine 😛
These are the prettiest! So good.
Love jasmine anything btw. Drinking a cuppa at the moment actually.
Thanks very much! Can’t stand the stuff myself – not really a floral scent kind of person – but tea makes just about anything better, so I’ll work with you on this! 🙂
Sigh worthy! So very pretty. Jasmine is quite the flower! Very hardy plant too. Have a lovely week Sandra! 🙂
Thanks! I actually am not that fond of jasmine as a scent, but it’s such a pretty flower. Flower? Or is it a bush? A flowering bush? Oh goodness, I’m quite confused now. 😉
It is a plant that is that and more! Bush, vine, etc…very interesting indeed. I like the smell of jasmine, but in the real plant and not the fake scented perfumes. Be well Sandra! 🙂
Oh, the real plants or flowers or what have you are ALWAYS so much better than the perfume versions. Real roses? The best smell on earth. Like candy! But I can’t stand rose scents – so bizarre. Happy weekend to you, friend!
