Nail Art Wednesday

If you follow Kat on Instagram, you would have been delighted by her wonderful photos of various flowers. It was viewing these photos that inspired this nail look.



Models Inc "Diamond Shine", Australis "#bethatgirl", Ulta3 "Honolulu and Australis "Glitter Strikes Back"

I began with a champagne base colour. On the fingers that I wanted to replicate a flower design, I applied another coat of the base polish. While still wet, I dotted on the purple polish, then yellow in the centre. Using a toothpick, I dragged the yellow polish out from the middle, in the hope of creating a design reminiscent of a pansy. On the remaining nails I applied the glitter topper, "Empire Strikes Back".



I hope I did justice to these beautiful flowers :)




I just linked this post to Monday Makeup Madness over at Fabulous and Fun Life

    1. Thanks Beth. I find yellow is useful for a lot of nail art ideas. Not a fan of the colour on its own on my nails, tho, lol

  5. Those pansies look great Indie! Love the champagne colour on the other nails too and I'm another one who can't wear yellow on its own, it just doesn't suit me.
