Floral and Polka Dot Nails

Last week I decided to try out my new dotting tools. I looked to the internet for some inspiration and chose to try out floral and polka dot nails. Think Laura Ashley for inspiration on colour and style. I was pretty happy with the way they turned out, what do you think?

Floral and Polka Dot Nails

It was actually quite easy to do. The first step is to cover your nails in your chosen base coat. I went for a kind of duck egg blue colour. I think this colour works well with the floral pattern. I chose a cream colour for the polka dots, for something a little more subdued that would not detract too much attention away from the florals. I then just chose a couple of pinks, one lighter and one darker shade for the flowers. I did an initial blob of nail polish with the lighter colour, don’t worry too much about the way it looks as you will be painting over finer details. Once dry I just painted a few curved lines on top in the darker pink shade. I then added the leaves with a dark green polish. I was actually surprised with how many colours I already owned! I will try and upload additional pictures to show the process step by step for a proper tutorial!
