Bright Floral Nails

Hello everyone. How are we all? I am having a nice lazy day off today since I am working the weekend.

Today I have a manicure to show you that @hannvjk did on instagram. I believe the design was initially by @mrcandiipants but I loved the colour scheme that hannvjk used. Here is a link to the actual post. Isn't it soo pretty?! I just had to recreate it.

I must admit I wasn't very pleased with how these came out, I think my lines were kind of messy. But I thought I would share my attempt anyway, even if they were a big fat fail haha!

I started with a base of Models Own - Pink Sorbet on all my nails except my ring finger which is Barry M - Key Lime.

I then freehanded the shapes with a white creme and a nail art brush.

I added the colours to the middle of the flowers, using the opposite colour that I had for the base colour. Once this was dry I added the white dots on top.

Finally I freehanded the black details, added a topcoat and I was done.

Like I said before, I wasn't very pleased with these. I was trying out a new brush for this, but I think I will stick to my old one, it is much easier to work with. But it is all good practice I guess!

Have you had any nail fails lately?

Thanks for looking!
