Daisy Nails with Elf’s Mint Cream

27 May

Image

To go VERY pastel I decided to combine my most loved spring colour; the mint green with my yellow and white in one nail art design to create FLORAL NAILS! The floral trend doesn’t have to stop at your dresses or shorts, you can dress up your nails too!

Elf’s Mint Cream provides the perfect background and base for this flower design, it does all the work with an all over pastel finish. I’m loving my daisies, so I can’t stop doing daisy nails all the time!

To achieve these nails, you will need:

Image

I used: Barry M 3 in 1 Clear, Elf Mint Cream, Collection 2000 Lemon Soda, Barry M Matt White

and

Image

…a hair grip pulled apart which I used to create the petal dots.

Step 1: Apply base coat

Image

Step 2: After base coat has dried, apply Elf’s Mint Cream

Image

Step 3: After the mint green is dry, dab your hair grip end into you yellow nail polish (Collection 2000 Lemon Soda)

Image

Instead of directly putting the hair grip into the bottle I took a bit from the brush, that way I can see and control how much I take, you only need a little.

Step 4: Carefully dab small dots (I would recommend three spaced out yellow dots to make room for the white petals, it all depends on the size of your nails too)

Image

Step 5: Time for the almost-finished-and-I’m-so-excited part.

Do the same with the white petals but I would suggest first letting the yellow to dry otherwise they can run into each other. Do 5 – 6 dots. I stuck with 5, and maybe just 2 on your little finger.

And the end result!
