Guest Post: Flower Power Nail Art Tutorial

Hello lovely Lauren Loves Blog readers! I'm Vicky and I blog over at Lady Bug Says and today I'm doing a guest post to fill in for Lauren whilst she is away on her holidays :)


I thought I would show you all a simple summery nail art tutorial.

Firstly you will need 4 nail polishes, a neutral and 3 complimenting colours, a nail file, 2 cocktail sticks and a scrap of paper.


I have used All About Face(available in Tesco) in 'Fudge', Barry M in 'Mint Green', Models Own in 'Baby Blues' & Elf in 'Mango Madness'.

Then you need to file down the ends on your cocktail sticks to flatten them off.



You now need to give your nails 2 coats of your neutral colour.

Then you need to put a few large drops of your remaining 3 polishes onto a scrap of paper.



Dip the end of the cocktail stick in your first colour and make 5 dots on your nail in a circular shape, this makes your flower petals. Repeat 2 or 3 times randomly on your nail



Repeat the above step with your second colour.



Finally using your third colour dot in the centre of the petals to make the flower centre.

You can finish it all off with a topcoat of your choice

So there you are! Simple flowery nails :)
