SPRINGTIME FLORAL NAILS…

I used four different polish colours, two nail brushes and a dotting tool to create this nail look.

After using my favourite Barry M base coat, I started with two layers of the Primark P.S. Love Beauty nail polish in this cute mint green. I picked up this polish because it was a complete bargain at £1 and because it was a colour I felt I needed to try first before committing to a more expensive version, and I have to say that for the price point I’m impressed. It took two coats to get a nice opaque finish (but that what I’d expect with a light coloured polish like this) it applied easily and dried quickly. It is probably chipping a little easier than some more expensive brands, but it’s done me well nevertheless. In honesty, this is not the kind of  colour I’d keep on my nails for more than a few days so I think buying a bargain version was a good option for me. I’m looking forward to trying out more of the P.S. Love Beauty range in the future.

Using my nail tools, which I picked up from Topshop; a dotting tool and seven brushes for £7, I got to work on the design. Taking my dotting too land my Barry M polish in NP119 Baby Pink  I created 3,4 or 5 baby pink dots on each nail, spreading them out so they didn’t look too uniform. When the dots had dried I took one of my brushes and my Christian Dior polish in 274 Simply Pink (which I’ve had for far too long and is definitely out of date but I love the colour, oops) and painted in swirling lines on and around the dots. I think the best method for doing this is making a little C over the dot and then adding a small line across the bottom. Hopefully you can see from the images above what I was going for here. I finished the design with another brush and my Zoya polish in Tangy, just delicately painting some little leaves for added effect. I’m not usually one for D.I.Y nails but I think these turned out nicely.

  3. Ok Anxiouslybold I have been searching the internet forever looking for the lone bottle of my all time favorite Dior polish ” Simply Pink”. So much so I still have a empty dried out bottle trying to match the exact color. So on my recent search I found you still have some. My question to you have you found another polish that come close??
