I am a sucker for flower printed things - and I especially love Cath Kidston designs (who doesn't, anyway).
I've always wanted to try and do a nail design inspired by one of her designs, and today I finally did it on one of my lovely friends/client Gaby ^.^
I was so excited about doing the design that I though that I should do a nail tutorial and show my lovely readers how easy it is to do them.
This is how they turned out:
What you'll need:
- Baby blue nail polish
- Baby pink nail polish
- A slightly darker pink nail polish
- Dark green nail polish
- White nail polish
- Top coat
- A striper brush
- Dotting tool
Start by painting 2 coats of light blue polish on your little finger, middle finger and thumb.
Using a white striper polish or normal polish with a small brush, draw straight lines on your index fingers and white dots on the other pink nail (the fourth one) like so;
Using the same dark pink polish that you used to paint the index and fourth finger, draw 3 'circular' (or largish) messy dots on each light blue nail;
Then, using the lightest pink shade and a small brush, draw 2 tiny semicircular lines on the inside of each dark pattern that you've just created. This will serve as a highlight and will make the rose appear more lifelike and it will stand out more;
Use the dark green polish and a small brush to draw on tiny leaves on each rose;
Apply some clear top coat, and you're done!
