vintage flower nail art:

I've painted so many halloween nails lately I decided it was high time to go back to something a little less spooky! I came up with this vintage flower nail art yesterday and thought I'd share it with you guys.

I didn't use any nail art pens just the nail polish brush themselves; it's quite an abstract flower so perfectionists look away now! (..hurrah shaky hand sufferers)

 here's a quick guideline; I'm sorry there isn't step by step pictures this week I didn't have my camera (tut tut naughty blogger)

so first I painted a peach base colour (barry m peach melba) 
take a few blue polishes and several pinks from your polish collections (I know you're all as bad as me for buying nail varnish!)
draw a couple of blue and pink circles on each nail (use your darkest colours first!) 
take a lighter shade of blue and pink and swirl a dash of each over the top to create a petal effect.
continue adding little petal dashes until you are happy with the effect.
add a small white dot in the centre of each flower and a few scattered green dots for leaves.
seal with a good lick of topcoat..

I hope you like them! I'm currently waiting for the weather to improve so I can take some outfit photos! how does anyone get them done in the winter? dark evenings, gale force makeovers and a mouth-full of hair every time I venture out of the front door! 

(apologies if I resemble cousin it in the next what I wore today post)

back soon kittens!
