cath kidston nail art tutorial

wowza it's been a while since I first painted this nail art... an oldie but a goodie!

I figured that some of you wouldn't have seen these (I first painted them just over a year ago here) I never posted a full tutorial and I wanted to show you how I did them!

I've used one of my all time favourite colours models own beth's blue as the base. the formula of this colour is crazy good- I'm wearing just one coat in the photos below.
so here's the steps I've used! first start off with the base colour and leave to dry
next use a white nail art pen to draw a white circle, dab small dots around the edges to create these 'cloud' shapes above.
next use a dotting tool to add a small dot of a light and dark pink to suggest flowers, then dot on greens to suggest leaves.
finish off the design by adding tiny white dots in a circle shape around each flower centerpiece (it's important to space out your design so you have enough room to do this!)

seal with topcoat and enjoy.... 

I hope you like them! back soon!
