Floral nails inspired by ChristabellNails

Hello All,

I did some free hand nail art this time - Floral mani. This mani is inspired by ChristabellNails Floral Sponge Watercolor Nails Tutorial - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAL2yWN-uZg. She does beautiful floral designs. Check out her channel.



I started with white polish as the base color and used three pink polishes - Wet n Wild Tickled pink, Wet n Wild Dreamy Poppy and Sally Hansen Dahlia. two greens - Sinful colors Mint Apple and Maybelline Color Show Fantasea green, sponge, paint brush and foil for this design.


                                       

Using sponge I dabbed light pink, dark pink and greens at random spots. Pinks would be the base for roses. Then on light pink spots I used paint brush dipped in acetone and dark pink polish to make roses. I repeated the same steps with light pink polish on the dark pink spots. Yes I have a broken thumb nail now :(


                                              

Here is the finished look. I am very happy with the result.
