Floral french manicure


Hello everyone! :D
I am in the middle of baking process. I am making a cake for my boyfriend's birthday. :)
So while my cake in the oven I write this post. 


I made a french mani on two fingers and only on this two I added some pink glitters (but those were so tiny that probably you will not notice it the picture). The following step is matt top coat that is important for the next step when I will use water colors.



With the acrylic paint I made a one stroke flower, actually I wanted to make a 3 colors one stroke with pink, yellow and white. To make the things more complicated I also decided to make some shadows with water colors. So I used dark brown to draw the shadows behind the flower and onto the single petals. The result is not so bad, I think.... 
The last details I made were the dots and swirls.




Material used:

-  Essence studio nail anti-split nail seal
- Essence Bloom me up 04 chasing lacy
- Beauty UK matt top coat
- Essence better than gel nails Top coat
- Basic 241
- nail art brushes
- dotting tool
- acrylic paint
- water colors



What do you think? Have you ever used water colors for your nail designs?

  1. This is such a pretty and delicate manicure! I don't know how you do to paint with acrylics, for me it is so difficult, I guess it requires a lot of practice or a lot of talent! (or both!!)

    1. Well I use more often acrylic paint so it's not so difficult for me... I think that watercolors are more complicate to use. (or I just need more practice..)

  19. Nikad na bi pomislila da se mogu vodene boje upotrebiti za manikuru... brilijantno! I da pohvalim sav rad i vreme koje si potrošila na noktima- najpre sam mislila da su naljepkice, tako dobro je nacrtano :) xx Maja
