China Glaze Kalahari Kiss Blossom Nail Art

Hello again!

I was up early this morning, so had time to do some nail art.  This is one I've seen quite a bit round the net, although not for a while, so I can't really give credit for it to anyone, although I'm pretty sure Indigo Nova has a YouTube tutorial for it (I think she has a new name now though).

It actually wasn't what I intended to do when I painted my nails initially, it just kind of happened, but it wasn't a bad thing because I'm really pleased with how they turned out:

Here's what I did - NOT a tutorial:

1) Painted my nails with Kalahari Kiss
2) Used a green striping polish to make random branches - this was very easy to do
3) Used a dotting tool and Barry M Peach Melba to dot the flowers on, easy but time consuming
4) Used the smaller end of the dotting tool and Rimmel Coraliscious for the flower centres
5) Waited 5 mins, then top coat of Seche Vite

All done!

I took alot of pictures of this, but will only subject you to one more, speaking of which, I joined Instagram, went out on a walk today and took some great pics, so will see if I can add them, I don't know yet if there are picture size rules or whatever, but will suss it out!  Heres the other pic:

I think I'm going to risk it and wear it for work tomorrow, I might get away with it because it's quite light coloured, only one way to find out!

Until next time.....

    1. I know right? Shake my head at us! Mind you, it's the only time theres peace and quiet to get on with blogging! x x x

  4. Oooh, I love this, so pretty! I tried to do a blossomy nail art before but yours is way nicer (Hope it's okay I'm sharing, it'd probably take a while to find as it's an old post )but I did it all freehand, though I have ordered some stripping tape. This is so feminine, don't see why you couldn't get away with it at work. It's not too bold or in your face, it's spot on

    Lizzums xx

    1. Thankyou! Actually as it turns out, I don't think anyone noticed haha! Yours look great too, a very different bolder look than mine x x x
