Dotted flower nail art

Wednesday, July 4, 2012

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday. Things have been busy in my neck of the woods because of wildfires. So after a hectic day at work dealing with that I needed to unwind. I like to do nail art to unwind. I like to lose myself in my polish and tools.

So what I have for you today is a dotted flower manicure.

I used Cult Nails Princess for the base. I love that color. It is a wonderful subdued shade of pale blue with lots of shimmer in it.

I used Zoya Rory for the pink in the flowers. Lots of shimmer to this polish and it is a gorgeous rose color. For the leaves I used Zoya Rory. It also has lots of shimmer and is a green. I wanted these flowers to be subtle.

China Glaze White on White makes up the white in the flowers.

These flowers are completed entirely with dotting tools. Large dots for the first petals and then decreasingly smaller dots on top. The leaves were also finished with a dotting tool. I just swiped the tool to make them oblong.

I actually kind of like how these came out. I was worried when I first finished because quite honestly - simple is often better. So I thought maybe I had taken it a little overboard. But I'm happy with it.
