Nail art post!

I did this design a few weeks ago, about two. It really wasnt that hard, I thought it was going to be a nightmare! I saw this picture on Lauren Conrad and really liked it!

I didn't get it as detailed as I would have liked though! I used the beautiful minty green color from Dolly wink that I posted about a few blogs back, and used various pinks. If you want to know I will update with them!

There's that elusive thumb again;)
 I loved how this came out, it took about 25 mins. I know it sounds like a lot, but I really thought it was going to be a lot more. I recommend a dotting tool and even a toothpick. You will be surprised how much detail you can do with a simple toothpick!
I think to go from spring/summer to winter/fall, you can do a burgundy/dark red background and make gold and white flowers. Or even a black background and then make gray/white flowers.

  3. This looks great! Awesome color combinations!

    Recently I've been using more toothpicks in my nail designs. I was also surprised how much I could do with it.
