Winter Florals

Firstly, I must apologise for the state of my nails, they just keep breaking at the moment. Despite my stubby nails I wanted to create a fun design to wear to work last Friday. I never get the chance to actually show off my designs in real life anymore!

I haven't done florals for ages, but they're a bit summery, so I decided to add a winter twist to them this time. By using a black base and dusty colours for the flowers you can make a floral design work perfectly for Autumn/Winter. The only problem with this design is it takes forever!

I started with two coats of Barry M - Espresso. Once this was dry I drew on the flowers and leaves in white using a nail art pen. Onto the white template I added the colours, Barry M - Ballerina* for the flowers and Rimmel - Round and Round the Garden for the leaves. I added highlights with Barry M - Vintage Violet* and the white nail art pen again. I mostly used a small brush for this design. 

It was my first time using a black base for florals and I'm so pleased with how they turned out. Super cute and perfect for this weather. I wore these nails to add a girly touch to a monochrome oufit of skinny jeans, leather boots and plain white tee.
