Daisy Nail Art

Hello again lovelies as I don't think I'll be posting tomorrow and the weekend as my fella is back from working away in London I thought I would treat you with two posts tonight, aren't you lucky hay haha. 

I have been loving doing DIY arty bits on my nails lately and have continuously forgot to take pictures to share with you on my blog so I thought I would start from now. 
Here's a simple pretty nail art for you all that looks lovely for the summer/spring or anytime really but more for the summer as the pretty flowers have sprung.


Sorry about the lighting, I did it in a loft conversion with the sun blaring as didn't want to intoxicate my son down stairs with the nail polish fumes. Its a stinky game.





To achieve this look you shall need the following tools...
Despite the base nail colour you can choose which ever you like


Step 1 - I am sorry I am very impatient and lazy and do not use a base coat so if you do you may want to do this first.

Step 2 - Apply the base colour you would like to set your pretty daisies on, I chose Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Pomegranate.

Step 3 - To make things easier I poured out the yellow polish from Miss Sporty on a flat surface so I had a blob of polish to work with and used my dotting tool to dab it in. You place your dotting tool in the yellow blob and dab it in places you would like it on your nail. I only fancied two on each nail so popped two dots vertically on my nails.

Step 4 - Using a nail art pen I picked up from Primark in white I placed little white dots around the yellow dot to make a daisy effect. 

Step 5 - I was feeling a little creative and popped white polka dots on my thumb nail and accent nail, you don't have to do this if you don't want to. Whatever you fancy :)

Step 6 - Then lastly apply a top coat I used Sally Hansen Insta Dry, Anti chip top coat. I have had these nails for a couple of days now and there still going strong with no chips at all and I'm constantly using my hands with a baby, puppy, cleaning, washing up etc so I would defiantly recommend this top coat!

I got my dotting tools from Ebay there about £3.00 for 6 what a bargain! Just type in nail dotting tools in your Ebay search.


Hope you liked my little nail art tutorial be sure to ask for more if you would like this more often. Is there any more nail art lovers out there?
