Summer Throwback


Before I start with my post, I would like to point out to all of my lovely followers and visitors that I now have a bloglovin' button, and it'd be wonderful if you could follow me there as well as on GFC! Thank you all- and now, back to the topic! :)




I've seen thousands of different types of nail art, and I'm a really big fan of it myself. This week I decided to try a design that I've seen all over Instagram, but didn't look too challenging to replicate on both hands. I did these flowers by layering blobs of nail polish with a toothpick, and it's as easy as it sounds! I know that the design is quite summery, but it's my way of channeling its' spirit into the fall, and somewhat continuing the floral trend that was so big during the s/s!




For my background I used Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle Nail Color, the base of my flowers was OPI Nail Laquer 'Do You Lilac It?' and on top of that I had OPI Nail Laquer 'Lincoln Park At Midnight'



The finished effect! Naturally they aren't perfect, but it was my first time doing this design, and practice will make perfect! Hope you guys enjoyed this!
