It's been pretty wintery and cold recently and I thought to cheer myself up that I would take some of my new colours that I got for Christmas for a spin and create a design inspired by spring.
I couldn't decide which of my pastel shades I wanted to try first, so in the end I used all three! I painted three nails on each hand in Jade Stone and two in Fuzzy Peach. The centres of my daisy like flowers are done using Lemon Meringue. These three are all Models Own colours. For the white of my flowers I used Sally Hansen White Out.
These are very simple flowers, more simple than they look. After applying two coats of my base colours, which are gorgeous candy-like pastel shades, I used a small brush dipped in the white polish and just pushed the bristles away from the nail edge towards the centre of my nail. I did this a few times to create my basic flower shape. I didn't want a full flower of each nail as I think this could be too much. I placed my flower a different points on each nail to mix up the design. When my petals were dry I added a large yellow dot in the centre using a dotting tool.
I really like the outcome of this design and I hope you do too. Let me know if you have a go at a bright and colourful nail design to brighten your winter days.
