Studded Spring Floral - Nail Art

If you follow me on Instagram then you may have already seen todays nails.
The sun had put me a in a Spring mood but I wasn't ready to stop playing with the Nail Studs so I decided to try a studded floral design.

I used two coats of Barry M Matt White as a base then used some paper hole reinforcer stickers to mark off the half moons on my pinky and index fingers and used Barry M Black with a fine nail art brush to freehand the stripes. On my thumb, middle and ring fingers I used Barry M Baby Pink and Lemon Ice Cream with a nail art brush to randomly add some petal shapes and Barry M Black again for the 'stalks'. I then gave all five nails a coat of China Glaze No Chip Top Coat and applied the studs whilst that was still wet. When that had dried I finished with another layer of top coat.

I loved these, I liked the mix of delicate pink and yellow floral with bold stripes and studs, I thought they worked nicely together. I think it will looks equally as good using some brighter colours for the flowers, maybe red and fuchsia.

Let me know what you think!

  2. Holy Cow, I cannot adequately express how freaking in love with this mani I am!! The stripes and studs and squishy flowers all come together to give it a very Parisian/vintage burlesque (ok, a rather innocent burlesque!) feel. LOVE!!

  3. Wow this is so beautiful!! great use of studs x
