floral outlines

instead of the basic flower print i decided to do more of an avant guard floral print. this was perfect for a wedding that i attended to this week.

essie sugardaddy
essie play date
black striper pen
essie school of hardrocks
gold glitter striper pen

step 1: paint three to four coats of essie sugar daddy. this color is very sheer and needs more than the normal application.

step 2: after the base is completely dry, using essie play date, paint three to five (depending on the size of your nail bed) circle to oval shapes using the brush from the nail polish bottle. 

step 3: wait five to ten minutes to allow the nail to dry. once dry, outline the purple shapes using a black striper pen my drawing small U's or C's in form of a daisy flower.


step 4: using essie school of hardrocks (green) draw one V shape on each flower to form the leaves.

step 5: to add a pop of color, use a gold stiper pen and trace over the the green leaves.
