Digital Dozen does Patterns on Patterns: Floral Nail Art

 

This theme is tough for me! But I guess I already said that, so I won’t belabor the point. Yeesh! Anyways, I’ve been searching high and low for inspiration, when I saw this set by Chelsea King. Do you guys follow her? She’s a real rock star, and her blog has a lot of tips and tricks and tutorials, too! Anyways, her design was too perfect for words, so I basically copied it. No shame here! I think it looks like flowers on a fence. I’m into this floral nail art!

Chelsea’s version is much cleaner – I have got to work on my stripes! I still like it, but they are a little thick and not super even.

I started with a coat of Sinful Colors Snow Me White. Then I used China Glaze Out Like a Light to make the stripes. On top of the stripes, I blobbed on Essie Strut Your Stuff, and used Essie Hide and Go Chic and Sinful Colors Snow Me White to create some petals and definition. Then I used Essie The More the Merrier and China Glaze Holly-day for the leaves. I added some top coat, and voila!Floral Nail Art | The Dalai Lama's Nails
