Vintage Floral Nail Art




On Tuesday evening I was browsing ebay for nail polishes and decided to take the plunge and purchase a 24 set of nail art polish/pens! I've been deliberating about them for a while but for only £6.95 I couldn't go wrong!

I was delighted when they turned up at my door this morning, I thought I'd have to weeks until I could try them out. There's a huge assortment of colours, ranging from the basic black and white to lovely purple hues, deep reds and coppery browns.



I was at first a bit sceptical about the 'pen' tip as in the past any nail art 'pens' have always dried up and been utterly useless within the first use. These however, work like a dream! The nail brush is so thin and long for making perfect lines or strokes across the nail and the pen tip works for creating dots and fine detail.
After seeing a few YouTube videos and images on sites such as Tumblr.com and weheartit.com I wanted to try out a floral and striped design....

My Inspiration... 
The design didn't turn out flawless - but I'm actually pretty happy with the results for my first go! I'm excited about trying out new patterns too.

Nail Polishes Used: base colour blue - Barry M Pale Blue, base colour pink - Rimmel 60sec Rose Libertine
all other polishes from 24 nail art set.


If only I wasn't so clumsy and heavy handed, these nails will most likely be chipped by tomorrow :(

What do you guys think? Ever thought about trying out nail art for yourself and what design should I try next?!
